mating time

my boy lori does this all the time. We have since given him a toy duck to caress instead of my hand. The rubbing is them pleasuring themselves. It will pass but I recommend trying to find something else besides your hand to rub on. The last thing you want is for them to get emotionally attached to your hand.

My lorikeet used to do this. My lorikeet is a Male. If his puffed and acting a little funny, looking for a good grip of your hand, and sometimes biting, In short his mating with your hand. Mine left a mess on my hand and on my brother’s hand. I can be wrong about yours, but this is what mine was trying to do.

Hello I have the same problem with mine but that passes after awhile. I beleive its because thier hormons are playing up. How old is yours?

Best regards,
