How Do You Choose the Right Size Cage for Lovebirds?

 They're parrot relatives called Lovebirds, and if you keep them in pairs, they'll stay together for the rest of your life. They are known for the fact that they have a lifetime devotion to their owners because of this unique relationship. Having a lovebird is a long-term commitment, since they may live for up to 15 years.

If you want to keep your Lovebird happy, healthy and long-lived, you'll need a cage that's roomy and comfy enough for them to live in for a long time. We'll walk you through the process of picking the correct cage size in this post.

Before you begin, make sure you have all of the necessary supplies

When maintained alongside other parrot species, lovebirds may become territorial and aggressive, which can lead to fights between the two species. Ideally, they should be maintained in pairs, but they may be left alone if they get enough care. If this is the case, they will form deep attachments to their human caregivers and need a great deal of engagement and care.

Lovebirds need a lot of area to run about and play, as well as lots of perches, stands, and toys. In addition, since they like to be maintained in pairs, these parrots will need much more room than the average.

Can pet birds be taught to live outside of a cage and not to fly away?

The first step is to determine the minimum cage size.

Lovebirds are energetic, social creatures that are often housed in couples. As a result, they need a large cage. Lovebirds should be at least 24x18x24 inches for a pair, and a single Lovebird should be at least 18x18x18 inches in size. Because lovebirds like to soar, a long, rectangular cage is preferable than a standard vertical parrot cage. There are a variety of extras you'll want to include in addition to the basic cage necessities like perches, water bowls, and other playthings, so plan accordingly. There is no doubt about it: larger is better.

The second step is to ensure the safety of yourself and others.

Lovebirds and other tiny parrots, such as Budgies, should be housed in a cage specifically intended for them. If you want to keep your Lovebirds from escaping or becoming caught in their cage, you need to make sure the bars aren't too far apart. Lovebirds should be housed in wire cages with bars no more than 12 inch apart since they cannot gnaw through them. In addition, the bars should travel parallel to one another with no convergence. A converging point might cause your Lovebirds to fall down the bars and be hurt. Also, since these birds are voracious chewers, be certain the cage you choose is devoid of any potentially hazardous materials and that it has no sharp edges that might damage them.

For your own safety, make sure the cage doors are properly locked before you purchase. Lovebirds, despite their intelligence, may quickly learn to open improperly secured cage doors.

Accessibility is the third step.

If you're going to buy a cage, make sure it has separate entrances for cleaning and feeding. The cage entrance should be large enough to clean the cage and add or remove toys or baths while the feeding door should be tiny enough to provide your birds food. Additionally, a cage with a detachable bottom tray is highly recommended. This will make cleaning your bird's cage a lot easier since you don't have to take everything out of the cage to clean it. To make cleaning the cage more easier, line it with newspaper.

Step 4: Choose a location.

Before you buy a Lovebird cage, decide where it will go in your house. This will help you limit down the size that you can handle, and you can then acquire the appropriate cage size.

Your Lovebird's cage should be kept out of direct sunlight, not too near to windows, but yet exposed to natural light and with sufficient of ventilation. Your Lovebird is a sociable creature that enjoys being near to their owners, so try to keep them in an area where they will be a part of the everyday action in your house. Finally, its cage should be high up and away from other pets in your house.

We also suggest investing in a cage cover to keep your birds safe at night. This cover should be created specifically for bird cages. Towels and bedding should not be used since your bird's claws might get entangled in the fibers.

5th Step: Furnishing

Your Lovebird's health and happiness are dependent on having enough area to fly about in, as well as the mental and physical stimulation provided by toys and perches. They'll need at least two or three perches of varying sizes and textures made of wood, branches, rope, or wooden dowels. They'll also like swings, chew toys, and puzzles, as well as water and food dishes, which all take up room.

All of these accessories must be considered when determining the appropriate cage size for your Lovebirds, and the more birds you have, the more accessories you'll want, and therefore the bigger the cage you'll require.


Pet birds

Housing a Lovebird is simple, and it doesn't take much to provide your Lovebird with a healthy home. Aim for the largest cage you can afford, with closely spaced bars and a horizontal rather than vertical design to allow them adequate room to fly. With all of these conditions met, your Lovebird should have a long and happy life!
