I just got 2 love birds, they are so funny and cute! They love to run around and are so much fun. Their names are Bonnie and Clyd because i got them from my Aunt and they would escape from their cage. They were hand raised and are the nicest, best pets. They have never bitten anyone, me or my family. they are awesome.
I just bought a peach faced love bird. She is still young but not young enough. She cherps her head off when i put my hand in the cage. If im in the room with her she hardly cherps, I leave and she freaks out until I come back. I notice her small attachment to me when im not in the room but cant understand why she cherps her head off like shes being attacted when i place my hand in her cage. I hope she'll warm up towards me soon. Maybe i should of bought a baby bird.

I bought two baby lovebirds, one wild coloring and one lutino, from a breeder at the stage of them just weaned.
They are very loud, ALL the time. I hear them outside from my second floor bedroom. I hear them every where on the first floor of the house and my house is fair sized.
They were very timid until they hit sexual maturity, which is relatively early, and then they became hormonal terrors. All of a sudden there was aggressive cage territorialness, fighting between the two, one was nesty and I couldn't get near her, and they both acted feral like they were used to captivity at all.
So, for four long years I've worked with them, almost in tears at times thinking that I may find a home for them, and finally in the last year they've come around.
There's only occasional biting when one is in a mood. And I have them separated now, cages side by side, after one tried to kill the other one. She tried to tear the other one's beak off and now she has a hole and wheezes when she gets her beak wet.
They like cuddling and will fall asleep if they crawl into your clothing and they get nice and warm. Mine like to stick out of the collar of my shirt like joeys.
It's a bit difficult to have them out of their cages like the larger parrots from long periods of time because they don't stay in one place, they go to the bathroom everywhere and you have to keep an eye on them all the time. They love to explore and they're very bold.
Lovebirds have been known to kill larger birds so keep that in mind if you have parrots or what not. They're also big toe biters.
I'm disappointed that they don't let me pet them but I'm working on that. They like kisses on their beaks and they'll lick your skin and groom your hair. Obviously only let them if you don't use chemicals and it's clean.
They should have as large as a cage as you can afford and have room for because they're both good flyer's and climbers. However, clipping their wings will curb aggressive behavior.
All in all, they're my babies, I accept them for who they are. It lights up their day just to come out and play with their mommy. And they always call to me to check in. I wouldn't trade them for the world!
I just got a love bird that was hand fed but was then sort of neglected by the pet store just becuase it was one of the cheaper birds. Its name is georgia and she is basically terrified of my hand. she chirps her battle cry every time i get near her. I am hoping she will warm up to me. All i have to say is try to buy the birds very young while they still need an affectionate companion!
My friend introduced me to these beautiful and colourful birds eighteen months ago and i started out by building a large aviary and introducing 4 pairs. these were all standard in colour apart from one lutino. i now have 23 bids, separating the young, and swapping young birds for fresh breeding birds occassionally. They have totally captivated me, they are so social and the young so tame and affectionate. I have had my downs too, losing birds. a whole clutch almost fledged just recently! My wife is even getting into them.I have nursed birds back to health, hand reared chicks that were struggling, taking great pleasure from this little colony i have built up. I want to expand now and try one of the other species!
I have 6 peach-face lovebirds. They all are fun to be with. I love listening to them sing. 1 pair is named Peaches and Cream, another pair is Bo and Hope, and the 3rd pair I haven't named yet. They aren't tamed butI do love them very much. They all talk to each other and they are all paired up.
We (my family) have a little peach-faced lovebird named Fuu. Fuu was bred in our aviary but one bird took a disliking to her so we brought her inside. (It was really nasty). We then tamed Fuu which was pretty difficult because Fuu was raised by lovebirds. but we did it and now we don't want Fuu to go back into the aviary like she was supposed to. Fuu was born May 5 2006. Its odd because we took Fuu out to the aviary for a day when she was older and she hated it so we bought her back inside where she's really happy. Fuu likes to tweet when sudden sounds are made and she likes the vaccuum cleaner.

We have a peach-faced lovebird named Romeo & what a lover! He truly lives up to his name. Even his avarian vet loves his personality! He has a wonderful personality & is a great companion! I don't think he realizes he's a bird! He loves taking a shower with my husband & if my husband is a bit lazy in the morning, Romeo will fly from the bathroom to Richard, landing on his chest, looking up at him & chirping, telling him it's time to shower! He wants to help with everything. Loves shredding magazines, mail and paper! We don't need a shredding machine! He loves aggrevating the Max, the Maltese, our dog! He says good night in Polish! Even tho he doesn't say anything else, he's very expressive! You always know what he wants. Romeo is 8 years old now! He loves taking naps with my husband. He lays down on his chest & prompts Richard to cup his hand over him & the sleep in the recliner for a couple hours daily! Romeo would love to play with our cats, but, of course, they are off limits! He shares equal time with both of us & we each have our special times with him! Romeo does certain things with me & other things with my husband. We are certainly his family (his flock) & we just love him! We're hoping we have many more happy years with him!
I have a sweet peach at home and she is tame annd adorable. she likes to ride on my shoulder around the house. She is very picky and only eats the seed mix but we're converting her to the pellet mix. we got her when she was just weaned so she makes a loving pet that I will always remember!
