Baby Lovebird


Recommended Posts

Hiya all,

 

Bout 3 months ago I decided to build a 2nd smaller aviary, once completed after much procrastination I decided to get a colony of Lovebirds. I bought 3 from an add in Petlink (One pair & also spare male) - all Violet Masked Lovebirds and another seperate female Blue Masked.

 

The pair I bought had already started building a nest at their previous home but had never before bred. So I put 3 nesting boxes in and hoped for the best.

 

The 2 supposed females started building a nest together straight away, this I thought would lead to clear eggs. They lais 3 eggs which to my suprise appeared fertile.

 

This morning when I checked the aviary I could hear a baby noises coming from the box. It would appear I have 3 males, 1 female and 1 baby in the aviary. This was confirmed when I had a look in the nest box.

 

Just wanted to share as I am very exited about these events.

 

Cheers Brad

Hi Spanglewings, they are lovely birds, are you trying to breed them again?

 

My pair have hatched all 3 eggs now and babies are doing very well.

 

Cheers
