What are agapornids and what are the species?

Agapornids are a small parrot species native to Africa.
They are also called lovebirds. This name comes from their love for their partner. Because agapornids stay together for life. Lovebirds are between 13 and 18cm long and weigh around 50 grams. They reach an age of 10 to 15 years. The plumage is mainly green or yellow-green in color.

Agapornids exist in nine different species and color varieties according to current information. They inhabit different places in Africa. Here is an overview.

  • Greyheads are the only species not native to the continent of Africa. They live on Madagascar and the adjacent islands.
  • Blackheads spread out over Tanzania, Zambezi and Kenya. Unlike the sootyheads, they have a bright yellow breast.
  • Peachheads inhabit only a small region in Tanzania. The range of the blackheads is only 50 kilometers further north.
  • Rosyheads live in Namibia, South Africa, Botswana and Angola. Feral populations also live near Phoenix in Arizona, USA.
  • Strawberryheads can be found in Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe. They are a very small species among agapornids.
  • Orangeheads settled in Guinea, Uganda and Ethiopia. There is also a small flock on the island of Sao Tome.
  • Sootyheads are native to Zambia and Zimbabwe. The range is very small and they are thought to be extinct in Zimbabwe.
  • The greenhead is also called collared insect. Liberia, Ghana, Cameroon and Gabon are their home. The catchment area is so large that one must distinguish three subspecies again geographically.
  • The Taranta parrot is also called mountain parrot. They are found only in the highlands of Abyssinia in Ethiopia and Eritrea. They live there at altitudes of 1500-3000m.

The lovebirds as pets

One of the most uncomplicated is the keeping of agapornids. It is very similar to that of budgies and cockatiels. If you have decided to keep agapornids in the apartment, you should be prepared for an increased noise level. These small parrots have a high-pitched whistling sound. As the name lovebirds suggests, keeping them singly is not at all appropriate for the species. They are very cuddly in the group attitude and live a pronounced care behavior to the day.

However, the loving behavior can change from one moment to the other and the birds, which are also quarrelsome, go after each other. They should not be socialized with budgies or cockatiels. The nevertheless different species get into scuffles, where the Australian usually draws the short straw. Since lovebirds are quite curious fellows, everything is nibbled which can not run away. To remedy this, it makes sense to offer the enclosure with branches or shredding toys.

How do I feed my Lovebirds species-appropriate?

The composition of a species-appropriate agapornid food is similar to that of budgies and cockatiels. They feed mainly on seeds, berries and fruits and herbs. Thus, variety in feeding is required. As fresh food they like to eat apple or cucumber. Also sometimes a piece of melon offers itself. Flatulent vegetables and fruits such as cabbage, plums or beans are not suitable. Avocado is even poisonous for parrots in general. Mineral stones also belong to a species-appropriate attitude. During the brooding we offer egg food and also daily may be handed germ food and cooked food. For general occupation panicles and ears of corn do very well. A cob millet or even grass panicles are meticulously dissected with pleasure.

The species-appropriate aviary husbandry for agapornids

The design of the cage or aviary is important. Because with Agaporniden you have brought very active birds into the house. There are some possibilities, but also things to consider when setting up. Toys and furnishings should generally not be made of plastic. By nibbling on them, they pick up small pieces and can die from them. Please stick to natural furnishings. This goes from swings and perches made of wood to climbing ropes made of hemp or similar. This will also encourage natural claw wear and claw trimming will be almost unnecessary. To keep busy, panicles and ears of corn do well but also special shredding toys. Bowls must be made of metal. Preferably made of stainless steel. Galvanized components are toxic to the animals if they nibble on them. Mount the food bowls and water in places that are easily accessible to the agapornids. Nest boxes should be natural tree cavities to mimic natural nesting habitat. However, not all of the above species require nesting cavities. It is best to inquire about this beforehand. To cover the bottom beech wood chips are suitable, because they do not fly around so easily during flight and do not cause dust. However, offer grit to this to ensure mineral balance. In most bird sands these are incorporated.
