So, WHO has RANDY BUDGIE SYNDROME?
Any successful ideas to nip this behaviour in the bud? Any good stories you want to share where you had a problem birdie?
He is harassing Blueberry for Oya's attention. They have been getting into some fights -- nothing too deadly, but I know Blueberry gets stressed out over it because I can see "redrum" flashing in his eyes. If anyone has seen the movie "The Shining", you'll know what that means.
Oya is the only female in my flock right now and Blueberry and Oya are a couple, so naturally, Jasper isn't fully satisfied with his bungie perch. Needless to say, I have separated them, given them time outs with cover on, distracted him with foods and youtube videos. My birds don't like being caged during the day and they have free rein of the apartment which usually extends to their perch and cage area.
I am also not ready to get them a couple more gals just yet -- for Zucchini and Jasper. Zucchini, on the other hand, is totally zen and just gets the heck outta the way.
Anyway, I'd love to hear any cute and irritating stories of your randy budgies and what you might have done to curb or tame the beast.
