Peachface Lovebird

The Peachface Lovebird is small in size but big in personality. They enjoy interacting with their owners and love playing with new toys as well. Peach-faced lovebirds will often weave nesting material in the cage bars. Peach-faced lovebirds remain active and you won’t usually find them sitting still unless it is to eat, drink or sleep.

At Kellyville Pets we love our animal friends and are committed to matching owners with the right pet and providing customers with unsurpassed advice, service and selection of products. This is our way of ensuring our animals have the best possible start in their new home with you. All birds come with a 14 day health guarantee and a 7 day cooling off period as part of our standard policies and procedures.

Peachface Lovebird Temperament:

Peach-faced lovebirds can be nippy and territorial, so daily handling and reinforcement of good behavior is necessary. Lovebirds can overindulge in seed, so provide plenty of fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains and exercise. A pellet bird diet is ideal as a base for nutrition, but peach-faced lovebirds can sometimes be reluctant to accept a pelleted diet unless weaned onto it as a baby. Mix seeds and pellets over a period of time to get peach-faced lovebirds accustomed to pellets.

Peachface Lovebird Grooming:

Regular wing clipping is recommended to prevent flying away or any injuries to the bird.
Giving your Lovebird the opportunity to bathe is important. Frequent bathing serves several purposes. It prevents dry skin, softens the keratin coating which helps with moulting, and keep your bird bright and clean.
Your bird should have access to a bathing dish with fresh water every day.


Peachface Lovebird Feeding:

Balanced nutrition is very important for pet Lovebirds. Most pet Lovebirds do well on a diet consisting of a high quality commercial pellet and seed mix, and supplemented with lots of fresh bird-safe fruits and vegetables.

Peachface Lovebird Colouring:

These Lovebirds come in a huge variety of colour mutations, from greens, to blues through to yellows and violets. The possibilities are endless!

Peachface Lovebird Cage:

Lovebirds can be quite active little birds, and should be allowed time outside their cage each day to play, explore, and stretch their wings.

The cage should be as large as possible. The height of the cage is less important than the width and length. Your bird needs to be able to flap its wings without risking injury. Ideally the minimum length and width should be 50cm. This size will give more room for your bird to fly from one side to the other.
