pairing lovebirds

Reported by burungku | October 28th, 2018 @ 08:19 AM

As we already mentioned in numerous occasions, lovebirds have a strong reproductive instinct. Quote from bakicau.com, breeding gives meaning to their lives and that is one of the problems breeders face every single breeding season. Immediately after finishing one clutch they just want to begin breeding again, then as summer starts they want to keep going. Their instinct is so powerful that only us can control how many times they breed so their health is not affected.

As we are not going to free them so nature controls their reproductive instinct, it is our duty to make their lives as similar as possible to the life they could have had as wild birds. We have to ensure that they can develop the three essential functions inherent to every living being: feeding, socializing and breeding. Read also perbedaan cucak ijo jantan dan betina.

Assuming that all the animals we keep in captivity are well-nourished, we will then focus in the other two basic functions. As we already said, socializing is crucial. It is essential that they interact with their environment and other birds of the same species. To make this possible, we will provide them with a nice and big space and the company of other lovebirds.

It is very common for new owners to ask about having a single lovebird as a pet because they do not want to have a pair that would finish up breeding. Some breeders’ advice about this matter would be to get two lovebirds of the same sex so they can socialize without breeding.

Lovebird biola, as the word indicates, are the birds of love. Place yourself in front of an aviary of lovebirds and you will witness the beauty of their reside in the colony.
