My comment is that have for lovebirds mother father son and daughter. I raised them all from young but one of the birds (daughter) has a scab on her wing and i have been try to cure with no success. I thought it was because of fighting at first but know i'm not so sure. What can i do about this problem i love this bird a lot she is very attached to me and can't fly very well because of this. Is there any kind of medication i can use for this problem?

    I think you need to figure out what the 'scab' is.  Sounds like it might be a broken blood feather in which case it looks like a scab, feels like a scab but is a broken blood feather that won't go away and will need to ber pulled out.  I am not sure but no reason a scab should just remain - but broken blood feather seems to stay embedded forever.  It also bothers them so they wouldn't fly and they possibly pick at it.  If you think a scab - possibly you can soak the scab in a water peroxide solution and maybe it will just come off.  At least you would be able to see what it was.  How about a vet around you?

Hey guys I just wanted to know if it is possible to keep a pair of masked lovebirds and a pair of fischers lovebirds in the same cage? Would that be a problem when either one of the pair is laying eggs?

    I had two lovebirds that were of the same family. They were two years old. Someone came to my house yesterday to trim their nails and cut one of them and it lost too much blood and died. :( I was wondering if I should get the one that is left a new friend. I feel so bad about what happened. And I know that the bird is looking for his friend. What do you think?

      Hey Karen I think that you should get your other lovebird a friend because I was reading in a lovebird book and it said "birds can die of loneliness"

      Three possibilities - they just aren't old enough yet and will need to practice more so the eggs are fertile.  You can place a perch directly in fron of the perch they are mating on that is about 1 inche in front and an inch higher than the one they normall use.  This way the female can stand on the one perch and hold onto the second perch with her beak when the male goes to mate.  Some times the males get a little to amorous and the females fall down.  Two, you have two females so the eggs are not fertile.  Three, they aren't incubating so eggs are not developing.  Let the female sit the eggs till bored with them or at least 15 days.

      I have also a pair of lutino and same problem, the eggs didn't hatch. its almost 5 months now that the eggs are still in the box, and i could not get it because some may say that they might be disturbed and will not lay eggs anymore. i think almost 15 eggs now more or less is inside the nest box. what shall i do with it?.. really need your answers regarding this. thanks.

      Lovebirds kept outdoors will generally breed in the spring. The Peachface is one of the hardier species and starts around mid-April, while some of the other species start later in May. However if kept indoors, they could breed year round but they do need a break,  producing about 3 clutches a year is safest.

      Sounds like yours isn't tame - right?  Possibly you are a little nervous as well.  Think about the size of that little bird and think about your size. That little feathered creature possibly thinks you are godzilla so the first thing is to get it so he is not quite so afraid of you.  Talking to him, being around him is a start. Try and feed him treats with your hand SLOWLY - initially just put the treat in his food cup. Cheerios are good for this. His cage probably isn't huge so I would take the little fella and his cage into a small room - bathrrom, laundry room etc.  You don't want him flying around where you have to chase him.  Just set the cage down on the floor and sit down on the floor and again talk to him, try and feed the cheerios and just keep introducing yourself via talking.  Give both of you some time to adjust.  Eventually he will just come around.  You might want to pick up a book on taming also.

    I am a new owner of my peachface bird that was found outside about a year ago. The bird has become very aggessive with me, but seems to like my husband. She works at trying to bite my fingers. How can I calm her down and get her to eat a better diet of fruits and veg. She will not touch it.

      There are so many articles that say parrots should be given fruits and vweggies but some just won't eat them.  Dehydrated fruits and veggies (I am told) have the same nutritional value as fresh and Goldenfeast Fruits and Nuts Plus has dehydrated fruits and vegetables in it.   Check out Goldenfeast on Goggle as a wide variety of excellent products.  OK - second question is harder.  Your little feathered friend has seemingly chosen your husband as her mate and is very protective of him.  You can try and have her not be agressive toward you by doing things like giving her treats, talking to her and loudly grabbing her and saying  'NO HURT MAMA' or just 'NO'.  These things may or may not work.
