Sally Blanchard covers more of the smaller species we keep as hobbyists

Over the years I have read many times that Lovebirds are aggressive and pugnacious and these energetic birds won’t be happy unless they are part of a pair. That may be true of some of them, but not all. Most of the ones I have known well have been delightful, if not, somewhat determined, as to whether or not they are one to a family or not. The main aspect that keeps them tame is daily handling and play with their human family.

Like some other parrots, Lovebirds are the kind of busy little bird that, once they find a small mole, scab, or dermatological imperfection on you they will remember its location forever. The moment they step on you, they will go right to it until it is obliterated. This is especially true if the caregiver makes a big dramatic deal about not letting the bird chew on them. The best idea is to just remove the bird from the area without any comment.
