As Pets


Arrange a big cage that gives the bird room for flying and exercising on its own. Also, some toys inside the cage are required for the bird’s mental stimulation. But, if a single bird is kept in a small cage, then make sure to give it some free time by letting it out of the cage for a few hours daily.


Room temperature is the best way to go about but keep in mind, juvenile birds can’t stand temperatures below than 50°F.


The social bird prefers human company, playing with fellow lovebirds, and doing something interesting to feed their mental activity. The bird, like its cousins, is best kept in pairs and doesn’t depend on others for their happiness.


Commercial pallets as well as vegetables, fruits, and seeds are suitable for lutino lovebirds.

Keeping the cage and the bird clean is important. Bathing for the lovebird is a daily activity that you can’t miss. As far as the mood of the bird is concerned, it is a happy bird with its counterparts. But if you have a single bird, keep its attention occupied by conversing and playing with it.

Health problems

Psittacine beak and feather disease, yeast infections, polyomavirus infection, avian pox virus infection, mites, internal parasites, respiratory ailments, and bacterial infections are common ailments for lutino lovebirds. Consulting a vet is a viable option if you see your pet suffering from unusual symptoms like ruffled feathers, loss of appetite, and other problems.


A single lovebird is available within a range of $80-$250.
