My peachfaced love bird flew into our house and he took to me right away but I think he was abused cause he won't land on my finger. He gets very scared but he will fly on my shoulder im trying for him to get used to my hand please help me.

    Soulder is biggger to land on.   He will earn to trust you and step up on your finger, just give him some time.  Hold him close to your chest so he can hear your heart beat and just pet the top of his head.  He will start to get used to your fingers.

    You really can't tell the age except possibly when they are very old.

We just lost our darling lovebird, who lived to be 20 years old...we got Wellesley when my daughter was 16 and she just turned 36. I cannot imagine a more loving and lovable pet.

My first question is I have a Lutino and peached face love bird can they be macthed?The second question is how long they need to spend to be partners. I put them in a separate cage for a week now and it seems that the lutino bird always bully the peached face bird. Thanks in advance guys

    Yes, they can be mated and they do cross breed.  What you call being a bully is probably just the two of them deciding who is in charge.  The male will usually 'bully' the female to be in the back of the cage to protect her and possibly he wants to mate and she isn't ready.  The female will usually be the 'bully' when she is ready to breed.  It is normal behavior and just let hem work it out.  They are sexually mature around 12 monhs of age.

How can i sex my love birds? without getting them DNA tested, I took em to a petshop and i was told I had 3 females and one male, how can i check myself? They told me that the females have a wider pelvic bone than the males

    You can't - not with 100% accuracy.  Yes, females in general have a wider pelvic bone - but it is a best guess as to who has the wider pelvic bone and some males may be larger than others.  You can say that females have a rounder head (which is true) but sure easier to see before they feather in.  You can say males seem to have a flatter head with a ridge sloping toward the back of the neck but it is a ridge that sometimes you can see and or feel.  It takes a lot of experience and breeding for a breeder to be able to differentiate the male from the female and they aren't always accurate -  can't be.  No way to know without DNA sexing.

    Their basic food and then add some scrambled eggs with the shell in, diced cooked sweet potatoe, tuna, millet and anything nutricious that you eat.  You can also add a vitamin supplement to the mashed food.

I want to know how to distinguish the sex of peach faced love bird (green color) as I bought one peach faced love bird and one luttino (yellow colour) ,, thinking luttino is female ....

    Color doesn't have anything to do with the sex of the love bird.  Looking at the birds head from the side, the females head is a smooth round curve from the eyes over the top of the head o the neck.  The males head has a flatter appearance.  That works most of the time, however, there is no 100% way to determine the sex of a lovebird without DNA esting.  You can purchase the kits in the back of the Bird Talk Magazine.

My love bird is 16 years old. He seems to be in relatively good health. He has had trouble flying, but still tries to fly a short distance from his cage to my shoulder when I am watching TV on the recliner in the livingroom. I very rarely have to leave him with anyone although I have left him with neighbors in the past. This time I have to take a trip at the end of June and will be gone for 5 days and I can't find anyone to watch him while I am gone. So I thought about buying those self-feeding containers for food and water and placing them in his cage while I am gone. Can he survive buy eating and drinking from those containers for 5 days? I really don't want to cancel my trip, but I also don't want to pay $300 to have a bird sitter watch him for 5 days either.

    Isn't there a teen in the neighborhood and you can take your little guy to their home and pay the teen $10.00 a day. Someone who does baby sitting? The containers would most likely work and people have done it but what happens if he hurts himself somehow?
