Default In the mood to make noise all of a sudden

Hi, the last few weeks Rickey just talks and talks and talks lol (in budgie of course). I don't know why all of a sudden he does this, today all Lucy wanted to do is take a bath and he kept bugging her wanting to talk to her. She was not happy that her bath was interrupted. He is obsessing ober making noises for than last few weeks. Today he has been going on and on for hours, I don't mind it I actually live it. I was just curious why all of a sudden he changed, he is so in Lucy's face and as much as she lives him she is over it already.

Short video of mister pushy pants lol even when she said enough he ignored her lol.

I am not an expert but it looks like he may well be trying to court her- following her around, the chirping, head bobbing, and the moves toward her face (to try to touch beaks or regurgitate food) are all characteristic. Obviously Lucy is not particularly interested and is not shy about saying so.

Budgies do have a kind of puberty I guess, as they are starting to produce hormones and develop from a baby into a sexually mature adult. I've read this happening as young as 3-4 months but there's no set age for it to start. I don't think they really reach "breeding age" till about 1 year +, so that would be the puberty period I guess. Though I don't think adolescent budgies are any more sexual than adults, probably Rickey will always engage in these behaviors when he is in the mood for love.

Is Lucy the same age? She may just be not in the mood, or she may never return Rickey's advances. It varies with individuals just like with people...she won't necessarily pair-bond with him just because he's the only male available.

You should keep a general eye on them though. Budgie hens can typically look after themselves, but what you want to watch out for is either Lucy becoming receptive to Rickey's romancing (in which case you want to think about discouraging egg-laying unless you want and are ready to raise babies) or them becoming too aggressive toward each other and fighting.

Other than that though, just enjoy a chuckle at their antics!

I actually have no idea how old Lucy is( she came from someone who found her outside) Rickey came from a petstore and they had no age for him. He had already lost his baby bars though we have had him since June and he just went through his first molt with us not quiet a month ago. So we still have no clue lol

As for them being bonded they are, Lucy just got out of condition a few weeks ago. She is very close to him except for when is acting like this. We have have them both for 9 months now and they have not acted like they were interested in mating. We are not looking for babies since we have no idea how old Lucy is and don't want to put her in any danger. We try to follow all steps to prevent the mood for babies.

I was hoping he is just happy and nothing more lol

Budgies can be sexually mature as young as 4 months (my male Sammy was sexually mature at 4.5 months, verified via x-ray by the vet when we were x-raying something else). So they will start to explore, particularly if they fancy a female like your Lucy. However, budgies should not be allowed to breed until they are at least 1 year.

If breeding is not something that you're interested in (as it can mean a lot of commitment and stepping in during difficult situations) you can check out this thread: https://talkbudgies.com/budgie-breedi...want-eggs.html

Good luck!

Haha, well it sounds like you're on top of it. Probably the mood will pass...sounds like it's just as well if their hormones aren't "synced up"!

Lol kp just had to share this

He has been making even more noise over the last 2 days, today he kept it up for 2 hours lol wouldn't his voice get tired lol. Now when he is talking I'm trying to repeat pretty bird to him and he is trying his best it is the funniest thing ever. Every time I hear him he is making new sounds kind of like he is trying out his voice. I sure hope this means he will start talking.
