KEEPING of Black Mask Love-Bird: These medium- voiced parrots are characterizied by their mild temper and tranquility. The younger parrots are easier to tame. The older birds gain trust easily and thus overcome their fear of humans. In a cage of medium size, the birds can be put together in pairs or on their own. Taming is easier if the birds are kept alone. There have to be enough rungs in a cage so the birds can move around freely and keep themselves amused. One may occasionally offer them willow twigs to amuse themselves while nibbling. In nature they live in habitats surrounded with water, so it is necessary to provide them with more bathing facilities than for other parrots.

DIET: Sunflower, millet, canary grass seed, shelled oats, hemp, buckweat, sorghum, flax and the seeds of saffron are the main nutritional requirements of these parrots. The birds should always be provided with minerals and cuttle-bone as they are important components of their nutrition. Fruit and vegetables are a favorite food of these birds while apple, carrot, blade and chicory are considered to be their sweets and can be given every two days.

BREEDING AND CARE of Masked Lovebirds: For the simplicity and success of black mask lovebird breeding, there are common aviary inhabitants of various breeders. An outside aviary of 2x1x2 m (80x40x80 in) is sufficient per 6-8 pairs (3 pairs on 1.5 m3/53 square ft). They are sensitive to cold temperatures, so the temperature should be kept above 10C (50F). A minimal temperature of 15C (60 F) is recommended for young birds. In winter, it is recommended to give them nests so they can hide somewhere, even though they will not breed.

In heated indoor areas, breeding takes place throughout the entire year, even though it is not recommended to breed more than three broods yearly to keep them from exhaustion. Breeding season in outdoor areas usually begins in April and willow twigs are the main material used in building nests. Nests of 20x20x18 cm (8x8x7 in) filled to the top with these twigs provide a perfect shelter for younglings. These kinds of shelters also provide necessary humidity so that the younglings can be hatched.

A female clutches 3-6 eggs, and incubation lasts 20 days. The breeding period lasts 32 days. After birth, they tend to stay with their parents for 14 days after which they can be separated from their parents. Cannibalism and plucking the feathers may occur because of the lack of minerals which are necessary for the nutrition of these parrots.

INTERESTING FACTS: Speech imitation is not a characteristic of these parrots.
Life span is generally about 15 years or longer. They are seen in numerous colors and mutations, while in nature they are mostly green in color.
