Today(24/07) I took delivery at Adelaide Airport of my second Rainbow Lorikeet Sam! She's the sister of my original potty mouth dude Sparky. She's about a year younger than him but comes from the same parents. She bobs up and down on her perch and says 'Be quiet Sam' and 'Shut Up Sam' and a few other things her breeder told me about that I've forgotten. She's already had a bath in her water dish and after I put her in her cage and shut the door she told me to 'Be Quiet!'. Seems she's got the same smartarse 'tude of her big brother. Anyway here are some pics they are labelled appropriately. I'll include a pic of Sparky as well!
Apparently Sam takes after her mother and Sparky takes after his father. Their Dad has more of a reddy chest and thier Mum has a more yellowy chest. I don't know if Sam will colour up any more as she gets older like Sparky did but it'll be no big deal if she doesn't. I just have to teach Sam to perch on my finger now and start extending her vocab more! I'm betting inside a month she and Sparky will be having arguments all by themselves!....LOL
there funny little chatterers arent they, every time you walk past harriette, "hello harry". She learnt to say harry cause we always called her harry as we thought she was a boy, but our little darling layed an egg about a year ago lol, so that gave her sex away.
