Love your Lovebirds and feel its fierce loyalty and affection

By Annphilip Subscribe to RSS | January 6th 2012 | Views:

Do you want to avoid your loneliness? The best way to share your emotions and secrets is with those little cute birds named Lovebirds. It’s very much sure that the love you give to these birds will be returned above your expectations. Since they can mimic sounds and words, everyone will have a nice play time with these lovely birds.

It’s really interesting to see these birds that come in diverse colors. Among the different species found in the nature, the only three that can be kept as pets are The Peach faced lovebird, The Fischer’s Lovebird, and the Masked Lovebird. Other species include the Red-Faced Lovebird, the Masked Lovebird, the Nyasa Lovebird, and the Peachfaced Lovebird.

These birds are known for its fierce loyalty and affection. In jungles these birds can be seen in flocks. As they are very sociable, once we earn their affection, the same fierce loyalty will continue till we have friendship with them. If you rear only a single parrot then make sure you give ample time and affection to that bird, otherwise it will feel lonely. If you are planning to get a lovebird, then you should ask yourself whether you want that bird as a good friend or just want to watch a group of birds for the sake of entertainment. By owning these decorative birds the liveliness of your house will increase and their chirping sounds and affection filled activities will make you more energetic. Their ability to learn tricks is really astonishing.

Unlike human beings, lovebirds find it difficult to change their loyalties towards its companion or its owners. Moreover, if the pocket sized bird is not attached to a person in a really emotional way, then it won’t care about learning tit-bits from that person. It’s very rare to get a creature like this who will maintain loyalty to its mate and owner.

Can you identity your male and female lovebird from the group you have in your cage. No, it’s very difficult to sex these birds as they are not sexually dimorphic. But some subtle differences are there and we can take up that method to sex love birds. Among the small parrots, females will have a small head and a comparatively large body size. Again, females will have a square tail while males have rounded tails. Some experienced breeders can very well identify them by feeling their pelvic bones, though it’s not a proper method. Still you are confused about its sex then go for a DNA sexing service. Most commonly available DNS sexing services are feather and blood tests.

Though lovebirds prefer partners for its healthy existence, it’s not mandatory for them to pair up with their opposite sex itself. Sometimes the same sex birds will pair up and mate and this will result in infertile eggs. So it’s the responsibility of breeders to find about such pairing and correcting it. Love birds become sexually mature when they are about 8 months old and they can lay 4 to 6 eggs at a time. The female bird will brood on the eggs and the young chicks will leave the nest within 38-50 days.

Compared to other bird varieties, lovebirds are fairly expensive. So you can own it from your nearest pet shop as early as possible and start training it. It’s really interesting to watch programs and documentaries related to rare and unusual birds, its behaviors, nesting activities etc. in our home digital television connected with service from providers like Dish TV packages.

A lovebird in a cage will love toys of all kinds like swings, ladders and mirrors. But when these flamboyant active birds come out the cage, they will enjoy the freedom and sky will be the only limit for them.
