In need of good advice on a hard decision.


May 25, 2015
Hello and thanks in advance for reading. My heartbreaking problem consists of a peach-headed lovebirs and a parakeet. Any input is welcome.

My wife and I cross-surprised each other with these 2 cuties at our anniversary a year ago. And today, we must give away the lovebird with a heavy heart. I need to know how they will both get affected by this separation.

Here are the facts and questions;
- They lived in separate cages
- They got along like brothers
- Parakeet's POV changed a bit in puberty
- Parakeet always been the tamed, kind one
- Lovebird never stopped trying for more dominance
- We never could trained lovebird properly
- And now lovebird s causing to much problem by both biting and screaming
- We have a baby coming in a couple of months, we cant risk her well being
- What would happen to the lovebird if we gave him away back to the pet shop
- How devastated parakeet would be? He wont be alone in the house tho

Thats our dilemma. Any help is more than welcome.

The pet store will resell the lovebird. the are very hard to tame. Maybe another parakeet for a buddy ? If you get a mate the parakeet may become mean as well. so one from the same sex seems to be the way to go. You can sell the lovebird for a few dollars back to the pet shop if they will take it. the only other thing is keeping it caged around baby congrats on new baby and welcome to BYC.
