Size: Love birds range in length from 5 12 to 6 12 inches, depending on the type and quality of the bird. They will be between 45 and 60 grams in weight. Baby love birds are around the same size as adults; they may add a little weight and mass as they age, but this is little. What you see is exactly what you get!
Color: Love birds come in a variety of vibrant hues. Whatever your favorite hue is, there’s certainly a mutation for it! Greens, blues, yellows, purples, oranges, and whites may be seen in a variety of colors and combinations on love birds.
Noise Level: In comparison to other birds, love birds are not very noisy. However, keep in mind that noise is a relative element, and what sounds loud to one person may not be loud to another. Their voices are very high pitched. Please keep this in mind if you live in an apartment with sensitive neighbors.
Cage Requirements: For a pet love bird, a cage with dimensions of at least 16 x 16 x 24 is preferred. There should be enough space to accommodate at least two perches, two toys, and three dishes (one for water, one for seed/pellet diet, and one for fresh meals), as well as enough space for the bird to flap its wings freely. The cage bars should be around 12 inches apart. Bars that are too widely apart will be difficult for the bird to grasp and climb around.
Extras: A portable play gym is a fantastic addition! A love bird may be taught to remain on this gym regardless of where it is placed, allowing you a lot of freedom. A compact travel carrier is also recommended. This will come in useful while visiting your pet love bird, traveling, or going to the vet.
Pet suitability: Love birds may make adorable pets. Before selecting to get a pet love bird, be sure to do as much research as possible! Love birds, like every other species of parrot, have advantages and disadvantages. Understand what you’re getting into and what you’re agreeing to. Because love birds may live for 15 to 20 years, acquiring one is a long-term commitment.
Every love bird has its unique personality, however there are several features that are shared by most love birds.
- Active and vivacious. When living with a love bird, there is continual motion and action. They are also not scared of other people’s movement or activities. Love birds often fit neatly into the picture in hectic families. A pet love bird may have a great time riding about on your shoulder while you go about your daily activities and domestic tasks. Love birds are not particularly cuddly since they can seldom hold still for lengthy periods of time. Cuddles with a pet love bird are most likely to occur late at night, when the bird is sleepy and ready for bed. Because they can keep up with this level of activity, responsible youngsters make excellent love bird owners.
- Curiosity killed the cat… or the love bird? Lovebirds are incredibly curious. They are virtually fearless and insist on discovering anything new. This may be both a positive and negative quality. Pet love birds are eager to meet new people and explore new places with their owners. They seldom become one-person birds if they are thoroughly socialized. While they may prefer one individual, they are also happy to play with others. Simultaneously, several love birds have died while researching perilous circumstances (including birds much larger than themselves).
- Love birds have their own minds, and they will let you know! If a love bird decides it wants to accomplish something, it will do all in its ability to achieve it. Distracting a love bird who is focused on an activity or an item might be difficult. Patience and perseverance are essential. Love birds, on the other hand, seldom need continual care from their owners. Love birds will gladly play in their cage or on their play gym if they are given enough toys to keep their wits engaged.
- Dominating, domineering, and commanding. Did I also mention bossy? Love birds are flock birds in the wild. Their position in the flock must be established and maintained. Young love birds must also establish their position in the flock, whether it is made up of people or other birds. This may be a difficult moment for pet owners. A baby lovebird is likely to dispute authority in order to identify what function it will play in the flock. A pet love bird owner must be able to retain their position as flock leader quietly but strongly. Once the love bird recognizes their place in the group, they will not often dispute authority.
- Intelligent than the typical bear! Love birds are incredibly clever species, despite their little size. They may learn to imitate typical home sounds such as the microwave beep. They may also learn to mimic other birds’ noises. Very few love birds will learn to communicate; if you want a talking pet, a love bird is not a smart option. They do have the ability to observe, and many love birds have learnt to release themselves out of their cages or drop their food bowls in order to get more food or treats. A love bird may be potty-trained with care. This method is very handy for pet owners.
- No-nonsense, no-guess feelings. You’ll know whether your pet love bird is content. If he want to be allowed out of his cage, you will be informed. You will be alerted if he is in a bad mood and wants to be left alone. If he is upset with you or has a grudge against you, you will almost definitely be the first to know. Love birds do not conceal their feelings from their owners. A pet love bird will be completely honest with you.
A well-socialized, hand-fed love bird may make an excellent pet. Only you can judge if this species would fit into your family and lifestyle, as with any pet bird. Consider the responsibilities that come with caring for a pet. It’s a time-consuming, patience-testing, yet heartwarming adventure. In my view, it was definitely worth the effort!
