First Time Handfeed Baby Lovy :-)

A lovebird is one of nine species of the genus Agapornis (Greek: αγάπη agape 'love'; όρνις ornis 'bird'). They are a social and affectionate small parrot. Eight species are native to the African continent, and the grey-headed lovebird is native to Madagascar. Their name comes from the parrots' strong, monogamous pair bonding and the long periods which paired birds spend sitting together.

Hi Ctan,
This time the chick is Cobalts blue, two hatched but only one survived.
Still handfeeding to tame him heheee.

However, I'm wondering how my Green Fischer parents could get chick Lutino Red Eyes Ring :) Im so happy and glad to handfeed him as well :mrgreen:[/quote]

Hi Kelisa,
Happy for you obtain Cobalts Blue, still ada rezeki mah..
Difficult to judge/ assume the out come of the color when baby hatch, that depends on the gen from their generation/s. We can't really know the origin color of their parent/great parent and so on..... The only current situation is to noted down their offspring color c/w photos. Then from there will try to match color or inter bread them for 3 generation, then change out side species to avoid gen disorder. This will be very interesting issue for able us to obtain color that we wanted
Information obtain is that LB have 160 color available, and the most species are Peach face with different color. Sorry if I'am wrong on this.
Example : my Tiels is cinamon ( sorry if I get it wrong ), Eldest chick similar color with parents, second chick is Yelllow ( Albino if I am right ).. out of topic... sorri ah..
That the reason is very exciting to guess / to obtain different color when the baby is hatch unless recorded/ documented record from first clutch and mixed species/ color.
Happy Rearing

Hi Kelissa. Lama tak buka forum ni. Banyak ketinggalan activiti kawan2 semua. How're your two Handfed LBs Lep & Lepy now? Saya dah seriously start collection LB. Ada 1 pair + 1 male Fischers, 1 pair Red Eyed Lutino PF, 1 pair Cobalt Lutino PF and tengah order 1 pair handraised Lutino Fischers.

Hi bang, biasa la kadang2 kita pun x sempat buka forum ni..walaupun sekarang dah ada FB, tapi tetap layan MBF juga kerana di sinilah segalanya bermula buat saya hehee.. Alhamdulillah, Iep dan Iepy so far telah menghasilkan 4 ekor anak (2 kali batch -setiap batch 2 ekor). sekarang ni sya rehatkan dia (keluarkan nestbox) bagi rehat secukupnya, lagipun sekarang ni cuaca selalu hujan.

Best juga ada induk yang semi tame macam ni, mudah kita nak lihat/servis nestbox.
Banyak juga koleksi bro tu..semua yg mahai-mahai heheee..
