How to Buy Lovebirds?

Most of the first time buyers are in the idea that it is essential to procure two lovebirds as they think that without a pair, lovebird will succumb to death. It's not true! It is not necessary to buy two lovebirds.

Lovebirds can live alone for years together. Moreover single lovebird would be more attached to the owner. If you don't get two lovebirds, you at least get a mirror for him/her. As they love affection, it wouldn't hurt for them to have something to smooch up when you're away from home.

Buy a lovebird based on the personality rather than its color. Lovebirds are great pets. If you buy lovebird of seven weeks old, she should be hand fed with seeds and she'd hide out in your shirts for warmth and comfort.

As parent raised birds are really hard to tame it is advisable to buy a hand-raised one. Don't be in a opinion that lovebirds are calm and quiet. They will make huge noisy as they can chat and chirp.

Some lovebirds do kind of whistle but mainly they chirp, LOUDLY, most of the time. The cost of seven weeks bird ranges from $50 to $75, but mutated ones would be little bit costlier. You should note that long-term commitment I really essential while buying lovebirds.

Before going to buy a lovebird, learn about the behaviour and feeding pattern of the same. Lovebirds require attention on a regular basis. You should feed your lovebird with beans, pasta, vegetables, fruits, pellets, seeds, etc. You should allow your lovebird to fly outside cage at least few minutes in a day.

It is not a bad idea to buy a pair of lovebirds from a breeder or pet store, which plays with baby lovebirds regularly.
