||Ten months old|
is one of the spunkiest birds I've ever owned. He loves everyone
and he's always happy to see us when we come home. He plays soccer on the
bottom of his cage 'cause when he's out, he rather be on us hanging off our
shirts being sweet and observe everything when we walk through the house.
The day we saw him was at the bird fair, I've never purchase birds from
bird fair ever in all the years I've been there. But this little guy stole
our heart. The handler couldn't get him to come out without using a towel
and I got him to come out without struggle. He hopped right onto my arm and
walked up my arm and then lay his head on my shoulder. I knew I was in
trouble right then and there. The handler was surprised to see that and
said I've been the only person he's done that with and he really likes me.
So we took him home, but unfortunately he wasn't weaned properly so he was
still begging to be fed and it really upset me. Since he's a nectar feeder,
and I had only gotten a little bag of it from the handler, I had to quickly
order some online. I received the order damaged with the powder leaking
everywhere. I was not about to use it so I sent it back for a replacement
and it was going to be another week before I got some and I was about to be
out of formula. I broke down and cried cause I didn't want him to starve
and not get the proper nutrition he needed. All the pet shops pretty much
stopped carrying nectar. Thank goodness for a breeder friend of mine who
had some on hand. I bought it from him to hold Malachai over until his
nectar got here.
He's such a sweetie pie that made us to be his slave, but we really
couldn't ask for a better bird. He will hop like a bunny and follow us
everywhere we go and likes to go inside of our shirts and cuddle. He'll
sleep in your shirt too. He'll lay on his back to play and roll the ball
around with his feet, he's just a joyful bird!
Malachai squeaks and chatters a lot. He does make a high pitched screech
that'll make you deaf for a bit if he does it by your ear. He's got a great
personality and he loves being with us whenever possible. He gets his warm
nectar every night while he gets fruits and veggies during the day with
some dry nectar sprinkled over it. He gets lory nuggets once a week, and
fresh filtered water daily. He loves toys, especially the ones with bells
in it. He rolls them around or kick it like playing soccer. He kisses us
every day and hangs on our shirts to observe everything. He's a silly
spunky bird! I would recommend Black Lory to anyone as long as they can
deal with the mess they make and their dietary requirements. He's one of my
top picks for a great companion!!!
