Hey,

I've been meaning to ask for ages. Paddington 'vibrates' all the time. It's not a visible thing and I can only feel it if I put my fingers right on his little body but it's like a slight vibration going on.

Is this normal? He did have a vet check when he was new but the vet was so ridiculously out of this world crazy with her beliefs and knowledge about lovies that I doubt she would have even picked up if he was a stuffed bird - let alone know what's normal for lovies. :rolleyes:

I sometimes wonder if he's okay but he's healthy happy and full of beans (and bean sprouts, his favourite) ;)

I'm familiar with the very soft vibration they emit. From what I have noticed with my lovebirds, they do so on the more quiet moments when they are lovingly interacting with their mates and are all puffy and glued together for either a cuddle or when one of them asks some regurgitated food.
I see this happy vibration as a positive thing, but I don't see mine vibrating all the time.
I have also noticed the same response with my Khaleesi, when I go close to his cage and start to talk sweetly to him. He does a very cute low pitched warbling sound and I can see a very slight vibration on his wings and body. Once I pick him up, take him out of the cage and give him a few kisses on his crop and neck, the vibration stops.

Thanks Ana, I made a point of putting my hand on him tonight when he was under my shirt asleep, and no vibrating was felt at all which is good to know. Seems I have a little energiser bird that hums along most of the time!

You're welcome, Madonna! ;) Your Paddy is a very affectionate boy.
More often than not, when I have Khaleesi napping on me and I give him a little kiss on his head, he immediately responds with a very soft ruffling of his wing feathers and I see that as a small sample of the happy vibrating wings. :)

Just to chime in, Peachy's little self hums along with a low level vibration quite frequently as well. ;)
That's good to know! :D Clearly our lovies are perfectly happy and make sure to show us how much they are loved (and love us in return) by showing this sweet vibration.

Thanks Deb, like I said I have been meaning to ask for ages. Good to know there's nothing wrong with him. Peachy and he are so similar in many ways. :rolleyes:

HAVE to add this poor joke - seems we don't have lovebirds - we have HUMMINGBIRDS. :eek:
