Blue Breasted Black Capped Lory
The nominate species is an absolutely stunning, larger sized Lory with bold contrasting colours of red, blue, black and green.
We have found this species to be hardy and easy to breed in captivity. They generally lay two eggs per clutch and can breed all year round in the warmer states.
We believe in enabling a bird to have the best possible immune system hence all our stock are either parent started or aviary raised so they can obtain the crop and gut flora from the parents.
They are an active bird that will benefit from a source of natural enrichment eg. gum branches. casuarina branches , bottle brush or grevilia. They will also enjoy access to a bathing source either a bowl of water or mist sprays. A chain hanging from the roof of an aviary will be utilized as a swing and give them hours of entertainment and enjoyment.
