Peach-Faced Lovebird Species Profile
Traits:  The popular peach-faced lovebird is small in size but big in personality. They enjoy interacting with their owners and love playing with new toys as well. Peach-faced lovebirds will often weave nesting material in the cage bars. Peach-faced lovebirds remain active and you won’t usually find them sitting still unless it is to eat, drink or sleep. This pet bird wants to be at the top of the ladder and will go after anything it thinks it can conquer, including larger birds. Peach-faced lovebirds like to turn any activity into a game, and they stay active much of the time, but when the time comes to settle down and rest, they enjoy snuggling with their owners.

Behavior/Health Concerns:  Peach-faced lovebirds can be nippy and territorial, so daily handling and reinforcement of good behavior is necessary. Lovebirds can overindulge in seed, so provide plenty of fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains and exercise. A pellet bird diet is ideal as a base for nutrition, but peach-faced lovebirds can sometimes be reluctant to accept a pelleted diet unless weaned onto it as a baby. Mix seeds and pellets over a period of time to get peach-faced lovebirds accustomed to pellets. Peach-faced lovebirds are expert escape artists. Make sure every opening on its cage is latched shut to prevent any unwanted escapes. A peach-faced lovebird's age can be determined by the color of its beak. Adults have a red, orange, light gray or horn-colored beak, depending on the species. Juvenile peach-faced lovebirds have black-marked beaks. The exception is in the black-collared lovebird, which has a gray-black beak as an adult.
