Real Wild Rainbow Lorikeets

I just saw on someone's blog a photo of a Rainbow Lorikeet taken in an aviary in Hong Kong. The bird looked a bit too skinny and some of the colors were completely 'wrong'. What have they done to the poor Lorikeets? Was it a hybrid or just some strange mutation that occurred in captivity? That made me post some old photos of real wild healthy Rainbow creatures, so that everyone can see how they look in Australia.
