Default Budgie Lovebird couple

Hello there. A quick question for you guys. A lost Lovebird has made his way to my Budgies cage outse. My budgie is aloud out and the lovebird seems to be very friendly towards him. The Budgie however is not so sure and pecks at him/her when it tries to kiss or cuddle. But the lovebird just wants to be near the budgie. I see on the net that this lovebird may kill my budgie. They spent the night in the cage together, but I'm really afraid that it will kill it. Any light on the subject please. Much appreciated. Spyros

Welcome to the forums!
I have replied to your other post on the Lovebird Lovers section.
I'm glad you managed to rescue the lovebird. From your description on the interactions between the lovebird and your budgie, it's highly likely the lovebird had close contact with other species of pet birds on its previous home.
Despite the fact the lovebird is friendly to your budgie, it's still best to house him on a separate cage. This is done for your budgie's safety as well as your rescued lovebird. If the budgie is pecking, the lovebird may get tired of it and peck back and do harm to the budgie due to its much bigger and powerful beak.

Have you tried to find this lovebird's owner? You can place fliers on your neighbourhood, and nearby pet stores/vets stating you have found a lovebird.

For now you should get a cage for the lovebird and quarantine him for at least 1 month in order to prevent any possible illness to be spread to your budgie.
If you can't locate the owner and will keep the lovebird, then after quarantine time is over and depending on your lovebird and budgie's behaviour, you can let them have closely supervised out of cage time together. Even if they get along well, it's always best to house them in separate cages. The cages can be close by so they can see and communicate with each other.

Hi Aluz. Many, many thanks for you're very prompt and informative reply , and for taking the time to do so. Much appreciated. After what you have told me , I will now do exactly as you say. As I would hate for anything to happen to my little Vinni, and at the same time I would hate for this poor lovebird, whom we've now called Benji, to be homeless or fall victim to the many cats in our area. The pet shops gonna love you today. �� Thanks once again and I'll be posting on there progress as neighbors in the near future, should someone not claim the Lovebird.

You're very welcome! I hope everything works out well! The little lovebird is very lucky to be under your care and it's great you are willing to offer him/her a home in case you can't locate the original owner.

Good luck and feel free to post some pictures of your Vinni and Benji too, when you have the time.

I'm so glad you rescued the little lovebird and are caring for him as you try to find the owners.

I have both lovebirds and budgies and agree with all the excellent advice aluz provided.

We'd love to see pictures of Vinny as well as pictures of Benji (We LOVE pictures) if
you have any you'd like to share.

I'll be looking forward to your updates!

Vinnie and Benji are both adorable!
Thanks for sharing the picture with us.

Benji looks very much like my little Pedro.
