My Lovebird experince!
On April 21, 2007 I got 2 wild peach faced lovebirds for my birthday. Their names were mango and kiwi. I enjoyed having them to look at. But whenever I would put my hand near them they would bite me really hard. I started to work with them every day until they started to step up.
I left them home while I went off to summer camp for 2 weeks I got a call saying that mango had died. I was pretty up set by it so I decided to get another bird for kiwi.
So I started to look for another bird. I found one at a breeder near by so I stopped in and picked up a hand feed pied baby lovebird named peachie. She was beautiful and she was very tame something that I had never experienced before. I took her home and I had read not to put to lovebirds together right away so I waited about a week. So they could get used to each other. Then
I got a new cage for them. I put them together for about a week when I started to realize that peachie the little pied baby was attacking kiwi. So I keep them separate. I could not keep up with two big cages. And one of my friends wanted kiwi so I sold kiwi to her. Kiwi still comes over a lot and her and peachie are starting to become better friends, now that they have done some growing up.
But I felt like peachie was alone and she seemed quite and lonesome (peachie was never a quite bird.) so I went to the same aviary they I had gotten peachie from but this time I wanted a pair so I got lemon and lime. Lemon is a cremino and lime is a sea green. They are a breeding pair but I still hold them they are very cuddly.
All my birds get along well I love to let them all out to fly around it is interesting to find out how all of there personalities mesh together.
