    Talking here's the new lorikeet!







    she is a rainbow x musk lorikeet 12 months old. (dna sexed definate female) she was hand raised but has been in an aviary, her wings were just cut by the lady who owned her so shes a bit clumsy and getting used to no wings, but she can get quite some distance when she tries to fly! D:

    she has a really colourful head and bright lime green underneath because of being a hybrid. (is that the right word? hybrid?)

    she needs a name too!!

    not mrs vicious.. because shes very sweet and LICKS EVERYTHING. licky licky licky. as opposed to sid- bitey bitey bitey. i should post some vids of them, they are soooo adorable.

    Lickety Split!

    She's even the right colour for it! Gorgeous thing

    PS- have just realised you over the ponders might be wondering what i on about- Lickety Splits were these neon fruit ice lollies in the 90's. Came with 2 sticks and a thinner bit of lolly in the middle. you licked- you split.


    Thanks Lee for the adorable sig!

    ACK! Don't use Nancy. That sounds almost foreboding. I like the Lickity Splits.

    She's beautiful though. Love the unusual colouring. And you got some KICK BUTT pics of her! Very clear and beautiful. Nobody would get upset, I'm sure, if you decided to post more...

    haha i just realised you said she was 12mths old... have fun with the hormones! females are NASTY when they are hormonal. my girl was so nasty she'd launch (fully clipped) at the waist high German Shepard and hang off his nose till she had made him bleed till she was satisfied. and even then she'd still go at his feet till she knew he was out of the room.

    i love the lickers.. wait till you get a tongue in your eye, ear or up your nose. Birdbird was a licker, he'd tongue everything and anything. he really liked licking the bubbles from softdrink, he wouldnt drink it, he'd just lick the bubbles off the side haha.

    im kinda glad the ex still has the female, Berry. she was one psycho b**ch.

    LOL yeah... Cosmo launches herself at feet. She attacked my husband's feet, and man oh man was he ever p*ssed! lol

    Well, it was funny till she attacked MY feet. And I was like... wtf??? But I guess I was too close to "her" territory. And she didn't attack me nearly with as much hostility as what Gary got. But it still hurt.
