Welcome to Lories Limited
My name is Chris Touchton, I bought my first Lory (Chattering) back in 1989 at a pet store. He was a scared import. I just loved to watch him. I want all the animals in my life to have companions so I bought him a mate, and then acquired a string of Lories that all had to be paired up also. One thing led to another and the pairs started to produce young. I got into Lories because I love to just watch them. They fascinate me. I am in "this" for the Lories I am dedicated to their care and proprogation. If we do not work with them the species will disappear from the USA. Since 1992 (Wild Bird Conservation Act) there have been no regular importation of any parrots (with very few exceptions of Consortiums throughout the years) So we have to work with what bloodlines/species that we currently have in the USA. My main goal is to get progeny into other breeder's hands to work with. I produce approximately 200 Lory babies a year at this point (25 to 30 different types depending on the breeder bird's moods). Some of the species that I am working with will not go into the pet trade at all. The others that are more readily available are offered into the pet trade or Zoo's exhibits.
If you have any Lory questions you are more than welcome to ask whether they are my lories or someone else's. As I said before I am in this for the Lories.
