    well many lovebird books will tell you that u can start 2
    breed your lovebirds at ages 9-10 months of age.......i bred
    my first pair of lovebirds at 10 months of age and the
    results were 2 eggs were infertil,1 died in the egg,and 1
    lasted a week before dieing due 2 a splay leg.......i didnt
    understand i kept them realy healthy but they all had died.i
    tried again breeding them at a year old and all babys turned
    out fine and went 2 happy homes......by that i sugjest u
    start 2 breed your lovebirds at about 12-14 months of age so
    that your chicks turn out healthy(ALIVE),and happy........by
    the time they turn 4-5 years old they should be retired from
    breeding.
    GOOD LUCK,
