    Considering a Quaker but...

    A few months ago I got a 4 month year old female lovebird (the love of my life), and I've been heavily considering getting a Quaker. Of course they would not house together, but out of the cage, would they get along? I've been researching them big time but any tips and information you could...

    1st time bird owner....

    Hi all! I'm a long time cat lady but have always wanted a bird, so September 22 I adopted my little Aiofe. She's 5 months old, blue mask lovebird. I was told at the parrot shop that she and her siblings hadn't been socialized enough so I could expect to be patient. And I am patient and she's...

    New Lovey Owner Looking for Advice

    Hiya, I am new to the forum and to bird keeping and I just picked up my baby lovebird yesterday. It's (not sure on gender) doing well eating, drinking and exploring. But today it keeps going between napping and having so much energy he's pacing his cage and flying all over the place. He doesn't...

    Lovebird and Cockatiel?

    Hi! I'm pretty new here, and I wanted to ask a question, that I hadn't seen an answer to. (If someone already asked a question like this, then I apologize.) I am going to get a hand tame, young lovebird soon, and I am interested in a hand tame cockatiel as a buddy. I have heard that they can get...

    NEW MEMBER WITH A LOVE BIRD

So I just rescued a lovebird a that seems to have flown from one of the neighbours a few days ago and I decided to keep it and named it tweety lol. As apparent, I have zero experience in birds and...

    What is the best type of cage for a lovebird?

    Hi! So, I'm currently the owner of 2 male budgies, however, when I'm older, I'm planning to get a single lovebird. I've been doing a little bit of research here and there, and I was wondering what cage would be best suited for a single lovebird. Like, should it be a flight cage (Long), or just a...

    Love Bird Attacks

    My girlfriend and I have been dating for about 8 months now and she has had her lovebird for almost a year. She is a female lovebird and for a while really took a liking to me. The first time she bit me it wasn't very hard but it was enough for me to shake her off. Since the day she bit me, she...

    Lovebird has been egg bound 3 times...What are my options?

    My lovebird, Petey, is 9 years old. She has never had chronic egg laying problems. She has layed infertile eggs in the past, but never more than 3 per year that I can recall. This year, she layed 1 or 2 normal eggs before she became egg bound the first time. When that happened she went on Lupron...

    Petey has been plucking chest feathers? (Photo included)

    Petey has been going through egg binding issues :( I’ve never had this problem before and am still dealing with it. She’s making soft eggs and can’t push them out. I’m hoping the vet and I will be able to fix the problem so that Petey will be okay. Maybe it’s hormonal, but it looks like she’s...

    Continue what I'm doing or not?

    So some might know I have a lovebird. Now, he is still scared of hands. Grab a snack since it'll be a long post. So when I first got him I made the mistake of putting my hands in the cage the very first day when I should've left him alone to settle. The next day I got his wings clipped because...

    Lovebird having trouble pooping

    Só...my 9 year old lovebird seems to struggle to poop sometimes. I also don’t think she poops as often as a lovebird is supposed to. For the first time ever, Petey the female lovebird became eggbound earlier this year. She was put on Lupron shots for a couple months to help prevent her from...

    Possible mass on lovebird’s lower abdomen?

    Hi! I’m new to forums, so I’m not sure if I’m doing this right, but I’m concerned about my female lovebird...I can post a picture, but it was very hard to get a good one. Her abdomen seems to be slightly enlarged...it looks like she has a lump above her cloaca... A few months ago, I took her to...

    So I have a 6 year old lovebird and in the past 2 months he started breaking blood feathers. He’s had them for 6 years but never broke them but it started 2 months ago.

    Rescue Lovebird

    I have a fischer's lovebird named Bria who I rescued last November. (I have no idea it's age or gender but I just call it a she) She flew into a spiders web in my yard and I eventually caught her.

    Have a huge problem with biting

    My peach face lovebird is about 3 months old. Not sure what happened to him. He suddenly started cuddling me a lot one day. Constantly wanted to sleep on me, especially under my chin. One day I bring him home and take him out like normal. He jumped right on my hand easy. And then he started...

    Baby Lovebird Advice

    I've got a bit of a wild story, and I'm looking for advice from some lovebird experts... I live in Phoenix, AZ, and for those of you who do not know, we actually have a thriving population of African lovebirds (the populations started from birds that escaped from pet stores). They only survive...

    Help with taming

    My father got a pair of peach faced lovebirds a few months back. He got them on a whim because he wanted to surprise my mother with a gift. Unfortunately, neither of them knew how to properly care for birds at that moment, and neither did I. Heck, we even thought they were conures for the...
