    Kiwi plucking his chest and masturbating 24/7

    Hello guys! A year ago me and my partner got Kiwi, he is an Agaporni fischeri and our first bird. A few months ago he started humping my hands and my girlfriend's hoodie, that's all he would do the second he got out the cage - hump and regurgitate. I even went to vet but he said it was his way...

    How to stop an older bird from molesting a baby bird?

    I have a Yellow Sided Green Cheek Conure who is 1 year and 3 months old. I adopted her from a previous owner, and just got the test results back to find out she is a female, so I now have two females, as I also have a 12 week old Cinnamon Green Cheek Conure that I just got a couple weeks ago.

    Frisky Behavior Question

    The rare times Slade masturbates when he finishes he poops also. Is this normal? None of my other birds do it till they're finished so it struck me as odd. He also makes the weirdest sounds :lol2: but I figured those are more than likely normal.

    Male or female tiel? Rubbing vent on finger!

    I got my cockatiel, Nibbler, from a breeder about a year or so ago. The breeder originally told us it was a male, but then checked again by feeling the vent and said she was a girl. Today we witnessed our birdie rubbing the vent against my fiance's finger for the first time. I have been...

    can you determine sex by masturbation?

    My lutino tiel is just over a year old. At first we thought she was a boy, but because of her lack of tuneful singing (skipping record yapping) we now think she's a girl. However the other day, Tango discovered masturbation. Then I realised this could be a way to sex her(/him?) Tango has a...
