The drop of blood is gotten from cutting the toe nail slightly into the quick, then putting a drop on paper and mailing it in. You can also ask you Avian veterinarian to do this during your health exam. I hope you have read up on some of the household dangeres to birds? And I hope you have learned what's safe on the veggies list, and have started to offer them. Hows the hand taming going?
Thanks, i do like Bean as a name, but have made the final name decision of Peri
And thank you for the info, i'll look into a DNA testing kit. I have a feeling its a boy but at least Peri will suit either way
The hand taming is going great actually! On Sunday I was able to get Peri to sit on my finger with some millet as encouragement, and have been able to do so every day since.
I have done some brief research into what veggies are safe, today is the first day ive introduced apple, i had Peri on my hand and ate some apple infront of him, gently tapped his beak with it and so far hes only licking it. I don't think he's had fruit before, i'm pretty sure he's come from and aviary nest and doubt fruit was offered.

Re: New member, help me name my lovebird?:)

Thank you all for your replies, I've named my little lovie Peri.
I've had Peri since the 31st Dec 2018 (8 days). We decided to leave them all together for a few days to get used the the new environment, also having just traveled 5 hours in a car we thought they'd just need some rest!
On the 5th they were separated, my Mum took two, the green one and the dark grey. My Nana took the ligtest grey lovie and loved it so much the next day she was at our local pet shop to buy another so it wouldn't be lonely <3
I've been taking Peri out as much as he'd like to, i've noticed he paces in his cage and chirps when he wants to come out. We have plenty of interaction and taming and i also just leave him to sit on his stand or the window or wherever he chooses.
He has no problem stepping up onto a stick, and will even hop on himself before i've even gotten close to him to give the command.
when i'm able to get him on my hand he happily eats millet, I pretend to eat it too as i've read they're communal eaters? Also shows i mean no harm as i'm relaxed enough to eat around him.
We're making progress a lot faster than i had expected so i am stoked!
