I thought about you. I was gonna ask how you were doing.:laugh:

Not to be of topic, but I just recently met a sweet little pionus at my nearest bird rescue. Such pretty feathers and gentle nature, she/he even let me pet their head. Glad to hear your feathered babies are doing good.

Checkin time again : ) so, as posted earlier, i have a new cage for the birds. And i noticed i have a hard time getting them out of it! They wont step up anymore, and they dont feel like comming out of it themselves either, most of the time.

Also, i noticed theres a lot of kissing going on. I havent seen any food yet, but they are such sneaky buggers! Do males do this too together? They are not DNA sexed (i care nothing for breeding) but they are supposed to be both men. I have nothing against homosexual birds really, im just curious :rofl:

I think birds act on their own personal inclinations with whomever is around? :shrug3: I may be wrong, but I think this is why they sometimes mate-bond with humans. If a female (or two) were introduced, I'd think it would certainly change their dynamic.

Sometimes birds form homosexual relationships even when females are present and available and there are hundreds of species including some insects who have been documented forming homosexual relationships in the wild. So I wouldn’t say it’s unlikely.
