"I bought two baby lovebirds, one wild coloring and one lutino, from a breeder at the stage of them just weaned. They are very loud, ALL the time. I hear them outside from my second floor bedroom. I hear them every where on the first floor of the house and my house is fair sized. They were very timid until they hit sexual maturity, which is relatively early, and then they became hormonal terrors. All of a sudden there was aggressive cage territorialness, fighting between the two, one was nesty and I couldn't get near her, and they both acted feral like they were used to captivity at all. So, for four long years I've worked with them, almost in tears at times thinking that I may find a home for them, and finally in the last year they've come around. There's only occasional biting when one is in a mood. And I have them separated now, cages side by side, after one tried to kill the other one. She tried to tear the other one's beak off and now she has a hole and wheezes when she gets her beak wet. They like cuddling and will fall asleep if they crawl into your clothing and they get nice and warm. Mine like to stick out of the collar of my shirt like joeys. It's a bit difficult to have them out of their cages like the larger parrots from long periods of time because they don't stay in one place, they go to the bathroom everywhere and you have to keep an eye on them all the time. They love to explore and they're very bold. Lovebirds have been known to kill larger birds so keep that in mind if you have parrots or what not. They're also big toe biters. I'm disappointed that they don't let me pet them but I'm working on that. They like kisses on their beaks and they'll lick your skin and groom your hair. Obviously only let them if you don't use chemicals and it's clean. They should have as large as a cage as you can afford and have room for because they're both good flyer's and climbers. However, clipping their wings will curb aggressive behavior. All in all, they're my babies, I accept them for who they are. It lights up their day just to come out and play with their mommy. And they always call to me to check in. I wouldn't trade them for the world!"
