Love BirdsHealth & Hygiene

Health & Hygiene

Always wash your hands before and after handling your lovebird, this helps prevent any diseases spreading.


The cage and perches should be cleaned on a regular basis (weekly), with new fresh bedding provided too. The cage should be cleaned using a bird safe disinfectant, while perches, toys, and dishes should be washed using warm water.

Bird bath or mist spray

Lovebirds love to take baths at least twice weekly. Make sure the bird bath is not full up to high as you do not want your bird drowning , or alternatively using a mist sprayer, misting the lovebirds with water.


The average lifespan for a Lovebird is between eight and ten years old.
