Thank you. I do remember you saying the female eyes are bigger when discussing Ricks Avocado. I actually compared the two pics, lol. Because you were right with her! But Avocados eyes looked noticeablely bigger than this guys. The lady at the store says she thinks it's male but I am not convinced....That is a beautiful peach face lovebird. Regarding gender, the only sure way to tell is through a DNA test. Looking at its build and eyes, I get a feeling it is a girl. But that's all there is, just a feeling and it doesn't mean I am right.
The ability to get along with a different species of bird will depend on the lovebird's very own personality, the way it was brought up and how the socialization was made while growing up.
I have 6 lovebirds (5 fischer's, 1 blue masked) and only my Khaleesi who I had to pull out of the nest to finish raising myself gets along with the budgies.
As a chick he had close contact with my budgie Leonel who also fed him a couple times on occasion and he was always ready to preen Khaleesi's first pinnies, something I couldn't do as well as a bird.
Later on, I had to put an end to their friendship because the budgie was the one bullying the lovebird even to the point of plucking a few feathers from the neck area.
Khaleesi's second best friend (I always come first) is my youngest now 10 months old budgie boy, Luigi. They also had close contact when Luigi was a chick and they still to this day get along well.
They do get closely supervised out of cage time together and their time is limited because Luigi is too hyper and sometimes gets overboard and too much "in your face" and Khaleesi gets tired (is never aggressive) and flies back to me for comfort and cuddles.
I wouldn't trust any of my other lovebirds around the budgies or any other type of smaller pet bird. They can make a lot of damage with their powerful beaks.
