Duyvenbody's Lory Species Profile
Traits:  Although Duyvenbody's lories are rarely kept as pet birds, those who have lived with them note that they are intelligent, entertaining pet birds that can be hand-tamed. Pet Duyvenbody’s lories tend to crave human attention and become very affectionate. They love toys, need plenty of playing opportunities, and ideally should be housed in a flight, pet bird cage or aviary that allows them room to fly.

Behavior/Health Concerns:  With their harsh, fairly loud calls, Duyvenbody’s lories are not ideal in an preferably not an apartment setting, which may disturb neighbors. This species primarily eats nectar and fruit in the wild, and should be given the same diet in our homes. They have a tendency to squirt waste matter and because their diets contain nectar, the fairly liquid-like waste can make the surrounding area around the pet bird cage dirty. Easy-to-clean surfaces around the cage or aviary or where waste can be easily hosed off, are good housing options.

Expert Advice
"Lories need special diets to avoid iron issues.”
