MiamiLovebirds.com documents the life of our beautiful Peach-Faced Lovebirds (also known as Rosy-Faced Lovebirds) and their future babies. Each of our tiny, precious Agapornis Roseicollis is a PeachFaced lovebird. There’s Kiwi (female, lutino mutation), Macho (male, wild green, split ino, split cinnamon), Willow (female, turquoise violet opaline), Raven (female, double violet blue opaline), Buddy (male, blue pied), Moji (male, double factor violet split cinnamon), Haji (male, blue violet), and Sura (female, turquoise ino /Creamino).
The average lovebird lifespan is 15 to 20 years, although most live substantially less due to a variety of conditions (diet, how it’s taken care of). We are hoping and praying all of ours live a very long and happy life.
Lovebird is the common name for the genus Agapornis, a small group of parrots in the Old World parrot family Psittaculidae. Of the nine species in the genus, eight are native to the African continent, with the grey-headed lovebird being native to Madagascar.
Social and affectionate, the name comes from the parrots’ strong, monogamous pair bonding and the long periods which paired birds spend sitting together.
Lovebirds live in small flocks and eat fruit, vegetables, grasses, and seeds. Black-winged lovebirds also eat insects and figs, and black-collared lovebirds have a special dietary requirement for native figs, making them problematic to keep in captivity.
Some species are kept as pets, and several coloured mutations have been selectively bred in aviculture. The average lifespan is 20 to 30 years.
It took us a very long time to find a “blue” or “violet” PeachFaced lovebird breeder in the Miami area. In the future, should we decide to have babies for adoption, it will be with the goal of producing blue, violet or turquoise lovebirds which are rare. It’s just a thought for now and we may change our mind, time will tell and we will pray on it. There is A LOT to learn when it comes to breeding and – in our opinion – it should never be done for profit but for the love of the species. These beautiful feathered creatures deserve a loving home.
