Actually, the title should read "Lovebirds breeding!"
I've been a member here for a very long time... goodness. Its been quite awhile...
I have 4 keets, 1 cockatiel, and 2 lovebirds (those are the birds alone!!). My lovebirds I got with a cage from a friend of an adult friend. They could not take care of them anymore. Rather than having to see the pair go to a shelter and/or "let loose" (As the previous owner was considering) I took the lovies in.
Pirate (the male) and Starburst (female) mated yesterday, about 2PM. I'm almost positive there was contact, they were doing their 'dance' for a good minute or so. I can expect eggs (fertile or otherwise) in about 3-10 days.
My main question is wondering if I may move the pair to a different (bigger/better) cage. Will the female still lay? Their nest isn't really a nestbox, but rather a clear container. It held their old seed that I got from their previous owner. If I move the box and the lovebirds into a different cage, will this throw the pair into shock? (By their personalities, I don't think the birds would know a differnce, quite frankly.)
Please answer quickly. If possible, I'd like to move them today.
Thanks a ton,
Its a zoo!
