    Lovebirds smell - w/ Poll

    Without coming across as weird, I love how my lovebirds chicks smell! Did/do yours smell nice too? My adult lovebirds smell really good, but the chicks smell sweeter.

    Lovebird’s toe not functioning

    Hi y’all, My 3 yo female lovebird has a toe that appears to be non-functional. I don’t know when this started because she never exhibited any stress or pain from her foot. She is as active as ever. Eats whatever she can, and even digs...so I’m sure she’s not in pain. Its her back toe, not just...

    First time out of cage!

    I've had my blue masked lovebird, Aoife, for about three weeks and I think she's ready to maybe come out of the cage. She's still hand shy so my tactic is to open the cage and then "ignore" her. We'll stay in the spare bedroom, the bird room although she's currently my only bird. Her flight...
