Love BirdsHabitat, Exercise & Play

Where They Like to Live

A metal cage is best suited to the needs of a lovebird, the minimum size for the cage is (18cm x 18cm x 24cm) with a bar space less than half an inch. Perches should be provided in the cage allowing the lovebirds to exercise and stretch their wings. For bedding sand paper or beach chippings are recommended. Food and water bowls should be made available if they are not provided with the cage - stainless steal bowls so the lovebirds don't chew them.

Bird Hide/ Nest Box 

Lovebirds like special resting places. Nest boxes placed up high, all birds at the same level and all of the same type work well and help prevent fights.

Exercise and play

Lovebirds awaken with the dawn, get a drink, eat, and then immediately begin to chirp. They will generally quiet down by mid-morning and resume their chirping in the late afternoon. These birds are very active, flying and climbing about, gnawing on wood or chew toys, and grooming themselves many times all day. They love toys of all kinds such as seed bells, swings, ladders, mirrors, shiny objects, and wooden gnaws. A lovebird outside of it's cage will not stay on it's playpen, they like to explore. Be sure this room is safe with no open doors or windows, no toxic plants, no open water containers, and no hot stove.
