Agapornis roseicollis

The most common lovebird species in captivity, they are prolific breeders. At least seventeen distinct Peachfaced mutations exist, allowing well over 100,000 possible color combinations. Only the Budgerigar (parakeet) comes in a wider array of colors.

They can still be found in the wild, in Southwestern Africa-- around Namibia and Angola. They are the largest of the lovebirds typically weighing in at from 50-60 grams. They have clownish, cuddly personalities, but can be very noisy. They even play in hamster wheels. They will not die of loneliness if kept alone; in fact, if kept in pairs they will only have eyes for each other, and the owner will miss out on a great companion parrot
