    Lovebird refuses to go back into cage

    Hey all! Just wanted to ask for some advice on this. My Lovebird Helios has always been a very calm bird. I know hormones happen but I'm not sure if that is the cause of what's happening. Recently, whenever I let her out (in the bird room) she absolutely refuses to step up and will not return...

    Going to college and having a single lovebird, will that be okay?

    Hello, before you guys start saying no, do hear me out :) When i went to a bird store, (i know that adopting is better but i don’t have any places to adopt birds in my area) i saw a lovebird in a cage with 3 other lovebirds. He looked rather lonely and distanced himself from the 3 other...

She had previously did this before but it only lasted about a minute...
