    thats amzing usily you cant find one bird or even a cage for that price, but if the cage is less then 30x24 its to small

    Not bad at all. Just be prepared for all the noise.

    Sounds like a good deal if the cage is nice and the birds are what you are looking for! Good cages can be $$$.

    Good deal if they are not old birds & the cage is big enough & in good shape. All in all I'd go for it, Even more so if you plan to handfed & sell the babies from the "freebie" eggs.

    good deal...

    but be prepared to loose the eggs if you move the birds while there still in the nest unless your planning on incubating them seperatly. the stress of moving often causes lovies to abandon the nest.

    Hello, I breed lovebirds and that is an excellent deal. Mine are all indoor bred in aviairies and some in cages. All my breeding cages are 24 by 30 with only one pair per cage, so you will need another cage for the young when they are on there own because the parents will chew on them.

    Thats is a pretty good deal. I have alot of Lovebirds. Depending on what color you are getting and cage that is a good deal. I think if you move them they wolnt keep setting on the eggs. I know mine wouldnt keep setting.
