>anything i should know that cant be found in care charts?
yes. they bite like tiny merciless pitbulls
Drive a stake through its heart, it will incapacitate the bird long enough for you to fire up the oven and burn it to ashes, be sure to collect ALL the ashes, you will need to mix them with soil from a church cemetery, then scatter it on a crossroads in midnight, and walk home backwards to confuse your lovebird's spirit. If you fail any of these steps it will come back more furious than before. Alternatively get a flock of budgies, they will fuck up the lovebird if they have numbers.
Let it bite you, eventually you won't feel pain. I prefer the arm and elbow since the skin is harder to pinch but it will still try to scrape it. Eventually it will warm up to you and only bite when you piss it off or do something it doesn't like which is pretty much everything.
So like every hour he's awake you or someone else is there to groom him, play with him, cuddle with him and speak bird with him?
I really don't get how with some social animals like rats and bunnies it's accepted to get at least two but a lot of birds still have to spend their days doing nothing in tiny caves for half of the day and if they're lucky they then get to fly arond for a bit on their own and play with some other animal not really suited for birdlike social activities.
Love birds are freaking dicks. I used to have one and she liked me more than anyone but Jesus she bit everyone. No one else knew how to handle her, probably why she liked me so much
You can't stop it. Just learn to get onto them about it the right way.
I used to gently but securely grab mine by the beak when she tried to bite and give her a "no tookie". She'd calm down and be okay for awhile after that usually.
Just don't be scared or twitchy around them, you'll get used to each other after awhile.
