    Sounds like he's got a great home, but was never tamed. At 7 years old, you've got a task to in front of you if you want a tame bird. A lot of patience and love will be needed, but hard to say if the lovebird will become like a handfed bird that was socialized as a baby. Good luck.

Hi, I have one pair of Lutino lovebirds and from last three months they are laying eggs but eggs do not hatch. You help me, what I do? and I have also mentioned that they lay 4 to 5 eggs and the female is sitting in the box, after 23 day what I do for eggs because eggs are still there after 23 days.

    The female doesn't sit the eggs (incubate the egggs) until the last egg is laid.  So 23 - 25 days after the last eg is laid is when they should start hatching.  If they don't candle them or open them to see if the eggs were fertile and just throw them out.  If the eggs were fertile, she isn't sitting them as much as she should.  If the eggs were not fertile, then the male just isn't mature yet and you need to wait.  It takes a few clutches for practice before they get it right.
  • awais - 2012-11-23
    No, the female sit on the eggs
  • Charlie Roche - 2012-11-23
    She would sit the eggs for 23 - 25 days after the last eg was laid.  So if she laid her fist egg 23 days ago - wait till 30- 32 days before you throw the eggs out.  Or you can candle the eggs to see if fertile or possibly one might be pipping at this stage and you can hear it.  If it has only been 23 days - the eggs might be fertile as they usually sit consistently after the last egg is laid.  It takes a few days for her to lay 4 - 5 eggs.

    lutino love birds needs more observation ... you listen very early morning to voices comming from box ... in the begning ... voices are very weak and later will become stronger ... and if these not happend ... these means ... no babys will come and you have to remove eggs from box ... and in future dont open the box to much times and good luck

    You shouldnt be breeding 2 lutino lovebirds, the eggs are not fertile or if they do have babies that hatch they will soon die.

    I had a beautiful lutino lovebird that was the love of my life. He came from 2 lutino parents. Even when they were all young they LOVED to have a 'chew fest'. I gave them cardboard boxes, literature, and crunchy brochures from places. They will definitely incorporate that into their nest and no that stuff never hurt them. I now have a peach faced lovebird that has mated with his girlfriend who is a black masked lovebird (blue). His girlfriend before that loved to make nests also. All birds have a distinct individual personality, so don't let other people scare you. Thank goodness for the internet, but I've noticed a lot of people will just try to scare the bejeebers out of you! With experience comes wisdom. I can honestly say hand feeding my little yellow guy was one of the greatest joys of my life, and I've never had a better companion than him. He absolutely loved watching TV while I was gone. (I always had kid movies recorded for him.) I guess I have to add that I bought my house for my birds, and I have 3 now that are never caged though cages are available and a cute 4 day old baby in a nest. Yes the lutinos have an absolutely heartwarming cheep when they harch. Best of luck with your new little flock!

We just bought 2 Dutch Blue Lovebirds last Friday, 3/25/11 and overnight one of them died, the shop is giving us another but how am I assured that they will take to each other. These last 2 were cuddling on a perch when we covered them for the night and the remaining bird has been playful and very active since, we are showing him/her lots of attention but are still worried that the new one might not get along with the 1st bird. The shop owner told us he is giving us a bird from the same group, both of our birds were still babies when we got them, thanks Larry and Toni

    There is no guarantee that two love birds will love. However, it would be doubtful that they wouldn't learn to like each other, play together and grow to love each other. My concern here would be why the original love bird died. Could there have been agression? Is it possible that one of the two lovebirds were ill?
  • Wendy - 2014-08-22
    It is never a good idea to cover them. Some birds have night frights, this can cause them to flap around wildly and injure themselves because they cannot see. This is especially dangerous with birds new to their environment.

I saw my lovebirds mate a couple of months back. It was start of summer in Pakistan but than they stop doing it. I was disappointed as really want the see their cute babies. They are feeding each other and getting in and out of nest box regularly but still no eggs. Perhaps it was due to the summer season as temperature goes to 35C plus. Any one help me with situation thanks. Kashif

    Yes, it could be the temperature, or low humidity, or a combination of the two, that is disrupting egg production. It could simply be that they are young. Sometimes new couples need to just try for a while until they get it. Imexperience can also keep them from properly sitting on the eggs with the first clutch.
  • Rohan Banik - 2014-08-06
    Hi kashif, i would suggest you not to expect egg from your bird during summer as this will damage your bird even their babies will be of bad health or can die. The best time to put the nest box or to expect baby from them is between 17th of september till 28th of march as per your country's weather..... Thanks
  • Kashif Manzoor - 2014-08-06
    Thanks for the valuable input. Appreciated.

    If the eggs are fertile, all five should hatch.
  • Al Estrella - 2014-06-16
    how will i know if a love birds fischers is 5 or 6 years old?
  • Clarice Brough - 2014-06-27
    The age of birds is almost impossible to determine, other than as juveniles. Your best bet is to ask the person you got them from what their hatch date was.

    They will often fuss about with their nest until they lay eggs.

    Check out the Breeding/Reproduction section on the Information and Care of Lovebirds page. The link is at the bottom of the introduction paragraph above. That will answer your age and nest box questions.
