    My Lutino does the same, but he has red eyes so I was wondering if the bright light hurts his eyes ? And he is very unsocial.

    Maybe your bird needs more attention...
    you must give him some time to play with you...
    I have a pair of birds, teddy and bunny bird.
    They are so playful..
    and all the things that mentioned above is their characteristics..
    I love them.

What makes the black masked lovebird bite? I have one and all he does is bite when you go near him. I cant put my hand in his cage. Also he rips his paper on the bottom of his cage and puts in his water

    Ripping up the paper and putting it in the water bowl is normal. Ripping up paper is a great activity and lots of fun for a parrot. Many parrots - especially the little guys don't like it when you put your hand in THEIR cage. It is scary. I have said before picture King Kong putting his hand over the top of you while you are in bed. Scary - so they bite. It is their safe place and they will frequently attack anything that comes into their safe place. Best thing to do is let him come out of the cage on his own - or bribe him out of the cage on his own and allow him sometime to realize he is not going to be hurt. Talk softly, give treats with your hand and then pick him up and hold close to your chest. You can hold the beak closed and he can't bite. Just hold him close and pet the top of his head.

What will happen if the black masked lovebird has no partner ? Will it die?

    No it is not going to die. We die from being old or getting sick - not from not having a partner. Lovebirds are very social creatures and they do fine with lots - really lots - of human attention and hold and pet. They do extremely well with another lovebird - which relieves some of the socialization and affection needs from the human. You can pair your fella up with another lovebird or give it lots of attnetion.

    No! In fact he may become very attached to you. He will start to bond with you more and more. I just had one he was the most wonderful friend and family I could have ever wished for!! He trained me to get him glasses of water and loved dinner time he was always curious and wanted to sample almost everything he loved cherries and grapes only I had to hold them for him while he sipped them up slowly!
    I think you will be pleasently surprised by having one bird you will really see his personality like you would never have before.

    Hi, don't stress my partner saved a black masked lovebird (our Harry) about 6 months ago. We took him to the vet as the other birds who attacked him made quite a mess of him. We estimated his age at about 8 weeks old at that stage. He is now the social butterfly. He interacts with all our friends but he has become very dominant and protective of me! He is very happy and well adjusted (that took several weeks). I don't think he would appreciate us bringing in another bird as he would probably view it as competition as he soaks up all the attention and loves it. Just be patient and you will find you have a new best friend.

Hey I have just got two new love birds. One is blue and other is violet and they freak out when ever I walk near the cage. I've been trying to calm them by talking to them lots and puting my hand in the cage ... What else can I do? =)

    Hi, what you already are doing I did with mine. So my suggestion is to keep on with that and you'll soon see some diffrence. But another thing I did was to open the cage and let them out A LOT like all the time and let them see what you're up to. And let them listening to U tube clips with other lovebirds, that usally triggers them. Hope this helps a little bit!

I adopted a Dutch Blue LoveBird when he was four weeks old and from hand feeding we built a strong bond, and then he built a strong bond with my Sun Conure too. My lovebird was amazing and so happy all the time, all he wanted to do was play and whenever I would sit in my recliner and watch tv he would sit on my stomach and just talk to me four hours. It's like he thought we talked the same language, which we kinda did to a point. I started understanding him alot more as tme went on. That lovebird was amazing and ever since he died its like a open hole or wound always there, he was so playful and fun its lonely without him and my sunconure is lonely at night now. I have a cockatial who gets along with the conure but she loves sleeping alone. The lovebird and sunconure cuddled everynight together. Anyways I never had my lovebird pluck any of its feathers like I see some of you people are mentioning. He was really happy and amazing and I would recomend a Lovebird to anyone who wants a little bird with big personality and that will love you.

    Hi Michael,
    I feel your pain, my Dutch Blue died last week after our 17 year friendship. We are all devastated as are my other birds who seem to be in mourning. My African Gray would always call out for our little Bing when she wasn't in sight but hasn't uttered her name since she passed over the rainbow. I haven't removed the cage from the bird room yet for fear of the reaction of the others, including me. I loved that bird dearly and miss her terribly, what a personality!
    Bob

    Sometimes things just die much younger than expected whether a parrot, a pup or a human. It is sad. Could have been a genetic defect, or he could have gotten into something toxic. I am sorry but it could happen for absolutely no reason at all.

    I have heard that some can speak a few words like pretty baby and hello. It all just depends but lovebirds in general are not great talkers.

I think they are a female and a male coz I saw on of them hoping on the back of the other and having sex it layed 5 eggs today. I found two on the bottom of the cage and I put them back and it sit on them I did the right thing or what I think they fell of the nesting box or did she put them out n y ??

    Yes, you did the right thing. Frequently a young inexperienced female will lay the eggs 'off the perch'. In other words, she thinks she has to go to the bathroom but instead an egg is laid. Sometimes they just don't know where to lay them and will do something like lay the egg in their food bowl. Just put them in the nest for them and they will get the hang of it.
  • milad zurub - 2012-01-12
    I have another cupel they layed 5 eggs and only one hatched it has been 3 days now might the others might hatch or no they all hatch at the same day ?? 10 x a lot 4 your help can I get your e-maile or facebook :D 10x a lot milo-zurub@hotmail.com mu face.. And e-mail

    Hi I have a set of love birds one green/ red the other yellow blue the female laid 3 eggs I'm not sure how many they lay we have been told it takes them 14 days from the day she laid them. They could hatch if there good eggs. She is in her own cage with her eggs the mate is next to her in another large cage they seem to be fine they are chirping like crazy i would like to know how long to keep the babys with the mother and should they be put in the same large cage together once there ready to be moved. Also how can we tell if they are females and male when they are small like that i would appreceate any info on love birds you may have yours truly heather

If I wana hand feed my babys at what hours should I feed them ?? Do I have to feed them @ night ?

  • Charlie Roche - 2012-01-28
    I would wait till they open their eyes :-) about ten days old or even fifteen days old. You would be feeding them about every four hours or when the crop is empty. Your last feeding would be before you went to bed and then again as soon as you get up but not greater than six to seven hours initially.
