Lovebirds: What You Need to Know About Them

April 25, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 147

It's always important to engage in a bit of research before you decide to invest your time, money and effort in something. The same goes for getting a pet. There are certainly a lot of potential choices as to the kind of pet you may want to have in your household. One of those choices is a lovebird. Lovebirds prove to be some of the more popular choices for pets these days, especially with the pet owner of modern society going for more exotic options. There are a lot of things you need to know about them, and below are just a bunch of facts you may want to look into before anything else:

- Deciding to adopt either one or two of these birds would totally depend on the kind of lifestyle you have. Perhaps you're someone who is always on the move and hardly have the time to actually spend taking care of a pet. Buying two birds would make for a better investment on your part, since they'd both have companionship with each other, thus satisfying their need to interact. However, if there's one thing that may worry you, it would be the cost. Having two birds in the household means doubling your expenses in their maintenance, veterinarian bills, cages and all the other accessories you might need to oversee their proper maintenance. If you think you'll be spending a whole lot of money, you should seriously think about whether or not getting a lovebird or two would be the best choice for you.

- These types of birds require special attention when it comes to feeding. Their diet, after all, mainly consists of high quality pellets which they nibble on. These pellets actually contain all the nutrition they'll ever need. However, you aren't limited to this at all. In fact, you can even add a few fresh organic fruits and veggies, some sprouted seeds, cuttlebone and a whole lot of fresh, clean water. You can even add in a few other treats which are as pleasing visually as they are in taste. You can actually research on these treats all over the World Wide Web, and you may even come across a few recipes which would be delicious for lovebirds. Also, you will want to make sure that you keep in touch with your bird vet on the vitamins and nutrients they will need to consume, especially since you wouldn't want to trigger any hypersensitivity which would prove critical to their health.
