Red-tailed Parrot

To visit the Loro Parque Foundation’s breeding centre is a rare and unforgettable experience. The professionalism of the people working there is impressive. It is here we begin to understand why so many parakeets, parrots, lorikeets and others suffer as much in captivity in private homes. Everything is important, from the cage size, through to the ambient temperature, cleanliness of the cage, and the food. Some of the parrots consume fruit and nectar, others eat seeds, without speaking about lorikeets which consume only worms during the breeding and nesting season, whereas they hardly touch them the rest of the time!
Food is carefully prepared, weighed, sorted, and chosen according to each species. All utensils are is very clean and meals are worked out by a head chef worthy of the best restaurants. Cleaning of cages is regular, scrupulous and daily of course.
