How the cages of Peach faced lovebird should be?

Recently, I heard that some of the peach faced lovebirds escaped form captivity and forms large feral populations in Arizona and London. So I decided to write about the cages necessary for the captive peach faced lovebirds.

In wild, they will often gather in small groups and are highly sociable bird. In wild, they will take feed through out the day and frequent baths. so if you're going to build a cage for your lovebird, please stick on to the following criterion-

1. A cage of 2'x2'x2' is more than sufficient for a single peach faced lovebird.

2. Do select the cage with bars quite close together. In reality the lovebirds are the Harry Houdinis in the world of birds and can squeeze out of many cages where other birds cannot.

3.Unlike other birds, lovebirds will try to pick the locks frequently, so check the door latches for proper security.

4. The wooden cages for lovebirds arenot all suitable because they're notorious chewers. If you own a wooden cage already, you must have one be ready to replace it as soon as possible.

5. The cage should have a small perch as the birds in order to avoid arthritis, which are prone to peach faced lovebirds.

Hi I am a new fallower of you blog, and thanks so much for all your info on here. I have a pair of yellow lovebirds, a wonderful, and loud gift from my hunny. I have had them for about 8 mths, they are so awesome.
Anyways, I have been watching them for awhile, and they were mateing, so I them a box, not knowing with the sex of them are, I had no idea if they would even lay.
