She also ate some seed from a spoon with my hand a couple inches from her. Im so happy and excited for us to...

    Something Wrong With My Lovebird?

    My Lovebird has been regurgitating on his favorite toy (His Rope/hoop Swing) and eating it back up a lot lately. And when he does, it happens a few times in a row. Is he okay? Is this normal? Please let me know!

    How much food?

    I´m really curious, how much do your lovebirds (past or present) eat in one day? Or how much do you feed them? I have seeds and pellets galore avail. for my birds after an all-you-can-eat veggie breakfast. I want to slowly cut down and stop wasting so much because I empty the seed pellet bowls...

    Pictures The silencer*

    *well more or less ;) I don't have the biggest imagination when making DIY toys, but I do know what they enjoy... The flock (mainly the Blue Team) has been so noisy today, I think the doves aren't helping either. So, a 5 minute toy is created and now I have a little bit of peace and quiet...

    Bonding with Lovebird

    Hey everyone, So about 10 days ago I got a handfed baby lovebird (8 weeks or so) and I was wondering if anyone can give me some tips and tricks on bonding with her. So far I have just sat by her cage periodically and talked to her gently and put my hand in or by the cage to get her used to...

    A new skill?

    Expert tail-maker Sydney has been offering demonstrations on how to nest, however I'm not sure Adélie is learning much.... She is instead following in her fathers footsteps by following the other around and pulling out all the stored paper. *For anyone who doesn't know my birds, to clarify...

    Video I hear this every afternoon...

    This is the sound these guys make when they are winding down for a nap... Every single day. Bear in mind it is louder and more shrill in person. Sydney and Adélie don't get involved, this is all the blue team, mainly these two, Lapis and Nube. Why can't they just close their eyes and nap?...

    A modern day birdy love saga

    Will she wait for him? Starting a few weeks ago when Adélie started to spread her wings in her cage whilst gazing at Sydney, it has been a slow journey to love for her. Since then we have had Adélie using her beautiful wings and loud vocals as tools in the hopes of seducing the handsome (and...

    Video She's such a good girl...

    ... Or is she?... Is she really? o_O Of course she is! I'm thinking this is her way of telling me, "there's no more millet left on here, fill it now human fool!" :)
