Brooding in Lovebirds

 Brooding is a natural behavior exhibited by lovebirds, particularly the females, when they are preparing to lay eggs and incubate them. During this time, the female lovebird will spend long periods of time sitting on her eggs to keep them warm and ensure proper development. The male lovebird will often assist with the brooding process by bringing food to the female and taking turns sitting on the eggs.

Lovebirds typically lay between four to six eggs, which will hatch after approximately 23 days of incubation. During this time, the female will rarely leave the nest, and the male will continue to bring food and other materials to the nest to support the breeding pair.

It's important for lovebird owners to provide their pets with a suitable nesting box and a quiet, peaceful environment during the brooding period to ensure a successful hatching and healthy chicks.

Feeding Budgies...

  Here are some tips for feeding your budgerigars:

Provide a balanced diet

Budgerigars need a balanced diet that includes seeds, pellets, fruits, and vegetables. You can buy specially formulated bird food from a pet store or vet, which should meet their dietary requirements. However, it's essential to provide a varied diet to ensure they get all the necessary nutrients.

Avoid feeding them harmful foods: 

Budgerigars cannot eat all types of foods. You should avoid giving them foods such as chocolate, avocado, alcohol, caffeine, and any other toxic or harmful substances that can affect their health.

Give them fresh food daily

Fresh food is essential for your budgerigars' health, so make sure to provide fresh fruits and vegetables every day. Remove any uneaten food from their cage daily.

 Provide clean water 

Always ensure that your budgerigars have access to clean and fresh water. Change the water every day and clean the water dish regularly to prevent any bacterial or fungal growth.

Use feeding toys 

You can use feeding toys, such as hanging treats or food dispensers, to keep your budgerigars mentally stimulated while feeding them.

 Keep their feeding area clean 

Clean your budgerigar's feeding area regularly to prevent any bacterial or fungal growth. This will help keep them healthy and prevent any illnesses.

Monitor their weight 

It's essential to monitor your budgerigars' weight to ensure they are healthy. If you notice any sudden weight loss, consult your vet immediately.

Remember that providing your budgerigars with a healthy and balanced diet is crucial for their overall health and well-being.

Lovebirds colony: How to Search the best one?

Straightly coming to the point, the only breeds that can't raise as lovebirds colony are Abyssinian Lovebirds ,and Madagascar Lovebirds. Yes!!! You can breed  Black Masked, Peach Faced, Nyasa, Fischer's for effective colony building.

You should bred in the aviaries as such 5 pairs per aviary. You should put a flock at a time. i.e. 5 pairs at a time rather than introducing pair by pair to form a colony. If you introduce the birds pair by pair, the dominant one will try to fight with other males and there is every possibility of death of the new comers.So, to build a lovebirds colony, it is always to raise a total number of birds at a point of time. ALL THE BEST!!!

Hygiene in lovebirds cage

If you keep and breed birds, hygiene is of utmost importance. That is why cages and aviaries need to be thoroughly cleaned on a regular basis. Just how often this needs to happen depends on the size of the cage or aviary, the number of birds living in it, the season, and the amount of droppings, waste food etc. To save costs, some people decide to sieve the ground cover of the cage or aviary, so that droppings and waste food are removed. Any invisible waste cannot, however, be removed by sieving, so that the risk of contamination remains. When you clean the ground cover of the cage, shed, or night house, you should remove the entire layer and replace it with a completely new one. The type of ground cover you should use will depend on the species of bird you keep. The best-known and most frequently used type of ground cover is shell sand, but wood chips, clean river sand and even pebbles are sometimes also used as a ground cover.

The walls, bars, and the floor of the cage or aviary should be disinfected on a regular basis. You can buy safe-cleaning agents from the pet shops. Perches, troughs, and baths should also be scrubbed out regularly with a disinfectant. The more hygienically you set about this, the less likely you are to be confronted with problems.
