We have three love birds. Two are in one cage and one it its own cage. We will be moving in 3 weeks from Michigan to the Virginia area. We will be going by car and moving van. How do you think the birds will do? Will they notive a change in weather, although it is hot here and summer.

You're moving to a warmer area, so they should aclimate just fine. If you were going from warm to cold, there might be more concerns.

Have you ever travelled long distance with your birds? I have 2 parrots and one is fine in the car, the other one gets carsick (for real, she throws up ). For the one who does not do well, we place her carrier on the floor of the car so she can't see out - it eases her anxiety.

^ Not real sure how that was supposed to help the OP, but.....

We moved from FL to TN with two. The female did fine, but the male must have gotten a draft in the car and we lost him.

As long as you keep them indoors, I don't see how they'll really notice a difference in the weather anyway. And when transporting, make sure there are no drafts hitting them.

I just received two Love Birds for Christmas. I'm used to feeding my African Senegal fresh veggies and fruit but these Love Birds eat like parakeets. They don't hold their food like my Senegal used to. They didn't touch the corn, carrot and string bean mixture I gave them in a small dish. They like their seed and millet treats I give them. Any ideas on how I can get them to eat their veggies? Would dehydrated fruits and veggies work? Thanks in advance.

Maybe it's just because I doubt they ever got veggies before. The breeder only fed them a seed diet. Just keep offering it to them?

my lovvies will eat fresh but it took a long time for my older adopted birds whod never seen fresh foods to eat fresh and I had to chop it up pretty small.

Hi, foxy! I was hoping you would answer me! Thanks. I'm starting to eat the veggies myself. I talked to the breeder yesterday and he confirmed what I suspected,they have never seen fresh anything either. How sad.

I went Christmas shopping for them today because after reading up on them, I decided I didn't have enough toys and perches for them. I'm so used to TwoBee's habits, it's like I am learning all over again. My parakeets have been dead for years. So I bought them some fruit flavored stuff and honey sticks. Looked around to see what else I might try later. As long as the stuff has vitamins in it I feel better. I put vitamins in their water too.

I told myself I would not spend more than $100. It cost me, with tax and donation, $79.50! TwoBee and my parakeets would NOT investigate new stuff I put in cages, these two little guys immediately check things out! They are great. I'm sorry my late husband wouldn't let me adopt a pair of lovies that one of our bosses asked me to do. I think he would have liked them.

Thanks again, foxy. Happy Holidays to you and yours.
