The Rosy-faced Lovebird (Agapornis roseicollis), also known as the Peach-faced Lovebird, is a species of lovebird native to arid regions in southwestern Africa such as the Namib Desert.
They are common in the pet industry, although lovebirds are often not hand-raised.

CHARACERISTICS
The Rosy-faced Lovebird is a fairly small bird, 17–18 cm long with an average wing length of 106 mm and tail length of 44–52 mm. Wild birds are mostly green with a blue rump. The face and throat are pink, darkest on the forehead and above the eye. The bill is horn coloured, the iris is brown and the legs and feet are grey.

BEHAVIOR
Lovebirds are renowned for their sleep position in which they sit side-by-side and turn their faces in towards each other. Also, females are well noted to tear raw materials into long strips, “twisty-tie” them onto their backs, and fly distances back to make a nest.

DIET
The diet mainly consists of seeds and berries. When food is plentiful, it may gather in flocks containing hundreds of birds. It can sometimes be a pest in agricultural areas feeding on crops such as millet.

REPRODUCTION
Finding a pair of these birds for breeding is not easy because their sex is not easily determined.  4-6 eggs are laid between February and April. They are dull white and measure 23.5 mm by 17.3 mm. They are incubated for about 23 days. The young birds fledge after 43 days.

Buna, Neagu Daniel, s-ar putea sa ai dreptate, si Rio sa te considere partenera lui. Si cred ca acesta e si motivul pentru care te bate.
Eu am de putin timp o pereche de gapornis si am vazut ca acum se iubesc si imediat se si bat si dau din bataie in iubire si din iubire in bataie.
Am vazut ca atunci cand aduci un nou papagal in casa, mai intai vei tine noua pasare in alta camera, 1-2 saptamani, ca mai intai sa le starnesti curiozitatea si treptat ii apropii si vezi daca se plac.

Acum am vazut ca anuntul e postat de mult timp.....acum te intreb eu, cum ai rezolvat problema?
Succes
