I really hope that the bird you brought home was not only 1 month old! Lovebirds do not wean until they are between 6-10 weeks old, sometimes a bit longer. Babies need to learn how to walk, so they do look a little strange until they figure it out.

Re: Baby Love bird that walks like a penguin

It is natural that a bord will walk with a waddle like a penguin due to the structure of its legs. DO not be alarmed. I raise baby Conures and some of them waddle more than others.I have one that really waddles alot. I nick named him "The Hulk". I have another one that I call "Waddles".
Enjoy your new baby.
