No idea about love birds or anything, but if you want a quick response go to some other birds forum or a forum that’s solely directed at love birds. Other than me, this section is dead.

 Question about love birds

I just did some research.. not eating fruits or veggies isn’t very good. They are vital in the lovebird’s diet; I suggest you take him/ her to a vet. As for telling the gender, you cannot be 100% sure. If you really care THAT much, you could get it DNA sexed, which is the only surefire way to tell the gender of a lovebird. Hope this helped!

Erm... are you sure he isn’t eating fruits or veggies? If he really isn’t that’s bad and odd. TAKE HIM TO THE VET! If you care about your bird you really should. Lovebirds are suppoesed to be fed fruits and veggies every day.

Just had another idea, try those special made for bird fruit thingies that they sell at the pet stores. If this doesn’t work then for sure take him/her to the vet.

This might help him eat fruits and veggies!!

It is not for cockatails,its just the size for that bird, they have bigger bags and smaller bags...this will be good for love birs..:) hope i helped!!

Try and mix that up in his pellets (you are feeding him pellets, not seed.....right?!) and I think it is a higher chance he will eat that with his pellets.
