    Weaning - Biting - Clicker training?

    Hi everyone! I have a beautiful baby lovebird of nearly 3 months now. I got her about a month ago when she was about 7 weeks or so. Yes this was young. And yes she is not entirely weaned yet. Still on formula 1X a day. We went from 2-3 times a day to one. She has been going back to 2X and...

    Lovebird cage size?

    Hi guys :) I'm currently in the process of researching for my future bird (most likely in the summer/fall) and I wanted to see what you lovebird-owners would recommend in terms of cage size for a single lovebird. A lot of online sources recommend cage sizes that seem really tiny to me, but...

    Pictures Beak chipping, normal?

    Looked at my girl today to see that her beak was chipped in a weird fashion. Is this a normal part of beak growth? It doesn’t seem like something urgent, no blood or scabs or anything, but you can never be too sure. Also, her feathers look like that because she just finished having a bath.

    I live in an apartment with two roommates who are out for most of the day, most days of the week. I on the other hand, spend most of the day, most days of the week, at home by myself. Even when my roommates are studying at home, they like to wear noise-cancelling headphones. For this reason, I...

    They think I'm their mate!

    Hey guys, I own two male lovebirds. They are on a pellet and seed diet and I try to get them used to veggies. They have a very big cage and lots of toys they enjoy. They get 12 hours darkness.

    DIY quick paper foraging/shredding toy

    I made a toy for my lovebirds and was pretty proud of how it turned out. :yes4: For some reason my balls turned out looking more like prisms :lol: Here is the tutorial for the braiding/folding To thread the balls onto a chain I used a bobby pin. They're seriously handy as bird-toy-needles.

    Getting another bird.

    Hi, I’ve been thinking about getting a lovebird(not for a few months as I want to know a lot more about them) but I have a 4 year old female cockatiel she’s very clingy to me and has always been the only bird in the house. They wouldn’t be housed in the same cage but would be in the same room...
