Beautiful Amazon parrots; The World Today.
The birds, desperate for a peck or two, struggle to find mates and reproduce but a zoo has now hit on a solution.
Cupid is bringing Ecuadorian Amazon parrots throughout Europe to Chester zoo's Rare Parrot Breeding Centre where they can become more than just feathered friends, said a spokesman.
The birds are put in a room together and allowed to mingle before pairing off.
AndrewWoolham, a parrots and penguins specialist at the Zoo, said: "Being a thoroughly modern zoo, we put the parrots together and give them time to get to know each other and then select their own partner.
"The pair will eventually bond by preening and spending all their time together.
"Once they are officially an item, we can send them on to other collections to start their new life together and hopefully they will breed."
