What do baby lovebirds eat?

Answer

Baby lovebirds eat seeds, vegetables, fruit and bird pellets. If the baby lovebirds are not weaned, they must be hand-fed with liquid formula that consists of infant formula, papaya and lactobacillus until they reach 7 weeks of age.

In addition to homemade formula, pre-made hand feeding formula is also available at most pet stores. Baby lovebirds typically eat fresh fruits, such as apples, oranges, grapes and mango. They also enjoy peas, broccoli, corn and beans. Baby lovebirds cannot eat chocolate, concentrated salt or sugar, or avocado, as these items can cause illness. In addition, baby and adult lovebirds cannot be fed any foods or liquids containing alcohol, as this can be life-threatening for the birds.
