Yellow Backed Chattering Lories
L. g. flavopalliatus ( subspecies of Chattering lory)
This beautiful subspecies of Chattering Lory is endemic to Kasiruta, Bacan, Obi and Mandiole Islands, Indonesia. They are a large Lory with spectacular scarlet, green and yellow plumage .
We think Yellow Backed Chattering Lories are one of the prettiest exotic lories, they are vibrant, playful and engaging and they make a lovely addition to any collection.
We obtained our original birds in 1999 through back trades with Adelaide zoo and have added to the collection over the years to keep a wide genetic diversity amongst our breeding stock. We focus on maintaining large yellow back patches within our lines, keeping them true to the subspecies.
We find they are relatively easy to bred in captivity and are generally very attentive parents if they aren't disturbed.
All our birds are either parent started or parent reared this way they receive the natural crop and gut flora from the parents which is important for a robust immune system.
The first step to successfully breeding Lories is obtaining healthy compatible pairs. If you're interested in enquiring about availability or purchasing some of our stock, whether it be single birds or unrelated pairs or if you're just after some more advice on this species,
