Meet Mok-mok and Mik-mik

Meet Mok-mok and Mik-mik. They are peach-faced lovebirds. And they are the pets of my son Neo.
He has been nagging me since he was in kinder to let him have a bird pet. Two years later, I finally gave in and bought a lovebirds for him. 
I think he already has the time, patience and maturity level for a pet bird. This way, I even can teach him to understand the consequences of his actions, especially if he forget to give the pet bird food or water. 

Mok-Mok loves the camera.

He is Mok-mok. He is 5 months old.

The white/yellow lovebird is Mik-mik. She is only 3 months old.

Why I choose lovebirds for my son as a bird pet? 
The peach-faced lovebird is a little more of a challenging small parrot. They are small at 6½ inches and have a life expectancy of 20 years. They come in many different color mutations. 
I picked this because of the low noise level, availability and cost only (Php 350 a pair), ease of care (comparatively speaking to the larger parrots), size, less challenging mental and emotional needs, and shorter life expectancy.
