    I have 4 lovebirds in a cage. They are 2 lutino and 2 peach face lovebirds
    They're all mature to have chicks, but they're not breeding at all. One of the females is getting along with the males, but they're not mating.
    And they fight with the other male..........
    So what do i do
    I think my birds have breeding problems
    please do respond back
    My email address is cpcpatteril@gmail.com

      I don't know about this community breeding of lovebirds. I was told you could set up a community aviary with white belly caiques and I did - about 12 feet wide and 10 feet long for 5 pairs. They all went into the aviary at a young age and the same time but somehow one of the males was killed. Just an experience but based on people who told me I could do a community breeding situation. I wouldn't do it again. I was also told that birds mate for life. I have come to the conclusion they might mate for life but they cheat like crazy. So two females or a male fighting over a male is normal - to me. So, my advice is to take the two pairs and split them up so they each have their own mate. None of this group stuff and that stops the fighting. I think when you get them separated, all will take care of itself. Write back and let me know if problems fom there.

    We just bought 2 Dutch Blue Lovebirds last Friday, 3/25/11 and overnight one of them died, the shop is giving us another but how am I assured that they will take to each other. These last 2 were cuddling on a perch when we covered them for the night and the remaining bird has been playful and very active since, we are showing him/her lots of attention but are still worried that the new one might not get along with the 1st bird. The shop owner told us he is giving us a bird from the same group, both of our birds were still babies when we got them, thanks Larry and Toni

      There is no guarantee that two love birds will love. However, it would be doubtful that they wouldn't learn to like each other, play together and grow to love each other. My concern here would be why the original love bird died. Could there have been agression? Is it possible that one of the two lovebirds were ill?

    I just got a love bird from where I work cause they were going to put her down because she was pulling her feathers out of her chest and has pulled her feathers out of one of her wings and has a sore on it now. She seems healthy. Is eating and is very active in her cage. Could you tell me what to do to get her feathers to grow back and have her stop pulling them out?

    Our lovebird is approaching her 18th year..
    At the age of two her partner started to pull out her feathers, she was almost bald when one morning the male was dead.. within 6 months all her plumage was back and she has been happy ever since..
    Like humans you need to make sure you have the right partner.

    Our male bird died and we don't know what to do about the female. Will she be OK alone or does she need a new partner? Will she accept a new partner? Please help soon! We don't know how old they are but we had them 4 yrs. + they had three clutches.
