Fischer's Lovebirds
My husband and I purchased a young (roughly 8/9 week old) Fischer's Lovebird on 21 May this year. We live in Melbourne Australia so Mango is a 'lockdown' bird in a sense! So we have much work to do in desensitising him to visitors :). Mango was also not hand-raised so it has taken a few months for him to 'step up' but we are really happy with his progress so far.

I have learnt most of what I know from Youtube videos on bird training and trick training. But really feel the need to converse with other Parrot 'Parronts' too so that is why I am here.

Welcome to the forums to all three of you! I love your pic of Mango and his fruity namesake - I named my lorikeet Lilly Pilly after the tree that bears some of her favourite fruit! :D Mango sure is a little cutie, he looks like he's loving life! :love:

Thank you for joining our virtual international online flock in what we like to think of as the nicest little corner of the internet - I think you'll like it here :)

Welcome and be welcomed. If there was ever a parrot that should be named Mango this is the one! If you like tricks, check out a few of the videos on my channel, link below, and I can get you started.

Thank you. I will check them out. I am always looking for new things to teach Mango to keep him mentally engaged :). So far Mango has learnt to 'step up', 'wave', 'hi five' (in his own way :)), play basketball, 'tunnel' and a bit of recall flight as well (indoors). I would love to get him to wear a harness one day so we are currently making small progress with that. :) Just wanna give him the best 'captive' life ever!
