[size:11pt][b]Are you sure they didn’t like the toys? :confused: It sounds like they loved them! :grin: I think it is pretty much their job to destroy the toys we give them.[/b][/size] :D

Suzzie, that's too bad that Stormy and Hope are so destructive, LOL! You're trying your best, don't worry. You should get them shredding toys. Actually you should just buy them a "Shredders" strip. It's made of natural woven pam leaves and can befound at Petco/Petsmart. It's 30 feet long and lasts a very long time. Just cut off a piece of the Shredder strip and weave it between the cage bars. Your females and the lovebird may like it as well.

Budgies sually will not breed if there are other birds in the cage with them. There are also a few things you can do to prevent breeding. You should re-arrange the cage every 1-2 months and you should take out anything that could be used as a nest such as a cozy hut, tiki hut, large bowls, etc. Then, most likely, your keets will not breed. Even if the female is in breeding mode. Good luck with everything!


RIP Jayka, Grayson, and Emmit

It usually the females that chew up everything. I will see if I can find anything on determining gender of lovebirds.

Sounds like you had an exciting day with your birds.

I have looked on several sites and the answer is - you can't. The only way to sex a lovebird is by a DNA test.
