If you’re looking for a new feathered friend, then you might want to consider a lovebird.
Here are some tips on caring for these cheerful, chirpy little birds:
- As with all birds, purchase the largest cage you can afford, because lovebirds are quite active. Bars should be positioned horizontally for climbing and perching, and should be spaced no more than one-half inch apart. Lovebirds often bond closely with their owners, and contrary to myth, they don’t always need to be kept in pairs. However, if you don’t think you can devote plenty of time to your new lovebird, consider pairing it with another.
- Select a high-quality pelleted food for your lovebird, supplemented with seeds, fresh fruits, and vegetables. A cuttlebone is also good for extra calcium and a healthy beak. Lovebirds adore toys, so rotate them often in order to provide mental stimulation for your lovebird. Just make sure there are no loose items that can become detached and possibly strangle your bird, and no loose strings that could cause them to become entangled.
