Hi everyone my male lovebird was constantly regurgitating his food and feeding my female but over the last couple of days it has stopped altogether is somthing wrong maybe or thier mating season over and done with I didn't want them to mate so didn't encourage it by putting any nesting materials in the cage but I'm just wondering why he has stopped doing this they don't seem as lovey dicey as they were any advice would be appreciated thankyou

I don´t know 100%, but in my own experience with my bonded pairs, I find they go in and out of that super iconic lovebird snuggle, preening phase. Sometimes they are a little distant, for example they will nap on different perches, eat separately, less preening, no mating.
I have noticed this with all three of my pairs, though I´m not quite sure how it works into the seasons, I live in a warm climate where it´s hot and humid most of the year so I won´t be able to draw a solid conclusion on that.
