lovebirds and neophemas

Lovebirds are dwarf parrots, which are often called lovebirds, because they have a lifetime close bonding with their partner. The most popular species are peach-faced, fischer’s,  blackwinged and masked lovebirds. Neophemas do not belong to the dwarf parrots. Many common species of neophemas are, for example, turquoisines, bourkes, elegants and splendid or scarletchested parrots. Most of species of lovebirds and grass parrots come from Africa. In terms of feed, these birds have trouble eating the very coarse parrot mixtures. Therefore, for these hookedbills, Garvo has 9111 lovebird seed and 9113 neophema seed.

feeding advice

  • give fresh birdseed daily
  • give unlimited grit and sharp stomach gravel; sprinkle this on the floor of the aviary or put it in a separate bowl
  • make sure there’s cuttlefish for the extra minerals (among which calcium). That is good for the eggs. Furthermore, the birds can sharpen their beaks on the cuttlefish
  • during the breeding and moulting seasons give extra fats and proteins with egg food
  • supplement now and then with some fruits, leaf buds, or vegetables (no avocado)
  • always make sure there´s enough fresh drinking water
