Default Moulting behaviour

Hey guys, have a question for the group.

So my boy is a year old had him since he was 8 weeks old and this is a behaviour he's always done, so it normal for him but I'm curious if other budgies do this too.

So during his moults he has loose dropping - increase urine production for some reason. But during this time he romances his toys - feeding them, singing to them and once his new feathers come in he, uh, makes love to his chosen toy - a lot. After about a month of this he cools off and goes back to normal (although I do change his cage up so that might have something to do with it).

Does anyone else's bird do this? Or is it just Bertie being weird again?

Bertie is displaying typical male behaviours, he is in his prime just about and the hormonal urges will be huge. I think regarding it happening during is moulting is more of a coincidence, if he is fed a diet high in protein he will be prone to being in condition more as well.
The loose droppings and urine production is normal for when a budgie is moulting . My budget is doing exactly the same right now. P.S. He loves his toys as well.
