Hi everyone! I’m Jacqui, I’ve recently gotten a 3 month old lovebird with hopes/plans to hand tame it. Im a complete beginner when it comes to owning and taming a bird so please wish me luck!
My little lovebird is grey and white with slight green tinges, I’m completely stuck for a name for it! Any suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks

Thank you! Yes i had 4 lovebirds in the cage, I was lucky enough to get them for free as the woman selling them had no received interest in them and needed to find them new homes asap. My Mum took two and my Nana took one, we had to separate one from the rest as it was being overly aggressive and causing one to pick at its feathers.
And so I was left with this little sweety <3

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

HiI think Bean is a fine name! I find his colors very soothing. To sex a bird you do a DNA test, you can find companies on line that do this. For the DNA test they ask for featheres you have to pluck from certain spots, or use a drop of blood. 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?
