Default My budgie trying to mate with everything!

Hello. I've a 1 year old male budgie which making "love" on everything he is near with.




It started with when he was the only budgie which i kept it that way in 1 year.
He did first make "love" with a toy ball, then he was doing on a curtain rope ( for the most when he get out of the cage he is going crazy with curtain ropes. Then his mirror and now with straws...

i know it's the puberty but it's going too far

I've tried to hide the items but he will find other things to do with.

He is not alone since 6months i have a female budgie in same cage which he is bonded with but when it come to "making love" he will not do with the female. Female budgie goes nuts when she sees that he is humbling on things!

What do i do? He started "making love" when he was over 1 year old.

As his affections are not with just one item there is nothing to do. If he is not excessively regurgitating food to a certain item then there's really no reason to worry. It's just a natural thing some birds do. One of my male budgies does the same thing and he is in a mixed flock cage.
There's no harm in what he is doing so just leave him to it.

Hi there.

First of all, are you actually WANTING this pair to breed?
Before breeding any species, it is important to learn as much about the animals, their personalities and the best practices to follow for responsible and ethical breeding prior to making the commitment to take on this responsibility. This requires extensive research and an openness to continual learning and members will want to ask you certain questions to assess whether or not they feel that you are well prepared, before giving advice to proceed with breeding plans.

With regards to your male bird’s behaviour - Male masturbation in itself, is relatively harmless. As long as there’s nothing sharp or pointy and he’s not doing it all the time, he probably won’t hurt himself. Unlike female budgies who can get egg-bound, in male budgies this behavior is relatively harmless.
Animals feel no shame in expressing their sexual urges. It’s normal, totally natural behavior and he’s doing it because he has an instinctive urge to and it feels good.

However, this hormonal behaviour can be accompanied by regurgitation. This can in some circumstances become excessive and lead to the male bird becoming undernourished.
If your bird is also excessively regurgitating, it’s usually recommended to remove the item if it’s a certain toy/perch/accessory that is the source of attraction. In this case, it appears that your bird is using multiple sites and so this isn’t really possible. I would however, remove the mirror which can often be a source of frustrating unrequited love. You can discourage the practice by distraction and redirection. Redirect your bird's attention towards toys and healthy interactive play with you, the owner. It may also help to scratch your budgie’s head (if your bird is happily accepting of you doing this) as this will often trigger them into the alternative activity of preening. Stroking and scratching around the head is fine, but scratching around the back, rump, and hind end may cause sexual stimulation.
Your bird should never be punished or disciplined for masturbation.

It great that you have joined the forum. Stay around and have a read through the stickies:

There is a wealth of information to be gained there.

Before breeding any species, it is important to learn as much about the animals, their personalities and the best practices to follow for responsible and ethical breeding prior to making the commitment to take on the responsibility. This requires extensive research and an openness to continual learning.

How old is the female?
Why do you want this pair to breed?
Are these the first budgies you've owned?
Are you certain they are not related?
What sort of diet are you feeding them at this time?
What traits do you see in each budgie that makes you think they are candidates to be good budgie parents?

To help with the continual urge to "mate", ensure your male has access to lots of flight/climbing exercise.
Provide two or three swings to encourage him to keep moving and tire himself out.
Chew toys like Kabobs and other shredding toys are helpful and you should provide plenty of wood to chew--especially when he is in condition.
