I have never had but two Lovebirds at a time but I have to
tell you this story that illustrates how they really want to
I bought one love bird that was all alone in the cage at a
pet store and he was okay for a few days, but I knew he'd
want a pal, so I searched all over the city to find one just
I brought the new one home in one of those little cardboard
boxes they give you and let the one already there out into
the room. The original just perched up on a high place and
watched me with the box as I opened it.
When they spotted each other, the original took off across
the room and the new one jumped out of the box and met him
in flight halfway across the room. They landed side by side
and never spent more than a few seconds separated by more
than a few inches for the rest of their stay with me.
With more than two I couldn't say but I advise to always
have a even number so one doesn't become odd man out.
