Notes: All of our baby lovebirds are parent raised for the first three weeks of their life. This practice helps to ensure that a strong immune & gut flora system develops.
At three weeks old the babies are pulled from the nest and we begin to be handfed and socialize. Through the weaning process, the birds are introduced to a variety of pellets, seed, fruits, vegetables, rice, and pasta. They start to choose favorite types of food, explore, and begin to develop personalities. We encourage new bird owners to join us in this stage of growth. The opportunity to learn and grow together is essential for a bonded lasting friendship for many years to come.
All birds are abundance weaned and are eating fully on there own before they can go to there new home.
Food and water dishes need to be placed on the floor of the cage for a new lovebird until you notice them using the higher dishes in the cage. Water source needs to be non-chlorinated, as the chlorination levels in town water can harm a bird. A variety of fruits and vegetables should be offered several times a week. A vitamin supplement is a wise choice as some lovebirds tend to be picky eaters.
Lovebirds have a lifespan of up to 15 years and are not known to be talkers. They have the fun personality of parrots while being easy to house because of their size. Lovebirds are little clowns, playing for hours at a time. They love to hang from toys, spin them around, and dance on your shoulder. They love to snuggle and preen. Many people believe lovebirds must be kept in pairs. This is simply not true. A single lovebird makes a better pet because it bonds to you rather than to another lovebird. If you plan on spending a lot of time with your bird you can keep it alone. However, if you work long hours and don't think you'll have a lot of time for your love bird, we recommend you get him a companion. This will keep your lovebirds happy and prevent boredom.
If you choose a single lovebird, we strongly advise against having a mirror in the cage as it promotes aggression, and the lovebird may become less friendly to its owners, and friendlier to its own image in the mirror. Two to three toys are suggested with a variety of textures for stimulation and enjoyment. A variety of perch thicknesses is necessary to exercise the birds feet
