Default Regurgitation Behaviors

Hi..
I've been reading up on regurgitation (yes, it's true, I have no life )

My budgies haven't done much of this except during their parenting experience. Now... Cody and PJ seem to exchange this worm like slimy thing (Yuck ) and Ivy and Lemony seem to spend time feeding each other.. What's up with this?

Oscar also gets involved when they are all out together. Can someone explain the beak rubbing thing vs. regurgitation? And what it all means. I am just wanting to understand why they do this.

Thanks again.

Regurgitation to one another is a form of bonding between budgies.
It is the "nuturing" aspect of their affection toward one another as it is the way parents "nuture" their chicks.

Beak "bumping" or rubbing is a means of the budgie communicating "Hey! I'm here -- pay attention to me now!"

I love it when the budgies do the beak bump.

By the way, Peachy "feeds" me whenever he gets the chance -- especially first thing in the morning and last thing at night.

Thanks... Peachy does love you so much. .
Does this affection thing always include slimy worm stuff? They do a lot of beak rubbing.. I get the beak bump thing, I think and I do like that.
So I think you are saying this is all pretty positive? They do all seem to get along well as long as they do what Lemony wants them to do.
Ivy is getting a bit more assertive and bugs Lemony with her "hey! I'm here.. see? Watch me, watch me!" stuff.
Thanks again for the help.

Blue and Fifo regurgitate food between each other . They seem o both initiate the procedure as often as each other, they do not do this with Budget. Budget regurgitates to his favourite bell, he tries to get me to feed him poor little fellow this is the only time he has bit me not that it hurts LOL. I think he is frustrated I am not giving him the love back he so freely gives me.
f only he could understand that I love him soooo much

Many anthropologists believe that the human kiss comes from old forms of mouth feeding. Meaning that when we kiss or when bird regurgitate, we are in fact doing the same thing

From Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kiss)
'Kissing in humans is postulated to have evolved from the direct mouth-to-mouth regurgitation of food (kiss-feeding) from parent to offspring or male to female (courtship feeding) and has been observed in numerous mammals.[55] The similarity in the methods between kiss-feeding and deep human kisses (e.g. French kiss) are quite pronounced; in the former, the tongue is used to push food from the mouth of the mother to the child with the child receiving both the mother's food and tongue in sucking movements, and the latter is the same but forgoes the premasticated food. In fact, through observations across various species and cultures, it can be confirmed that the act of kissing and premastication has most likely evolved from the similar relationship-based feeding behaviours.'

We're more closely related to birds than we think
