    Tips on how to get my bird to eat out of my hand?

    I have had my lovebird for more than 2 weeks now, and he is able to eat millet from my hand a couple inches away. But whenever I try to offer him millet from the palm of my hand he looks interested, but scared to move. I've been trying everyday in and out of his cage but he won't come that...

    Why does my bird keep on chirping?

    Whenever I'm not paying attention to my bird while we're in the same room he always starts squeaking and chirping. Same thing goes for when I leave the room and I'm not there. I'm not sure if he's happy or he just wants some attention?

    Is my birds diet okay?

    I want to give my lovebird the best I can, so I wanted to double check and ask if the diet my pet store told me to give my lovebird is okay. I give him oat groats, hemp seeds, and a mix of pellets and seeds. Of course I can separate the pellets from the seeds since I have a whole bag of them...

    Taming a skittish but friendly lovebird

    I got a new lovebird ~6 months ago (he's almost one and a half), and I've slowly made some progress taming him, but it's been especially slow for a while now. He can fly, so I bring him to a bathroom for clicker training to limit his flight space. I'm able to get him to step up and sit on my...

    I don’t think my lovebird but when I got her she has a lot of other qualities from different love birds. I got her at a pet store.

    I believe my LoveBird is a Fischer lovebird from what I can tell. I got her in a local pet store. There are no adoption centers near me. I love this bird to death but I am curious if she is a hybrid I have read that hybrids can have health issues and would like some insight.

    Longer days, time change, and bedtime

    Hi all, not sure if this is the right place to post this but haven’t found it elsewhere on this forum. I’m curious about how you all are dealing with the time change and end of daylight savings time, in regards to bedtime? I usually always put my solo lovebird Lola to sleep at 8 pm on weekdays...

    Lovebird Yeast

    Today my ~1 yr old female lovebird was playing around in my cabinet and she tore through a powder of dry yeast. When I found her, she was covered in it and I assume she had also ingested some. Is there anything to worry about? She took a bath after and its been around 4 hours and she is happily...

    So this has been an ongoing problem with my lovebird pair. Basically, I have a female and a male (not sure about this, but most likely) and the female is more brave in terms of exploring new areas/people and she doesn’t get scared very easily. Whereas my male does. And so since around September...

    Happy hut: yes or no?

    I have two lovebirds but one particulary, seems very attached to it. Whenever I try to take it out to clean it, she becomes immediately aggressive and starts biting me hard until I leave it, and trust me I don't wanna leave it in but I'm sure fellow lovebird owners know how painful a bite can be...
