    If the eggs are fertile, all five should hatch.

    how will i know if a love birds fischers is 5 or 6 years old?
  • Clarice Brough - 2014-06-27
    The age of birds is almost impossible to determine, other than as juveniles. Your best bet is to ask the person you got them from what their hatch date was.

Who builds the nest, the male or the female fisher?

    I am really not sure. But they usually use 'pre-built' nests (trees, boxes, etc.) and so they may not put much effort into making their own nests. The mothers are usually the ones who sit on the nest and raise the young, so I would think they would probably do a lot of the nest building if there is any.

Hello dear Lovebird lovers, I am Safin from Daka, Bangladesh very new in this world. I have just bought 8 pairs of lovebirds and kept them in the balcony cage. I am not sure those are equal numbers of male and female .. those are only 2 months old. I am seeking for advise/ suggestion from any Bangladeshi because I am totally new in this lovely club

    There is no guarantee that boys will pick gals and gals will pick boys - even in the wild but most of the time - that is what happens.  As the birds pair up - which they will start doing in a month or so - remove that pair to their own cage with nest box.  You will see a pair sit close together, possibly preen each other, look for a private place to be.  There will be some pushing around a little till each one finds the one they want but that is OK.  So when you see a pair that is acting like a pair - move that pair out.  The problem is you have 16 birds that aren't easily distinguished one from the other.  You may want to get a couple of colored markers and actually mark the birds.  bird one  black mark over right eye, bird two black mark over left eye, bird three, black mark center forehead, bird four, black mark on back, bird five black mark on chest --  something like that.  So when you see a consistent pair (the one with the black mark on chest and the one with black markover right eye) you will be able to round them up.  Otherwise as soon as you go to move the pair - they will all start flying around and you will lose track of the pair.  It is just easier to mark them.  Then hope for the best.

Hello Anybody who knows about lovebirds..
We got two love birds from our grandfather in Miami. They were 6 altogether in a cage and he gave us two out of the six because our grandma passed and he can't take care of them. One of them died this morning and we were wondering is it because we separated them from the others? or they are not use to us? We have one more but we worry that it to will die if we don't find out what it needs.. Please help Thank you

    It is doubtful the little fella died because he was separated from the others - especially since he had a friend. Could be age, or possibly he really stressed, or a combination. Maybe just his time. Watch the other little one and make sure eating, poop is OK and activity level is OK. They are very social creatures so might need a second lovebird or lots of human attention.

How can we know that a fischer love bird is ready to lay eggs?

    Minimum breeding age is about 10 months but it is better to wait until they are 12 or 13 months. The maximum age is 5-6 years old (the age at which they should be retired from breeding).

Are small clay pots enough for breeding homes of fischer love birds?

Click For Replies (1)
  • Clarice Brough - 2011-03-24
    The pots need to be sized with the birds size in mind. If they can fit in it comfortably. The standard sizes of lovebird nesting boxes is 8x8x8 inches or 10x10x6 inches. If you have more than one nesting box, they should all be the same size. You can find more information about this at Lovebird Breeding. Good Luck!

I have a lutino Fischer's lovebird and I don't know what gender it is. My lovebird is always willing to bite and makes a lot of noise no matter what I do. It is up in the middle of the night and will not stop playing on its swing. I've tried taking the swing out but my lovebird just starts to make noise and bites me. If you have any advice at all I will appreciate it if you leave it as a reply to my comment.
