    I do! Here is my one of my breeding pairs.

    I haven't been able to hatch any eggs yet, and since Milo died she has been a little misrealbe at times [​IMG]
    Otherwise she enjoys life. Penelope is a Black-cheecked Lovebird Agapornis nigrigenis. She seems to be of the yellow mutation.

    oh yes! we have a nice little boy named 'the chort', short for chortle which is a noise he seems to make and we'd make back and it just became his (weird) name. he was hatched by a friend's pair and they decided they didn't want them anymore so we got him or he'd be sold at a garage sale. he's a real character and is infatuated with our cat who tolerates him. she's a good cat. i can't seem to find any pics with them together, i have tons. i'll check my phone and update [​IMG]

    I have 4 lovebirds. One pair of lutinos, and 2 pied males. They are so great. One of them puts his head into a toilet paper tube and marches around running into things. I took the pair on a car trip and they loved sitting up watching things go by. I love lovebirds!
