Little bit about Zippy

Hi everyone my name is… Zippy!

We are looking for our new forever home . Let me tell you a few things about me. I am a beautiful rainbow lorikeet and require a particular diet . I mostly live of nectar and would require to be fed fresh supplement made nectar 2-3 times daily .
Unlike other birds I don’t eat bird seed. I can also eat certain types of fresh fruit ,green vegetables and some edible organic flowers . Since I am a nectar eating bird I can be very messy so please keep that in mind if you are considering adopting me.

I also would love to have a large bird aviary so I am able to spread my wings and fly from perch to perch . I love having things to do and love chewing things so please give me enrichment and branches in my enclosure ( need to make sure the type of branches are safe for me).

During my time here I have been matched up with another lorikeet his name is Happy we have been spending lots of time together in our Aviary and we have become such good friends that we would like to stay together forever.

I can be particularly loud at times so please keep this in mind if you have neighbors close by . I am also not hand raised and I can be nippy if you stick your hand out to me so please make sure little kiddies wont be sticking their fingers in my enclosure. If you would like to apply for me , please look at the link above!

– Must have large bird enclosure (please provide photos of enclosure)
– Breed knowledge or breed experience
-Must go home with Happy 507294
