I love my lovebird, but I wouldn't call him a good pet for a beginner. Lovebirds require a large amount of time to remain hand tamed and can be somewhat dominating. In essence they're a big parrot in a little parrot body. My little guy has a Napoleon complex a mile wide, but that's what gives him his remarkable personality. Lovebirds can be great companions and each and every one has its own unique personality.

The photo courtesy of Mona Warren is a hybrid of a peach-faced and one of the eye-rings species. Hybridizing between the various lovebird species does not occur in the wild in Africa and importing wild birds to the US has all but stopped. It is also not something that should be encouraged in US aviculture. That's not to say that a hybrid lovebird does not deserve a loving, caring pet home, or that a hybrid lovebird will not make for a wonderful companion.

Just got a lovebird, it's so loud! It's sweet and easy to hold once she is on your finger, but bites at times. I still need to get a playground outside of the cage to keep her occupied.

Hello everybody. I am Ikram Toor from Pakistan. I have 16 pairs of green fishers and one pair of Lutino. We (me, my wife, and kids) enjoy with these very pretty members of our family.

NO NO NO... Sorry, but don't buy your bird a mirror. If you cannot afford to spend enough time (for a lovebird, at least 2 to 3 hours a day) with him or her, do not buy them! A mirror will make it so that a single lovebird will eventually become anti-social to you, his companion. The birds in the mirror become his companions and you will lose his trust little by little until he becomes just another wild lovebird! This is the same with ANY bird, not just lovebirds. If you want them to love you, keep mirrors away unless you are supervising with it and playing with them!

i have kept and bred most types of lovebirds for many years, mainly without problems. the best pair by far has been a pair of peachfaced, which i paired myself. i can never be sure as to what colour chicks the. will produce! i have had normals, lutinos, blues, greys and one total albino! they do have a flight to themselves, whilst all my other lovebirds are bred in the collony system. all birds are kept outside all year round, inside accomodation is provided in winter, but the birds prefer to stay outside, and (occassionly bread)! all birds are fed on mormal seed mix, plus veg & fruit.

I bought my first lovebird yesterday. I picked him/her out of a small flock and was told that she might be nippy, as he/she was more used to contact with fellow birds rather than human contact. However, I have had absolutely no problems with him/her so far. Taylor rides around on my shoulder, runs from my boyfriend to the other shoulder, etc. Taylor is really rather friendly; I taught him/her to step up in about five minutes. She's still a bit hesitant, but is improving rapidly. She loves her swing, ladder, and a dangling ring toy, which she puts herself through in circles to play with. She is an absolute joy and is very active and it is fascinating to watch her play.

Hi my name is Amanda. I recently purchased a Peach Faced Lovebird. I bought him hand trained. He is very unique in his own little way. His name is Yoshi! We are working on for him not to bite, he doesnt bite hard but still it would be nice to train him not to nibble at all. He loves to sit on his perch on top of his cage and walk around with me while I am doing stuff around the house. He is also a really big kisser, loves to give kisses. I am very glad I have purchased him. The purpose of getting one was for University to give me some company while away from home.
