moving nesting lovebirds

Submitted by brandy on Wed, 08/17/2016 - 05:56
Hi I am new to the forum and to having lovebirds. I have had them for about 5 months and they are going great. I have just purchased a much bigger and better flight aviary for them, however I think they may have eggs and I'm worried if I move them into their new home they may neglect the nests. Can someone advise me on what to do please. There is no problem leaving them where they are for now but I'm keen to put them in the new aviary. Cheers, Brandy.

If you move any eggs, the lovebirds will stop incubating them - which would destroy any viable life inside the egg.  Let them do their thing (nesting, incubating  eggs) and move them once the chicks are a week old or (better yet) two or three.  The first week, they are fragile and need constant care by their parents.  You dont want to risk parents abandoning them because they are upset / confused about the move.
