Fischer's Lovebird Species Profile
Traits:  Fischer’s lovebirds are known for their gentle manner, but are packed with energy. They appreciate new toys as well as playtime with owners. The Fischer’s lovebird does well whether it is raised individually as a pet bird, in a pair or in a colony for an aviary. As a pet bird, Fischer's lovebirds make loyal friends if the owner takes the time to regularly interact them. In an aviary, owners find the Fischer’s Lovebird an interesting species to watch. In colonies, these pet birds are less aggressive and quieter than other species of lovebirds.

Behavior/Health Concerns:  Fischer’s lovebirds enjoy chewing, so provide plenty of toys to avoid destruction of household items. Lovebirds can overindulge in seed, so make sure they get plenty of frest fruits, vegetables and exercise. Because the Fischer’s lovebird is active, a large square cage is needed to allow the small parrot room to move. Providing plenty of new toys and changing them up regularly as well as interactive with their owner will ensure that they are entertained. This pet bird can become territorial over its cage due to the extensive time many of them dedicate to nest building in the wild, so work with training techniques such as such as stick-training.
