What do we know about lovebirds? Mainstream publications will tell you there are nine species of lovebirds but there have been so many mutations that’s hard to say.
Lovebirds are primarily from the continent of Africa along with Poicephelus parrots and African Grey parrots – the grey-headed lovebird is native to Madagascar.
One protocol is that because you have a strong monogamous bond it doesn’t necessarily require a mate to be happy. That said, when two lovebirds have a strong bond they can make it much harder for the human (two’s company; three’s a crowd) to socialize with the pair

These birds average from 5 inches long to 6-1/2 inches long and weigh 40 to 60 g – right in between a budgie and a cockatiel weight-wise.
Lovebirds, much like cockatiels, are considered prolific egg layers.
Even though they are smaller birds they should really be provided a larger cage 2-1/2 to 3 feet wide.
They can socialize easily with humans but if you don’t take the time to do so you’re probably going to end up with a pair of “scissors with wings”
In the wild lovebirds live in holes.
