Breeding/Reproduction of Blue black masked lovebirds for sale
The Blue Masked Lovebird is excellent for the beginning breeder. These birds will breed as either single pairs or in colonies and have the same behaviors as the Masked Lovebird. When you provide them with a nest box be sure to also provide lots of willow twigs, strips of bark, or other nesting materials.
The hen will lay three to four eggs which are incubated for about 21 to 23 days. The young fledge (leave the nest) in about 44 to 45 days. When they become independent, remove the young to their own housing.
Care and feeding
A roomy cage is required as lovebirds are very active. If you have a tame pet that is kept in a small cage, it needs to be let out for extended periods to fly about. Your pet will enjoy a variety of seeds, fruits, vegetables, and commercial pellets.
A lovebird is a very social bird with its companion, and it is generally thought to be essential for their good health and happiness that they are kept in pairs rather than singly. They can, however, be aggressive towards other birds in an aviary setting.
