Default I caught Ezio..!

I caught Ezio just now, ahem, expressing her love by mating with a toy of hers. I immediately redirected her and removed the toy. She isnt even a year old yet!! I'm so shocked. I knew that birds did that, but shes so YOUNG. What do I do to prevent this in the future?

In my world, that is 100% normal behavior, if I where you, I would not be to bothered about it, it's part of the way nature works I'm afraid, Fido is currently going through the same face of his young life, just like humans, birds take care of this themselves what ever way they can, if no other bird is around that is lol

Sorry Kay,but your post made me giggle a bit! I think Ezio's behavoir is normal and there is no way to prevent it.

It's true to that some young and more passionate budgies will at times exhibit this behaviour and this is regardless of gender.
My budgie girl Peppy would do this occasionally and she was only 4 months old at the time. This behaviour of hers was short-lived and she very soon outgrew it.
As long as your Ezio isn't showing the love for her toy on a consistent manner, you can keep the toy on the cage. If, however you notice that she is starting to develop an unhealthy attachment to the toy and is becoming less interested in you and is increasingly more alienated, then removing the toy and replacing it for a different one would be the best thing to do.

I don't know if the particular toy Ezio loves has a mirror or not. Mirrors in general can cause some behavioural issues, this is especially true for solo birds. Mirrors and mirrored toys on a pet bird's cage aren't something I would recommend.
