Pet Lovebirds


Lovebirds have the potential to make great pets for those who have the patience and time required of any parrot species. Because of their inclination to bond, they can form great long-term relationships with people.

Provided with space, toys, and love, lovebirds become cherished companions to those who own them. They love to snuggle and can often preen their favorite people.

Like with any other pet, it is essential that one makes sure the birds that one is about to buy were bred in captivity, and not wild caught. Besides conservational and ethical reasons, wild caught animals are more likely to get sick and to die. Lovebirds, especially when kept individually or brought up hand-fed, make very good pets. Lovebirds can be very interactive with humans, and when comfortable around humans, will willingly perch on a human's fingers or shoulders. Lovebirds rarely talk, but there is a chance they may learn to mimic human speech if taught to at a young age. It's important to remember to never expect any bird to talk. If your bird talks, consider it a bonus.

Like all parrots, they need to be well socialized and taken care of.
