Here are two birds who have been in our care since October: Cherry and Peach.
Cherry and Peach have found themselves at the shelter due to a change of circumstances and want to find a parrot-experienced home to call their own. Lorikeets aren't the easiest birds to keep, so it will be important for their new family to be well informed of their needs and requirements.
This dynamic duo are loud little critters who enjoy whispering, talking and screaming their conversations to anyone that will listen. These feathery friends are the best of pals and spend their time gossiping about everyday life.
Cherry and Peach would love to have a large aviary to themselves, or even share their new space with other lorikeets (as long as slow and careful introductions are made). Lorikeets require a special diet, one they currently are on and will need to continue when they leave the shelter and find forever homes.
This pair love to swing on their toys, shred foliage and, of course, spend time with each other. Cherry and Peach are looking for a super committed family as they could live up to 30 years!
- Call into the shelter at 12 Kirkpatrick Street Weston, Monday to Saturday between 10am and 4pm or for more information call 6287 8100.
