The image of a pair of lovebirds snuggling together may be romantic, but it's not necessary to have more than one. In fact, two lovebirds will tend to bond together, effectively blocking you out of their little group. A single lovebird, however, can be a good pet who enjoys being with you. When choosing a lovebird, try to find one that's been hand-fed, rather than raised by its parents. It'll be more used to humans and adjust to its new home more easily. As with any bird, get the largest cage you have room for and can afford. Seeds can be a large part of the bird's diet, but vary it with pellet food as well as fresh fruits and vegetables. They need a lot of water, so be sure to refill their bottle with fresh water every day. Lovebirds can be taught to speak, but very few do. Instead, you can expect a lot of chirps, squeaks, peeps, and an occasional loud, annoying squawk. You'll soon understand what your lovebird wants with each of these sounds.
