Seems theres some for some other species.... I thought maybe it would be nice to see how many lovebirds are here!

I'd love for people to share names, current age, when they were born if applicable, mutation, species, and gender! Maybe even something about their lovebird(s) as well!




First up!!

ONE

Munchlax
D.O.B.: November 12th 2010
Current Age: 1 year old 7 months
Gender: DNA'd Female
Species: Peach Faced Lovebird
Mutation: Single Dark Factor Single Violet Factor Seagreen Pied (yes she is genetically pied, she has yellow speckles in some flight feathers and this makes her a pied)



We call her Munch for short, my fiance named her. She was a fire breathing dragon from day one, but has mellowed out as she has gotten older. She is aggressive and tends to be a bit of a danger to the other birds. She is Mango's younger sister, same clutch.







TWO

Mango
D.O.B.: November 7th 2010
Current Age: 1 year 7 months
Gender: DNA'd Male
Species: Peach Faced Lovebird
Mutation: Single Dark Factor Seagreen Pied

He is our most timid and our smallest bird. He loves to snuggle with his ball and relax in his tent and sometimes run in his wheel. He is Munch's older brother from the same clutch.









What about your lovebirds? How many do we have here?

I have 5...all normal peach faced. My boyfriend got me Serenity and Skittles from a pet store about two years ago and they were somewhere between 6 months to a year at the time so I think they are 2 and 1/2. Their babies are 1 year and 9 months old. None of them are hands on.

Serenity is bolder and is usually the first to try out new toys. She will also perch on my hand and will let me touch her for a second before moving away. All of the others follow her, if she comes to me they will to. They all like to preen my hair.
Little One likes to instigate sometimes, he usually is pretty good hanging out with the others, but will do little things sometimes to irritate them ...like tapping his beak on their cage or going into their cage. He's almost always the last to go back to his cage in the evening and usually has to be coaxed.

Skye is Seagreen, the beak is pink-orange at the base but yellow at the tip, key identification in seagreens vs dutch blue.



and Piper is a Seagreen too :)

That is so weird... I've never known anyone in the lovebird world to use that term.

Poca (Left one on the clock): 8 year old, DNA'd Male Lutino Peach Faced Lovebird. I got him as a rehome when he was 3.5 years old and he was semi-tame. I had him completely tamed and imprinted on me in 72 hours of constant one-to-one time with me. Tolerates other humans but becomes nippy with them if they hold him for too long. Will allow me to maul him any which way, but screams when I start picking his pinnies:D Also hates all other birds and very territorial of his cage only with other birds. Really hates Coco as he sees him as competition for my attention. He will stare down both our dogs.

Coco (Right on the clock): 4 year old, DNA'd Male Lutino Peach Faced Lovebird. I got him as a 12 week hand-tamed baby. He is also imprinted on me but tolerates other humans better than Poca does, in that he does not nip, just squirms out of their grasp. I can maul him any which way. He is fiestier than Poca, but I attribute that to the fact that he is half Poca's age. Also dislikes when I get at his pinnies. Will stare down both dogs. Hates Poca and "bullies" him. Is territorial of his cage with Poca and Kiwi (our male cockatiel) but not humans.
