Best friends forever

Hi, we are Eric & Ernie

PP number: PP1281/82

 

Name: Eric & Ernie

 

Species: Lorikeets

 

Adoption fee: £300

 

Introduction:

We are a couple of super cheeky and mischievous Rainbow Lorikeets that will entertain you with our
acrobatics and wrestling for hours on end! Although we’re called Eric and Ernie, we’re actually a boy and a
girl, and we’re about 3-years-old.
We don’t have a preference for male or female and we’ll happily fly to the small people in our safe
house and preen their hair. We love anyone ernie is the more confident of the two and loves to
give you kisses .We love to sing (or squawk) the song of our people, especially at mealtimes, so you’ll need to be comfortable with some noise! We also know some human words – “kiss”,
“whatcha doing?”, “step up”, “hello” etc and lots of whistles and honks.

History/Background:

We came into Problem Parrots through no fault of our own, our previous owner had us since babies but due to change in circumstance they could no longer give us care & attention we were used to.

 

Current Presentation:

We are fully feathered and flighted. Ernie’s (the female) feathers are not in the best condition but a good diet and time should get her looking her best. We absolutely love to have a bath every other day – be prepared to get wet as we splash around in a tray of water! Sometimes we’ll let safe house Mum mist us with a bottle, but we’re not as keen on this.

 

Training:

We both step up when told and we both fly to you when you call our names.

 

Diet:

Our diet is quite different to a lot of parrots because we have brush tongues and are nectarfeeders. We should have access to Lori nectar at all times. This needs to be changed in the
morning and afternoon, especially in the summer. The rest of our diet is made up of fruit and
vegetables. We especially like berries, pomegranate, apple, grapes, mango, broccoli and peppers.
All our food used to be pureed but safe house Mum has found we like it chopped, as it gives us
some interesting textures. Unlike other parrots we shouldn’t eat seed mixes or nuts as these could
damage the delicate brushes on our tongues.

Enrichment:

We LOVE toys and will be bringing lots of them to our new forever home. We especially love
shredding paper and cardboard, ropes we can “preen” and toys we can hang off and dangle
around on!
We love to spend time outside of our cage exploring and wrestling with each other, but will happily
play inside as well

Summary:

Eric and Ernie are fantastic birds and they make us laugh so much with their antics! They love to
be out all day long, either sat with you giving you kisses, or sat play fighting at top of there cage,
They are nectar feeders so bare this in mind as they can be messy when eaters and pooing.
They can be vocal, but they love to talk and argue with each other.
They are great aerobatics, they love to dangle of anything they can find.
They both step up and they both go into there cage with no problem.
Overall they are lovely birds and will defiantly keep you entertained all day long,
They deserve their chance of happiness, they may be small but have huge personalities.
You will never have a dull moment with Eric and ernie they will make you laugh all day long and
keep you on your toes
