All the lovebird family originated in Africa and one species from Madagascar. These very popular little birds are wide-spread in aviaries around the world.
They build a nest from grass or leaves filling a hollow, in fact literally stuffing it with material to nest in. They lay between three to five eggs that take 23 days to hatch and the young leave the nest in about five to six weeks.
There are many cross bred varieties of the bird and its colours.
