    Caring for lovebird chicks

    Finally my love birds have layed and hatched some chicks after 2 yrs......At the moment i have 3 pairs that have 1 or up to 5 chicks that have hatched.... they vary in sizes but assume they are only a week or two old. I am a first time mum, so am looking for advice on things i should be looking out for and what age its safe to seperate from the nesting box. I haven't intetfered yet, as i thought i would leave them to do their own thing until old enough to seperate. Thanks

    safe time to seperate from the nesting box after 35 : 40 days
    Care and feeding
    Fresh food and water must be provided daily.
    Although seed has been the traditional staple of a bird’s diet, most experts recommend pelleted food as the way to go.
    Seed mixes provide variety, but they do not always provide optimum nutrition, and are definitely on the messy side.
    We recommend a high-quality pelleted food that’s formulated for your bird’s species.
    Be sure to offer fresh veggies and fruits to your bird every day.
    Dark, leafy greens are packed with vitamins, and many birds also enjoy grated carrots and broccoli.
    Common fruit favorites are apples, pears, melon and kiwi.
    Take care to remove any uneaten food after a couple of hours, and please do not give your bird avocado, cherry pits, rhubarb or apple seeds: these are toxic.
    Cuttlebones are necessary for added calcium and to keep your parakeet’s bill trim.

    I do not know how to care for lovebird babies or the mom, but I think Locebirds are beautiful birds. It will be fun to watch them grow up.

    Yes .. Lovebirds Are the most beautiful birds .. But without taking care you can not enjoy .
    perhaps you will face a lot of problems
    for example: splayed legs it is a simple but very bad thing.
