Overall, Rainbow Lorikeets make excellent pets for those who are committed to providing excellent quality care for their pets, and who have plenty of free time to spend with them. These are friendly, funny, affectionate birds who typically bond strongly to their owners, so it is important for those who want a Rainbow Lorikeet to realize that adopting one of these birds means committing to 20+ years of daily interaction.
Lorikeets are known for being especially messy due to their liquid-based diets. When choosing a location for a Lorikeet’s cage, it’s important to take this into consideration and place the cage in an area where there is no carpet and where the floors and walls can be easily wiped clean. Thankfully, Rainbow Lorikeets are very intelligent birds, and can be easily “potty trained” if an owner so chooses.
