    Is the discoloration on my lovie normal?

    I noticed her peach isn’t in a straight line like it always is, she has some pale colors making the line uneven on her head. Is this normal or is a vet visit in order?

    Lovebird won't stop screaming

    About a month ago, my partner and I took in a lovebird that we believe was cage-bound for most of his life. We have found that if he hears us or our other bird, he will start going off and he can go for hours! We give the lovebird the option to stay in or leave his cage but whether he is in the...

    Urgent Weird Lovebird behavior for years

    My lovie is 8 years old and she’s exhibited these behaviors for almost 4 years now. We have done every exam in the book- x-rays, blood work, crop swabs, gram stains. Everything comes out clear. She remains at a healthy weight, never loses any. I’m at a loss, she goes through periods where she’s...

    Handling issues

    Hi all! My peach faced baby is nearly 6 months old. When we got him at 3 months he was supposed to be hand-raised but the breeder really struggled to catch him and it was obvious he hadn’t been handled at all. (I say he but we have no clue as of yet) We’ve been attempting to tame him and I think...

    Urgent Lovebird has watery poops after accident

    Hi everyone! So lovely to meet everyone here. I have a very sweet, 11 month old Peach-Faced Lovebird. He is so full of energy and loves people.

    My 3-4 Month Old Rosy-Faced Lovebird won't eat or drink

    Hi everyone! My dad found a Rose-faced lovebird yesterday and long story short we're keeping it. (It was definitely a pet that escaped, we asked around but no one had any clue so we brought it home). Took it to the Vet for a general check-up and they found nothing wrong with it. I told them...

    How to train a loud and skittish Lovebird?

    The chirping while napping during the day is louder than normal but that's not the main issue. When he is awake then we can't even hear each other talk in the house because our Lovebird gets super load with continues loud noises (more like screaming) and singing like a Canary. He is almost 3...
