They can be pretty mouthy. I was going to say he looks super tame!

How long have you had your lovebird? Do you know if it is a boy or girl? Super cute! I was thinking about getting one. What do you like and not like about the species? Are they fairly independent or needy?

I only had him/her for a few days. I don't know the gender, I'm just calling it 'him' . You should get one, these guys are not shy like most budgies, I love my little lovie! I let my little guy out all day, he doesn't poop everywhere like some birds. My little guy is only 7 weeks old so at the moment I'm like his parent and he flies to my all the time . He can be left on his own in a cage and he stays very quiet. I don't regret getting a lovebird, my only regret of not getting one a long time ago .

If you're going to get one then I suggest a handraised one. Someone who is a expert said to me before masked lovebirds are more mellow than peached face lovies so I would suggest to you masked species

Well I've found the black cheeks, although not hand raised, are waaaaay more laid back than the peach faced

Mine is a masked lovebird. He is no where near as loud as my green cheeks. My green cheeks are very clingy and scream for my attention all the time, I don't have this problem with the lovebird. If I left this lovie in a room on his own he is quite contented to play by himself and doesn't scream out to get my attention, lovely little guy he is.

He doesn't poop as often as my green cheeks which is something I also like a lot about him. I am also very surprised at how clever he is, he remembers things very well. He doesn't get spooked easily like my green cheeks, I can take him anywhere and he'll get settled into the new surroundings straight away.

Can you tell me how loud your lovebird is in comparison to say, parrotlets or cockatiels? Have you owned a parrotlet? If so, is it true that their personalities are similiar (lovebird and parrotlet)?

What about your schedule with your birds? How much out time does he get each day, etc.?

I think that the peach faced is definitely the loudest of the lovebird species but all can be very, very noisy. Blackjack (one of my PF) can really irritate me when he gets going. They have very high pitched noises. Here's a video, make sure you turn it up quite loud though How loud is a lovebird? - YouTube you'll notice that the lovebird opens its wings every time it shouts. I've noticed this with a lot of my lovies In comparison to my parrotlets the lovebirds are far more fearless. The parrotlets I have kept have always been very skittish whereas even the not-so-tame lovies can be really curious and playful still

My schedule is hectic so I'll let somebody else comment on theirs haha!

My little guy is still very young so this might be the reason he's very quiet, he only chirp softy when there's any sound coming from him, he's not nearly as loud as a tiel...yet?. I have done up a room specifically for my flock and when the little lovebird is older I'm going to see if I can integrate him into the flock for out-of-cage time. At the moment he iis much too young so he's been in my room. I let him out when ever i'm there, so if I'm in all day he is out all day with me.

With all my other birds I spend time with them all in the bird room, they all love to watch me through the cage bars dancing, talking and singing to them, they all like to join in singing with me too

I have never owned parrotlets but I have seen videos of them, I have to say my little lovebird's personality is very much similar to those .

When he's older and join the flock, he is going to get an hour of out-of-cage time, 3 times a day.

He's very cute. Black masked lovebirds are my favorite. I had one when I was younger, but he was not hand raised and very timid. I ended up trading him for my IRN. I wish I had worked with him some more, but I was young and didn't have a lot of patience
