My husband just bought me a pair of peach faced lovebirds for my birthday. He asked for a male and female. I'm not sure of their age, but how can i tell when they're ready for nesting? We bought asoft 4x4 area that they can can hang out in. I don't believe it's a suitable nesting box. From what I'm reading, it says to buy 2 simialr nesting boxes...one for sleeping and one for nesting. They use the sof furry one for sleeping, so can i just buy another box (not the same kind) for nesting? And being that they both have to be placed high in the cage, how do i keep the babies safe once they're born? I don't want them to fal and get hurt.

    They are ready at six months, but you should wait until they are one year old. Let me know if you need help setting them up for breeding.

My peach faced lovebird just passed away and now I'm looking at buying a Dutch Blue or the Fischer.. I have only had one love bird at a time, but was considering buying a pair. Can anyone tell me if I get a pair, will they still be as affectionate and friendly towards me as One bird has been? My last bird Sonny was very close to me, he was 'my' bird. Thanks

I've had a male lutino for 3 years. About 2 weeks ago I rescued a male blue and a female lutino from the back of a horse trailer at a flea market.
The male blue has bald patches around neck and under wings and on belly.
He sits with ruffled feathers and has started a very odd behaviour of stuffing seed shells into his feathers. Other than this, he eats well, bathes, moves around normal, etc. Any suggestions as to what is wrong with him?
Also, I want to start them on a pellet diet but don't know which one to choose. I especially want a good one for him to get him healthy again.

    I've got news for you, sunbug. Your bird is a female! I just discovered this myself. I adopted my bird-friend lola about 2 months ago from a neighbor. She had been in the cage most of 5 years. I let her out, treat her to nice seeds, apple, banana and whisper sweet nothings to her! She also started stuffing papers and twigs into her feathers, on her back. She has just laid an egg! And there are more to come, by the looks of it! Good luck!

    We have a lovebird and we have noticed that she is also stuffing seed shells into her feathers. Does anyone know why they do this?

    Nesting! They are gathering materials for the nest. Do you have children? If so, you must remember the 'nesting' phase where you frantically gather, store, make sure everything is right for your baby to be!

I have had two lovebirds for almost two years..they recently started getting into some really bad fights, and yesterday the male was sounded so badly that he died. Should I get another one right away, or will she accept another male? Right now she is running around the cage looking for him and calling for him. I talk to her with whistles and kisses, and she comes up and talks to me, but I canot handle her...

    Lovebirds do get lonely and often do better in pairs. What you could do is get another one and keep it in a separate cage. Put the cages next to each other so that they can get to know each other. This way they would each have a companion but you wouldn't have to worry about them getting into physical fights. Eventually you could try putting them together.

    hi..I had that problem. might be that the humidity in the nest is not high enough for the eggs..also i found that lutinos did not breed as readily as other mutations..maybe just bad luck!
