My childhood lovebirds taught me how to love :)

Lovebirds are BEAUTIFUL, and having a pair who love each other is very sweet. To be witness to their love is a real treat. They canoodle gently with each other all day and sing sweetly to themselves (when they are happily matched).

The main issue with these birds (as with all lovebirds I think) is that they do make loud, piercing shrieks sometimes.

They MUST have access to water at all times, they really do need daily access to water so it is important not to go away and leave them alone for holidays. This particular breed are a threatened species in some areas because of less access to water. This is a good reason to keep them, as if they are popular as pets then it will encourage more breeders.
