    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...

    Video Lapis and Nube also got a new swing..

    This is the first wing they have had. They have the wooden climbing frame and it swings, but never a single perch swing before. They are just the cutest thing to look at all floofed up snuggling on the swing together! Here is when they first got it:

    Pictures Untame, bonded lovebird pair destroy everything in sight

    Hi all. About a month and a half ago, we got two lovely bonded lovebirds, Chino and Chai. They are extremely affectionate with one another, and my husband and I don't mind that they may never truly bond with us. We let them out of their cage every day for pretty much the whole day, only closing...

    Is there best cage for lovebirds???

    I have a typical rectangle flight cage, marketed more for finches. It seems okay in size for them but with the new babies I was thinking about upgrading to something larger... Is there a best cage you've found & do lovebirds prefer height or width? I was thinking of something like this...

    I recently just got a black masked love bird and on Sunday evening he suddenly died. I've only had him for about 2 months and haven't even help him yet, he was showing no signs of illness or lack of appetite. Before he died he was extremely active moving and climbing all around his cage when I...
