    There's no problem with giving the two more pastel colored ones away as well. The Peachfaced Lovebird has been heavily bred in captivity, and many  color mutations have been developed. But these color forms are just as hardy and wonderful as natural colored birds.

Hi! I have Lutino(female) Lovebird and a peach-faced(male). Last week my lutino lovebird laid eggs, unfortunately the peach-faced bird escape from the cage yesterday. The lutino bird is the only one incubating the eggs. Can the eggs be fertile if the lutino lovebird only incubates the eggs? Is possible that if I will buy a new male bird he will incubates the eggs?

    Whether the eggs are fertile or not depends on whether the male and female successfully mated. Possibly the eggs are fertile and will hatch with just the female - but possibly not. The first couple of clutches are usually free as it takes mom and dad a little time toknow what they are doing. Purchasing a male to help the female sit the eggs - it is very doubtful that will help the situation and he just might break the eggs. Let her sit them and if they are fertile possibly she will feed them. If not hatched in about 20 - 25 days just remove them. Otherwise let her sit them. You don't want her to attempt to lay another clutch right away. After a few weeks (whether the eggs hatch or not) would be a better time to bring in another male.

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.

    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.

Just to share with all lovebirds lovers ... My two Dutch Blue Lovebirds are very fund of apple, pear, and corns. They also like seeds from apple, melon, and pomegranate. Honeysuckle and Star Jasmine flowers are their snacks when in season. Since both of them are 'boys', they have their own favorite playmates, one is stuffed toy Garfield that has bright orange fur, the other is soft and juicy wheat grass bed ... :o) ... As long as they are happy, I'm fine with it.

    It may be that they are simply too young. Lovebirds need to be at least 10 months old, though 12 to 13 months is better. To learn more about this see All About Lovebirds: Breeding/Reproduction

    My lutino laid eggs but duration between 1st and 2nd was 5 days. It's the first time it laid an egg.

I have a lutino female lovebird and a peached face male lovebird. It seems the male is having a hard time mating with the female, what I mean is male peach faced lovebirds are smaller then lutino females right?

    In general female lovebirds are larger than males, no mater which type of lovebird they are. Different types of lovebirds can mate with each other, but it is possible your pair is having specific problems.

I have a Dutch blue lovebird male and a Lutino female. Every time my Lutino lays eggs they do not hatch.The has been happening for the past year or so.What could be the problem?

    It could be that you have 2 females, with one laying the eggs and the other acting 'male'. Lovebird eggs hatch in approximately 20-24 days, but if this is the case, then they are infertile and will end up looking a grey color.

I am thinking of buying a peach-faced lovebird. But I don't know if I should buy a male or a female? Which would be better for a first time bird owner ??

    The sex of a lovebird doesn't really make any difference. But it is very important that you buy two unless you have endless amounts of time to spend with a single bird, now and for the rest of its life. Lovebirds are so social that they need a constant companion. If you only want a single bird a parakeet or cockatiel would make a much better choice. If you only get one lovebird, the single bird will become depressed and despondent, possibly leading to its death.
