Beware of some plants and dangerous objects

Agapornis are birds with which one must be careful if they are exposed near plants, trees, flowers and some fruits, berries, and fruits that are harmful to them. So try to make sure that there are no poisonous plants or dangerous objects that come in contact with them near the cage or in the places where you let them “stretch their wings.”

It is better to inform us well before purchasing any bird or pet. In this case, I leave some of the many things that are toxic to these birds:  the ficus, the juniper, the oak bark, the immature avocado, the lily, the narcissus, certain parts of the cherry tree, the tulip, the common fern, the creeks, the poison ivy and a long etcetera.

Keep a good relationship

It is essential to maintain a good affection with our pets, for this, it is necessary to give love, have patience and start with a couple of lovebirds, maybe not too young; and get along well.

We as caregivers should bring them the love, comfort, security, and tranquility they need. These birds will soon lose their shyness (if they have it) if you speak to them with affection. Remember that the lovebirds look like a small parrot, but they do not have that facility to speak. What we can expect is a noise emission by imitation.

Never let them live alone

These birds need to live with a couple for life, to be happy. So as far as possible, look for a partner that you like, and that is the same species. If your partner dies to try to replace it as soon as possible because your second Agapornis runs the risk of dying of sadness.

Although these birds need to live as a couple, you can also have small groups of them, all of them with your partner! If you are going to raise more than two Agapornis, it is essential to provide them with all the necessary care so that they are healthy, happy and robust.
