    Lovebirds are not talkers. At least I have never heard of one that does.
  • Rajani Singh - 2013-10-28
    Yes they talk I have seen many videos on you tube.

I have a peach-faced lovebird that is over 20 years old. He's doing pretty well for an old guy -- he can't fly anymore but still like to be held and snuggled. Just wanted to share that lovebirds can indeed live to be over 20.

    This post is a couple of years after yours, and hope your lovebird is doing well for an old guy. I too have one around 17, and noticed that he is not flying quite as strong as the old days. May be his age as well! We have him checked regularly as well. Gave me comfort in your email. Thank you!

    If the eggs are fertile, all five should hatch.

Hi I would like to know if it is possible to mate a female blue masked with a green fischer and if the babies will reproduce later on? Thanks

    Yes, these are both eyering species so cross-breeding is definitely possible, and the young will also be fertile. Although the young are attractive birds their colors do tend to be duller and less striking than the pure forms of their parentage.

I have two female lutino peach face lovebirds. One lives with a regular male peach face. She recently got out of her cage and was out for a few days. Her body now has the same color of pink marks all down her back and body as the color of her head. It is all over the part that is normally yellow. What can be wrong? The other female, who is in a cage alone, is still perfectly normal. Any suggestions ? I thought maybe another bird pecked at her if she was on the side of their cage, but in attempting to find out what could be wrong, it appears as though there may be a disease such as this. She is acting fine, by the way...eating and drinking. I'll watch for your answer.

    I would look to see if she was injured as the discoloration sounds like it's from an external source.  Feathers will only change colors when a bird molts, then the old feathers fall out and are replaced with new. This takes a bit of time, and you can see the new feathers coming in. Feathers can change color somewhat with molts as they age, but I don't think that's what is going on. As long as she is eating and acting normal, and her stool is normal, she is probably okay.

Hi, This is Roy from India. Recently my Peach faced African love bird had laid 4 eggs. Out of that only 1 egg was successfully hatched. The baby bird is now almost 2 weeks old but it has developed Yellow feathers just like a Lutino. I am really really surprised as to how this happened . How a peach face give birth to lutino baby. Please help me in understanding this riddle. Thanks .

    I'm guesing an unintended accident of genetics, as the lutino lovebird is actually a mutation of the Peach Faced Lovebird.

    There is baby bird handfeeding formula, I've used Kaytee and it is great. However the parents are usually really good parents. It isn't usually necessary to hand feed the babies unless the parents are inexperienced and not able to do the job. To handfeed, there are many things that can go wrong. Besides having the right food, it takes a rigorous schedule and having an experienced person show how to do it is really important.

    Yeah kaytee is great. At rural king ohio (rko) you can get nozzles or syringes.

I have a Peach faced lovebird and she just laid three eggs but I don't have a male bird. Is the male bird the one that has to sit on the eggs or does she? Because she is not sitting on them.

    They usually lay 4 - 5 eggs and won't sit them until all the eggs are laid. The eggs are obviously infertile but don't just remove them. She will just lay more eggs and run into a possible calcium shortage. Let her sit the eggs if she wants for the 20 days or so and then just toss them out. But let her sit them for the 3 weeks if she wants.

    Both male and female. Male feeds female too. My female has 3 eggs too.

Who builds the nest, the male or the female fisher?

    I am really not sure. But they usually use 'pre-built' nests (trees, boxes, etc.) and so they may not put much effort into making their own nests. The mothers are usually the ones who sit on the nest and raise the young, so I would think they would probably do a lot of the nest building if there is any.
