Hi I have a blue female black masked lovebird who is sitting on 8 eggs but the father has died. Will she still incubate the eggs til they hatch and care for the little babies by herself or should I get another male? My male that died was a green black masked lovebird pure breed, both are pure breeds.

My earliest memory was of my mom bringing home a baby peach faced lovebird. I am now 20 and he is 18 and we grew up together. He is getting old now- blind in one eye and yellowing of his green feathers- but if it weren't for that I wouldn't notice. He is just as spunky and fun as he always was. He has been the most wonderful companion I could ever have! He is so cuddly, funny, and friendly. He is very playful and has many hilarious quirks. He is not really loud, will cuddle for hours (he is a velcro bird), and thinks he owns the place since he is allowed free flight in the house. He gets along well with all the other pets we've had throughout his life (he has befriended two dogs, a guinea pig, an amazon parrot, parakeets, and even had a mate of his own when he was younger).I recommend a peach face loverbird for any beginning or experienced bird owner who is looking for loving companion.

I have a female Fischers Lovebird and she is a great bird. Always willing to come out of her cage and sit on my shoulder all day. She goes with me everywhere i go, stores, pet smart, and on all my erands. She is gender bias and will only let Men handle her and finds Women as threats, biting them packing a powerful bite in her small beak. There great birds when kept alone and find you as the mate. As you become her mate for life. If seperated from you, she will begin to deteriorate due to the fact she wont look to another person as her mate, as she looked to you.

... to trim wings, it should only be the first seven trimmed to the secondary feathers OR if the bird has weak wings or it is a baby give it a baby cut which is the first five cut in half or to the secondary feathers depending on the strength of the birds wings and if your not sure take too little, you can always cut more. PLEASE WATCH OUT FOR BLOOD FEATHERS. Trimming in this manner, you can't tell if the wings are trimmed and this results in less feather breaking. Or go to your local pet store, they should do it for free. Ask if they do it this way, if not go else where... THANK YOU For your time.

To Debbie Shook... It is very normal for your bird to have red in its feathers... This kind of color mutation is called a red suffusion and is quite rare... You are very lucky to have this kind of color mutation... :-)

For debbie shock. What you have is an unidentified species of love bird. It is rare and unusual.

i juss recently received 2 love birds from a friend, a black masked lovebird (roughly 6 yrs) and a pastel one (roughly 3yrs).
My male, the pastel one, has apparently made my female mean in the past. I was trying to change the food earlier and my female bit me so she could get out.

I'm new with lovebirds and am practically clueless. PLEASE give some advice on how I can start to handle them without losing a finger or two. I have a myspace as well..

Hi there - this is the first time I see this website - I guess that is normal as it is the first time I did a search on the peach-faced Lovebird !
Well, what can I say ? other than a nice place to read up on these birds, I've missed out on the bird's diet and breeding nature. Perhaps I was too quick and missed out those sections.
Oh, I would like to tell you .... three weeks ago we had (what was then thought to be a visitor), a Peach-faced Lovebird, visit our outdoor bird-seed tray.
At first we thought he had escaped from someone's aviary in the area, but this is not so, as there is no signs of a chirp (or any other sound that comes from this type of bird), in the neighbourhood. He's become quite at home here, and we've added some sunflower seeds to the seed tray. He seems to eat them whole as there are no signs of empty shells/husks. I was thinking of catching it and taking it to a petshop where they would place it with other Peach-faced Love birds, but I've changed my mind, as it seems quite happy and it knows where it's "bread is buttered" !
It will dissappear for short spells, and before you can say the word Lovebird, it's back.
We have the Pintail Whydah bird nesting in the big dense tree in our backyard, and as agressive as this little male is, he's become content with the Lovebird, and often they eat side-by-side on the seed tray without any aggresiveness or animosity.
We've grown aware of the Lovebird's presence, so much so, that we would miss him/her if it were to find a home elsewhere.
Your thoughts would be welcomed.

We acquired "Charlie" from my daughter's friend who had 2 to begin with. She gave the first away as the 2 birds were fighting all the time. She tried to keep "Charlie" but her 3 year old daughter was afraid of "him" so that is how we acquired the bird. I have other breeds of birds at home and didn't give it a thought about bringing in a new one. From the start "Charlie" would escape the cage and fly about the room. I have had to wire shut the doors to keep "Charlie" in while I am not at home. Once home "Charlie" gets to come out to fly about. The biggest problem is the biting! Everyone is afraid of "Charlie" landing on them because of the biting. Now "Charlie" has laid 4 eggs so she is definitely not a "Charlie" and I have no way of knowing if they are furtile or not as I have no idea how long the sperm stays alive before the female lays her eggs. She is extremely protective of the eggs and will not leave them. We have had to feed her near the nest and put the water near her as she will not leave her eggs. If they are not fertile how do we go about getting them away from her???

We just lost our little girl. We had her for eight years and she got sick. We took her to ITHICA M.Y. Cornell University Hospital. She died there and we are still just devastated. She was like our kid. We did everything with her and loved the devil out of her. Her name was Baby Bird.
