My bird wants to mate

He's only 4 months old, and he did this weird trick where he placed his back against the cage bars. And I poked my finger between the bars and started scratching it's back. Now the bird is... wanting to mate. How do I make him stop?

When you post, please keep in mind that this is a family friendly forum and use correct terminology rather than slang when describing mating behavior.

You should never pet your budgie on the back, that stimulates the budgie's urge to mate. If you do touch your budgie, it should be on the head, neck or chest area.

To help with the continual urge to "mate", ensure your budgie 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.

Reduce the number of hours of light he gets as well as the percent of protein and other foods used to bring birds into condition.

Oh! Apologies for the slang! Okay I'll keep in mind that the back is off limits. Thank you.
