Back again. Baby number 2 is out of nest, unfortunately it has a crooked leg, hence its new name "Pegleg". he seems to not be able to perch and has spent the day latched to side of cage claws and beak. I have taken him out into a little cage. Was this the right thing to do?

Hi, I have a pair named Rosie and Claude who have had two chicks, one is out the other just starting. From my observations it is Claude who is continually building and rebuilding the nest. He also predominantly tends to the chicks too.
I have just read that the female usually does all this, but my girl goes out of her way to pull all the twigs out of his back feathers. I have to say he gets really mad. Has anyone got a similar story?

Can peach faced lovebirds talk? And how do I train it to talk if so.

    It is very rare when you do find one that talks. My suggestion is to read a book, listen to music or, watch t. V. Still like i said. . . It is rare. If you do have one that really talks instead of whistles, i would like to hear about it! I have two peach faced love birds and are sweeties. I was eating a hamburger and the male said to the female, "don't you know that she's hungry! ? " i was howling with laughter. He whistled it but, it was easy to find out what he said.

    It is possible to get lovebirds to speak, although their vocabulary will be quite small. It is nearly impossible to teach a lovebird any words if it is paired up or in a small flock, so if you are able to provide the intense amount of attention a single lovebird requires, then you would be more likely to get it to speak. Training a bird to speak is not much different than training a toddler. It involves clarity, repetition, and consistency. Pick a word or two-word phrase, ideally beginning or ending with "hard" letters like D, T, K, or P. Use that word every time you do something, like replace food or put the bird back in the cage. With loads of patience, you will hear your lovebird pronouncing words in their own trills; unless you pay close attention, it sounds like regular chirping. Their speech will never be as clear or broad as that of a large parrot.

    They sorta can. I taught my peach face love bird Peachie to say her name she doesn't speak it but chirps the syllables.

    I have three lovebirds. One lutino, female, and one male and female peachface. I got them from the 2nd home that did not want them anymore. My female peachface i think is the daughter of the other two (lucy lu)
    she only has one leg. . . I think the lutino did it before i got them. Anyway, lucy has her snuggle nest hanging on the outside of mama and dads cage. She interacts with the male all the time and she does her flyover me, several times a day. My lutino, mama, is very aggressive, she is soooo jealous of lucy. I have had them now for about 1-2 years. Mama and dad have blessed me with 2 babies, both looked peachfaced and green. She laid more eggs but seemed to only want to raise the 2? I did give them to someone. This is not unusual for female birds. They have instinct to breed. I have had parakeets get very aggressive when nesting. Mama is pulling out some feathers on her side. I have never in 20 yrs. Had a bird do this! Should i put the nest box in the cage or what can i do to stop it!

With the eyes, which shape of eyes do the males have and which shape do the females have. Or do the shape of the eyes actually have anything to do with determining the sex of a lovebird? We have 2 with circle shape and one with almond shape.

I have two lovebirds, a peach-faced and (what I think is an orange faced lovebird). However now I’m not so sure it is an orange faced lovebird. I suspect it might be a lutino Fischer’s lovebird. How can I tell the difference?


Regards,

Sara

I own a peachface male about a year old. He started to molt and has not stopped losing feathers. While he acts healthy he's not looking too good right now. His diet is probably not what it should be, but he doesn't eat the veggies and fruit when I put it in the cage. He also scratches a lot and I'm wondering if he has lice or something that's contributing to the problem. Because of his poor diet I've been using a vitamin supplement. Is there a product to deal with a possible infestation?

I just recently got a Black Masked love bird. His mate died a few years ago and the previous owners also owned a Jenday Conure (which came with this lovebird), and they've paired up just fine. The Conure has no problems but the lovebird is incredibly hand/people shy and antisocial. His feathers are also a grey color, should I be worried? And what is a way to bring him out of his shell somewhat? I do have to be cautious though, the Conure is extremely protective of his little buddy..
