Post: Want to get a friend for single unknown sex lovebird
Posted by Jennifer on 3/02/08
My aunt was just given a peach faced lovebird, sex unknown,
by someone who no longer wanted it. It came complete with
huge cage, toys, fuzzy sleeping house, lots of food and
supplements. The bird is a few years old and did not seem
upset at all by the change in surroundings, within minutes
of arriving at it's new home he was eating, preening,
checking us out and singing away. I don't believe it was
handled much, and I know my aunt, for fear that he will fly
into a wall or worse be a victim of the cats, will probably
not try to handle the bird either.
So we are thinking of getting another one. Thing is, we do
not know the sex of this bird...would it get along with
either sex if we get another peach face or do you have to
get a male if you have a female and vice versa? We were
hoping to find a rescue bird to adopt, and maybe keep them
in separate cages until they get to know each other, but I
do not know the sex rules as far as lovebirds getting along
Thanks for any advice.
