One lovebird or two lovebirds (The myth)





Many first time lovebird owners feel that it is necessary to buy two lovebirds because they have heard that with out a mate a single lovebird will wither away and die of loneliness.
Who started saying that was either lying or misinformed as lovebirds do just as good as a single bird as they do in pairs.

Although lovebirds do not need another lovebird to share it's cage with it still needs a human to share its colorful life with or else it will wither up and die.
If you buy two birds they will bond with each other and look so cute snuggled up to each other but since they have each other they might not bond to you.
training your birds
If you buy only one lovebird then you will have to give her just as much attention as another lovebird would give her but that doesn't mean spending 24 hours a day 7 days a week tending to your pet.
Having one lovebird means you will have to let her out of the cage and play with her to keep her entertained.
You will find that your lovebird will want to cuddle and chirp at you because she loves you as you are her mate.
