WHY A LOVEBIRD, IS IT RIGHT FOR YOU?

Post by Dammam on Mon Mar 23, 2009 3:43 pm

WHY A LOVEBIRD?

Perhaps you have been pondering about buying a lovebird or lovebirds for quite some time but are wondering what the advantages lovebirds have over the larger species of parrot.
Just continue reading and I will tell you...

Lovebirds are the perfect size
In comparison lovebirds are so much smaller than their larger parrot counterparts; they don't take up much space and don't need a huge expensive cage (unlike larger parrots).

Since lovebirds are so small they are ideal for both houses and flats (Apartments), Lovebirds are very hardly little guys (or gals) and don't really suffer from that many illnesses if kept clean and fed nutritional balanced diet; I have had lovebirds for over 4 years and I have never had a sick bird.

Larger birds like the Macaws have large beaks and can chew up baseboards, phone cables, books, doors ect and take great delight in doing so; since lovebirds are so small this makes chewing on large objects like doors and books a unlikely occurrence.
Lovebirds are not as noisy than larger type parrots

A squawk from a lovebird can hardly compare to a deafening squawk of a macaw or another large parrot which can upset the neighbors near and far; if kept entertained properly you will not have this problem with a lovebird.

All though a lovebird will call to it's owner when he or she is out of sight it will rarely travel outside the walls of the house unless of course the windows and doors are open but then again it barely compares the sound outside of the wild birds in the trees or the power lines.

IS A LOVEBIRD RIGHT FOR YOU?

Some people buy parrots just because they want a talking bird, never ever buy a parrot just because you would like it to talk because some times just like in the case lovebirds they don't mimic talking or they only rarely mimic talking.

Many experts agree that lovebirds cannot talk but I beg to differ, I have personally heard a lovebird mimic talking before; the lovebird I heard talk was a Fischers lovebird sex unknown.

Although lovebirds only mimic once in a blue moon they do mimic whistles such as a wolf whistle which my hand-raised peach faced lovebird "Peach" can do.
Peach is a female and it has been said before that female lovebirds are more inclined than male lovebirds to mimic sounds such as words or whistles.

Aggressiveness
Before you choose a lovebird you must remember that in the wild lovebirds are a very small creature in a big bad world filled with other big bad creatures that want to eat them for dinner.

Lovebirds have survived by becoming a very aggressive little bird and will attack and kill other species including larger species of birds.

You should NEVER add a lovebird to a group of birds that are a different species other wise your lovebird will be the only bird left after it attacks and kills the rest.

Noise level
Although lovebirds do not make as much noise as a larger type parrot would make, you still have to consider if you (and the people you live with) can handle the noise a lovebird will make.

Lovebirds chatter to one another and to their human friends in a high pitched sound; experts agree that the most annoying call is made by the peach faced lovebird.

Size is an issue
Parrots come in many different sizes, lovebirds just happen to be at the bottom of the size chart which makes them ideal pets for a flat (apartment) or house as the larger bird the louder the bird.

Cages are also relatively inexpensive and easy to find.
