I have a peach-faced named Maxine. I have had her for fifteen years(I'm not sure how old she was when I purchased her - it was in a pet
shop at the mall). I have read that the life span of a lovebird is 10-15 years, so she's doing very well. She has been a great companion. She loves to come out of her cage and fly around, and take baths. She only lets me handle her - not my husband or children! She's a joy to have around!!

I have had my peach faced lovebird for a year now. His name is Burd. He loves to ride my bike with me, watch T.V. and cuddle. I'm the only person he likes, and he flys at anyone that gets near me(but not anymore I got his wings clipped). He loves to play chase and hops along behind me. I want to get another lovebird but I don't want him to get jealous.

I have a three-year-old peachfaced lovebird named Ike, who is thought to be a catumbella or a catumbella hybrid by my vet and by the Parrot Club members. He looks very different from any other green peachface I've met, his colours are incredibly brilliant. The green is Flourescent and the red is the same red as a cherry tomato, and all over, not just on his forehead (where peachfaced tend to hve the darkest red). He had no "fading" of the red over his ear coverts at all. His toenails aren't as dark though, leading me to suspect he is a hybrid as light coloured toenails indicates a pied or split to ino bird and true catumbellas have never been known to be pied or ino.
Ike was parent-raised and tamed at about 5 months old. I never got the chance to meet his parents as he was previously owned (for a month!). He was fed only sunflowers, and I thought he was a pied, because he had so many yellow feathers (green feathers can turn yellow if the bird is on a poor diet). After converting him to pellets and veggies, he lost his pied markings. It didn't take me long to tame him at all, just over two weeks of insisting he cuddle with me! Now he's my baby boy and goes just about everywhere with me. He rarely bites (unless I'm not listening to him) and gets along great with other birds (unless they are larger than he is, then he wants to beat them up). I agree with the nicknames lovebirds have collected- "African Napoleon" and "feathered dragons"! They are very spunky and active little guys that demand your complete obedience! Lovebirds are very playful and need a big cage, Ike's cage is 2' x 2' by 3' and he uses every bit. I've recently trained him to wear a "bird harness" and he loves it! If I leave it within reach he will walk over it and look up at me as if saying "Well, aren't you gonna put it on?"
Also, lovebirds CAN talk! My little guy is quite the talker, though it isn't very clear. He says: "Hello!" "What cha doin'?" "Hi baby!" "Baby boy!" "Come here!" "Hey I-ike!" "What?" "Outoutoutoutout", "Want some" and "Be quiet"! He also meows like our cat and is a wonderful whistler.

I have a peachfaced lovebird. Her name is zoony. She is very fun to play with and loves being on my shoulder. I am trying to get my dogs to get along with the bird. Zoony is fun to be around. She is a pied so when she gets older she will turn more yellow. Zoony is one of the best pets!

The Bird Girl - 2006-04-17
I work at a petshop, and a couple of days ago my manager brought in a sick Blue-Masked lovebird. So I adopted it. I named him Spaz (not too sure if it's a male or a female), and took him to a doctor..but he didn't really know what was wrong, he just said that Spaz did seem sick because he wasn't fighting him. I've had lovebirds before, but I really hope he's going to be alright, because this bird is special. The first day, I would walk around with him on my shoulder, and I take him to work everyday. He doesn't bite, he doesn't try and fly away, and he loves giving me kisses (nibbling). I love him!

I brought home Carmelo 4 days ago from a breeder. She was very frightened for the first couple of days, but strangely opened up to me today! She followed me and my two chihuahuas around the room. She's a joy to watch. I just love her. That just goes to show how social and affectionate these little parrots can be with the right amount of patiance and devotion.
