I got little Albie about a week and a half ago during his weening period. He accepts pellet, nibbles on seed, plays in the sink, and is a joy to have around. He's about 9 weeks old. He steps up readily and perches on my shoulder - didn't have to work on that with him. He loves to hide in my shirt and burrows in my armpit. He's very affectionate and enjoyes preening my facial hair. It's my first bird and I love him and the experience very much.

My little Dutch Blue is named Kiwi. She talks! I have had her since she was just 6 or 7 weeks old. Bought her from a breeder and finished hand feeding. She is single and I work at home so she can be out and with me at the computer whenever we want to socialize. She is as gentle as a lamb and is currently on a few eggs despite my efforts to avoid this. She allows me to feed her on the nest small bites of nuts, fresh veggies and bits of cheese from my fingers. She loves to crawl up my sweatshirt sleeve and come out the neck while saying "Kiwi, Kiwi, Kiwi". Amazingly, she doesn't scream or shriek at all. I have hand raised exotic birds for 28 years and this little girl is quite exceptional. I believe any animal is affected by the owner and recommend this type of pet to one who is patient and gentle. Quiet surroundings help and other people must not tease the little guys either. I hope Kiwi is around for 20 years or more.

I have a young fisher's lovebird, but she will not tame for me. I've worked with many birds and she is the only one that has been a problem.

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.
