3 Ways to Feed Lovebirds - wikiHow

Hi Frank, This is an update on my lovebirds breeding, they have now laid 5 eggs, the first egg got cracked and they disposed of it, but then laid two more eggs two days apart, the after 5 days two more eggs two days apart, the hen is sitting n them very tightly now and the other bird is also in the box a lot of the time both asleep, they are feeding one another and the hen comes out to feed as well and collect shredded kitchen roll and twigs and pampus grass heads to take in her nest, she will not use the nestbox hole but they both go through the proped up lid of the box, and the nest is well constructed, Ive tried shining a bright torch on the eggs but cannot see any veins in them, if they do hatch will the 5 day break in laying them cause any problems in chick age, and if they dont hatch how long should I wait before cleaning out the box or removing it from the cage? And if the nest is getting smelly will this cause the chicks problems? Also ive read about spraying the box with water to keep the humidity up and help the chicks hatch, is this a good idea as they have two water feeders and a bath in the cage already, thanks for your advice. Regards Judy.

A balanced diet constitutes a variety of seeds, nuts, fresh fruits and vegetables and a lot of other things. Often bird keepers assume that they are feeding their bird with proper diet but in fact they are not. A proper diet is when your bird thrives not just survives.

Lovebirds eat a variety of seeds, fruits, berries and vegetation such as leaf buds in the wild. Some people feed them with only seed mix which is insufficient for their health and well being.

The most important thing to consider when feeding a baby this young is timing. Parent Lovebirds feed their young around the clock for the first 7-10 days, and the hand feeder must also do this. Hatchlings are fed every 2 hours round the clock for the first 5 days. The schedule changes after day 5 and I will discuss this later.Often after a long separation or stressful period of time, breeding pairs of lovebirds feed each other to re-establish their bond. One bird transfers food to the mouth of its mate, a feeding technique reminiscent of affection in humans—hence the inspiration for the parrots' name.
