The lutino lovebird is the most wonderful, charming, lovable, engaging and amazing pet you could ever have! Our darling little one, "Baby", gave my husband & I more happiness and love than we could ever have imagined. She was such a little character! When she left us on July 31, 2005 she was 17 years and 7 months old! We are very thankful to have had her share our lives for so long and would give anything to have her back with us again.

    My beautiful lutino lovebird died 3 days ago. I am heart broken. He lived with me for 13 years, almost 14 and I know that nothing will replace him in my heart. I too would give anything to have him back with me again..... Oh...... how much I miss him! He had all the qualities that you mention that yours had, He died on Jun 9, 2010 and my house and my heart feels empty, I love Sunny soooooo much ! He was the love of my life.

    I have a 14 year old lovebird who is sleeping a lot and has a decreased appetite... we're doing our best, but would love to hear from someone with experience caring for an elderly lovebird what some comforting things we could provide for Rainbow (our baby) as he enters his golden years. He's given us so much love over the years and I want to make sure we give him the best of everything for the rest of his life.

How could I know that my lutino lovebirds are ready for breeding?

I have heard that if a true lutino lovebird breeds with a different type of lovebird, their offspring will be sterile. Is this true?

My Australian cinnamon lovebirds [orange faced] have laid 3 eggs 25 days ago. Why r they not hatching the eggs, but the hen incubates the eggs everyday?

Just got a lovebird, it's so loud! It's sweet and easy to hold once she is on your finger, but bites at times. I still need to get a playground outside of the cage to keep her occupied.

Our lutino, Beaker, was hand raised in 1990. He's very sweet and beautiful. He has been known to chew the edges off an expensive paper lampshade and also the gilt off an antique picture frame! After that, we learned our lesson and keep his wings slightly clipped so he will stay on our shoulder. He goes outside with us, loves the garden dirt, goes nuts for fresh raspberries, and screeches shrilly at other birds. He becomes very agitated if we walk away from him. While in the care of a friend, he watched their female bird shred paper for her nest. Now his favorite pasttime is shredding paper, in cage or out! He also lifts the moveable doors on his cage and lets them smash down. This he does over and over w/o giving up as his signal that he wants to come out. It can become quite annoying!
One thing: the lovebird DOES NEED COMPANIONSHIP!! He will get sick w/o it; we learned this the hard way. He became neurotic and began chewing his back end, pulling out the feathers until he was bald and raw! We had to love him back to health and now make a point of always touching him and letting him out on our shoulder. We wear a towel clipped with a clothespin to keep our shirt clean, and after he has been loved, he nestles in our neck or under our chin. While on our shoulder he eats our human food and takes frequent drinks of water. He loves a water bath and takes one every day with his cool, fresh water.
