    Clever lovebirds out of cage at night

    Hello everybody! I have 2 lovebirds, I got them about a month ago and they are still not tamed, but we’re working on it. Most of the day they spent out of cage on their bird stand playing. The problem is when it comes to night time. They love their play area so much that they don’t want to go...

    Hello! I wasn’t sure where to post this, but this seemed like the best spot. correct me if i’m wrong please! Anyhow, recently a younger sibling of mine knocked over a small glass table, and it shattered all over the living room floor, which is where my birds spend their day. I have two...

    This turned out great. I took a LOT of extra time to make sure all wires that could poke were turned and totally blunted. The cleaning and efficiency of placing the whole thing on a towel (the debris passes through) and stabilizing it with a wire to my ceiling worked out great. In the...

    Mating signs but don’t interact? (lovebirds)

    Hello! I’m a newbie so I hope someone can enlighten me on this ! :D Since my 1year lovebird kept humping my socks and sponges and tried to feed them by regurgitating on them (pretty much all day) , I decided to get a female lovebird and introduce them slowly. I wouldn’t mind...

    I was wondering what mutation do you think my lovie is? I was pretty sure she was a creamino but she now has a bit of a light peach colour between her eyes but not enough that she is an australian cinnamon. Im not sure what the parents were since when I picked her up her and her siblings were in...

    Hi all Not a lot to say. We have 16 (so far) African Lovebirds. A few are hand fed and trained. Sadly since joining my avatar bird Toto died. He had a very pronounced defect in his beak and essentially his upper beak grew deeply into his lower and I think it slowly starved him. An extremely sad...

    Lovebird Genetic Calculator

    Hello. Basically, I know how to use the calculator, but I have a doubt. I don’t understand what T1 or T2 mean. I’ve read their description, but it still doesn’t make sense. Can someone help, thanks.

    Clicker/marker training

    Hey everyone, So my lovebird has now finally started accepting treats from my hands so tonight I did very basic target training and she picked up the concept pretty well. I was wondering if marker training with a consistent "yes" would be easier than clicker training. I have an Australian...

    Getting a bird to accept treats from hands

    So my lovie that I have had for roughly 2 weeks currently won't eat any treats besides chopped walnuts and almonds and she will only eat them if they are in her food dish. I tried using millet and giving it through the bars since shes kinda hand shy but she straight up refuses millet unless it's...

    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?...

    Flightsuits? Tents?

    Hello, I used to take my male lovebird out into the backyard in the first year that I had him as his wings were clipped. He very much enjoyed being out and never really even attempted to take off anywhere (he could fly a little) but he is generally a timid and calm bird. Last year I took him...

    Pictures New Lovie mom. Would love advice!

    Hello! I just brought home my first ever Lovie tonight. He is currently sleeping and I was just curious if it's normal for them to want to sleep so early after being put in a whole new place. I just feel like he would be watching everything and not wanting to sleep. Anyways, just curious about...
