They should be provided with proper nourishments, with the right foods, cages, toys, and allotted special time to bond with their owner. They love interaction for they are socially active creatures. Without social interaction either with a human or another Lovebird, or not having diversions, Lovebirds can be bored and stressed that might result to a behavioral problem. Surely, you as a Lovebird owner don’t want that. This makes a nice addition to your Lovebirds care list.
Don’t get cheap in feeding your Lovebirds. This should be listed in your Lovebirds care list, cheap, inexpensive seed mix or pellets often don’t have the enough nutrients your Lovebirds needed to keep them healthy, but they can also be used, if and only if you provide fresh foods for your Lovebirds. Try to give them fresh foods at least three to four times a week. Lovebirds love fruits except avocados, don’t give them those for they are poisonous for them – nice addition to your Lovebird’s care list. Just make sure you have washed it from the pesticides and insecticides used by plant growers. Another addition in your Lovebirds care list, remove all uneaten fresh foods from your Lovebirds cage before they are spoiled.
Another addition to your Lovebird’s care list is that you need to provide a dish of water for your Lovebirds, they are dependent to water, and they love to bathe. This also, helps keep their feathers in good condition. But, you should also take into consideration, the weather, Lovebirds should not be exposed to freezing conditions (nice addition to your Lovebird’s care list).
Their are a lot of dangers coaxing around the corner you might not know. Some of them that you might want to put in your Lovebird’s care list are, blue-green algaes, chocolate, dog and cat saliva, household cleaners and detergents and Teflon. When Teflon is heated and gets too hot it give off fumes that are toxic to your Lovebirds.
It is also best to find a got veterinarian before any bad conditions arise. You can ask for recommendations, because there are veterinarians who see very few cases of bird health problems, and have little experience in diagnosing and treating them.
One more thing you should put on the list for your Lovebird care is the cage. A lot of things can become a problem if you don’t have the right cage for your Lovebirds and the right place where to put it. You should make sure the cage is of appropriate size. Lovebirds love to fly around, so you should make sure it is big enough for them to be able to enjoy flying. Also you should place your Lovebirds cage in a place where there is a good sunlight. Lovebirds like to get warm under the sun after bathing.
Having this knowledge about Lovebird care, you know now the how’s and why’s of keeping a Lovebird. Good luck.
