Hope you all are well. Well, the thing is, I just bought a new baby lorikeet (12 weeks old) and it was fine in the beginning, but just one day after, for no reason at all, it started biting into my flesh so hard that it made me bleed. I actually had nightmares about it! I tolerated for a few days, thinking that he is just trying to adjust, but he just wont quit! I had been feeding him properly, giving him things to play with, kept enough and clean water every day, and also made sure he got enough sleep. But it had come to a point that I was terrified of it, and decided to take it back to the pet shop. A terrible experience!
But then, I decided to give it another try. I did not take him back again, but took a new and quieter one back home with me in exchange of him. This one is 11 weeks old.
Now I would really really love to hear from anyone who has raised atleast 1 baby lorikeet. I would like to know about a few things, if possible:
1) How do we put them to sleep? I thought about keeping him in a cozy bedroom, which is least intruded upon, with a thin bedsheet covering 3 sides of his cage, with one left for air circulation. I also kept the room dark, with very little light entering.
2) How should I get it acquainted with my home? And family? And friends?
I think thats enough for now.
Thank you so much for atleast taking the pain to read all that. ANd if you do reply, I am very grateful in advance.
