Pair blue lovebirds.
Birthdate is approximate, as we adopted them in 2016 from a friend who found them challenging. They are now happy in a very large cage with bird lighting and two coconut shell homes between them .
They are not hand tame, and are therefore unsuitable for children. They lay, but the female doesn't brood long, so eggs would have to be incubated.
We simply want the space, and so are looking for a new home. The birds are free to anyone who can show that they can care for them. We will part with the cage and extras for £80 ono
Safety Notice: NEVER send a payment or deposit online before viewing the Pet to confirm the advert is genuine. Read our Covid-19 safe buying guide.
Be extra cautious with online transactions!
We encourage you to read these guidelines before buying or adopting a bird.
Carry out the research so you have the necessary knowledge of the pet bird you are getting. Since owning a pet is a big commitment, you should research about the breed fully to make sure it fits your current lifestyle and budget.
Take time to visit the advertiser's home to confirm if they are genuine. Do not settle for online communications and photos. UK Pets does not verify the authenticity of all advertisers. The advertiser should allow you to personally see the bird. If they keep on giving you excuses why you could not visit their home or the address stated in the advert is not the accurate and permanent location of the pet, consider this a red flag.
Never pay anything online through money transfer companies especially if you have not personally visited the advertiser and seen the pet, this includes deposit and delivery cost for the pet. There is also no means to recover your money if issues arise. Before closing a deal.
The advertiser should only release the birds when they are 6 - 8 weeks old or older. They should be responsible enough to know that separating the bird from the mother earlier results in medical and behavioural issues.
