That is what the breeder said his mish-mash of colors was called. He has no actual solid colors on him except his pale peach face and green wings. I will try to get a picture of him on here. Harley is quite large and when I bought him, I thought he was a female, he is so big. But DNA testing shows he is a male and now that he has bonded with Gracie Tiel and has tried unsuccessfully to mate with her all day, every day, it is obvious he is a male. He was a hand fed baby but was very hand shy when I got him. He still does not like to be handled, but he loves landing on me and accepting treats. He is the only small bird in the birdroom who stands up to the poi girls and takes no guff from them. He got his wing injured when he tried to stand up to Precie YNA, but luckily it was a flesh wound that healed nicely and he is back to normal.

Are Jitterbug and Melon males? Their personalities seem to be that of males. Such sweetiie-pies. Melon seems anxious to get in the water :hehe:

Yes, they are both dna'd males. I think the males tend to have the milder, more even, temperaments. At least that is the case with these two. :)

As someone who is seriously tempted to get a lovebird, this thread has not been good to look through!

But omg, everyone has such cute birdies! :heart:

I know there are more lovebirds around here! I'll add my three:

:heart:

Tiki - Purchased from local breeder in May 2011. My first birdy, we are quite attached to each other :swoon:

T_012212_10.jpg

D.O.B: March 21, 2011
Current Age: 1 and a half years old!
Gender: Male (not DNA'd)
Species: Rosy-Faced/Peachfaced Lovebird, Agapornis roseicollis
Mutation: Seagreen according to the 'breeder'.
Likes: Me!, all people, seeds, flying, looking out the window, bells, toys in general, napping, preening, eating, eating, and more eating, chasing the girl birdies, head scritches, baths, getting to fly the WHOLE house, just living his birdy life!
Dislikes: Me writing with pens, me holding napkins, being put back into his cage when he's clearly having a good time ..., the girl birds of the house, not getting enough attention (aka, all of the attention).



Mango - Rehomed from Cragslist in Jun. 2011 - this is at least her 3rd home
:(

M_081312_01.jpg

D.O.B: Unknown.
Current Age: Unknown. Estimated to be at least 3 years old - how much older is anyone's guess!
Gender: Female
Species: Rosy-Faced/Peachfaced Lovebird, Agapornis roseicollis
Mutation: Lutino
Likes: SEEDS, shredding, laying eggs ..., just nesting in general, Peaches bird, preening my ears - sometimes a bit too hard, foraging, baths, and chirping really loudly.
Dislikes: Hands - especially hands in her cage, being out of sight of Peaches bird.


Peaches - Adopted in Oct. 2011. At least two previous homes, not sure how many more. According to her band she was bred at a local bird shop.

P_081512_02.jpg

D.O.B: 2007 by her band.
Current Age: 5 years old
Gender: Female
Species: Rosy-Faced/Peachfaced Lovebird, Agapornis roseicollis
Mutation: I'm not sure! If there's such a mutation as Seagreen Cinnamon, I think that fits her.
Likes: Seeeeds, flying, exploring, chasing Tiki, Mango bird, attention, bathing, shredding, nesting, egg laying ..., chirp chirp chirping!
Dislikes: Being touched by hands,
Tiki, being out of sight of Mango bird.

I finally found a friend for poor Harley. He was so depressed when Gracie Tiel died. Her name is BlueBird, she is two years old and hand tame. She was very depressed and upset and missing her original daddy for the first week and flock called for him constantly. I felt so bad for her. But Harley was immediately attracted to her and it only took him two weeks to convince her he isn't such a bad guy. I had been keeping her in her own cage at first since I did not want a territorial problem with Harley if he objected to having another bird in his cage after living alone for two years. But a week ago I went into the birdroom and Blue was not in her cage; she was in Harley's cage sleeping close to him. I have left her cage in the birdroom, but she is ignoring it and spending her sleep time in Harley's cage. She allows him to sit very close to her, but he is not allowed to touch her yet; even if he accidently touches her, she gives him beak about it. They are always in the same area when I go into the birdroom when they are out, so I guess they are bonding.

I finally got some pictures of Harley and also, of course, of Blue as well. I am not sure what mutations they are, but they are definitely not regular PFLBs! I was surprised at Blue's colors; I had never seen a lovebird with a yellow forehead and white face. Blue is a fantastic little girl and I really enjoy petting her. She is a little nippy right now, but she is still adjusting to a new home. Pictures added.

Blue looks a lot like Anica, only with lighter colors and no yellow on her shoulders. They're both so adorable!
