Default Mishka trying to get attention from Mo

Mishka is getting super super close to Mo, and it looks like he tries to preen him then backs off and repeat. Mo is just sitting there (I dont think he is bothered) But mishka is tying to attention from him.

My question is will Mo eventually let Mishka properly preen him? This is the closest Iv never seen two budgies, Mishka is basically on top of him (They are both males..so I dont think two males would ever?..) But Mishka is closer to this new bird than his last mate who sadly died a few weeks ago.

It is funny, it does look like Mishka is trying to get it on with Mo haha, has that ever happened between two males? Do they care? haha. Been a while since I posted here too so hello everyone!

Hello and welcome back!

With time, Mo can warm up more to Mishka and allow him to preen him, he can also preen Mishka back.
Preening is the most basic form of affection, and if they aren't yet preening each other, I doubt there has been a real mating attempt.
If this turns out being a dominance issue and Mo is disturbed by Mishka's advances, you may need to house them separately.

As far as matings go between males, these attempts aren't usually tolerated and fightings can easily be triggered the moment the male tries to hop onto his mate's back.

Ah well they arnt fighting at all, I never saw Mishka and his last mate preen each other (altho they were very close) But Mishka is really trying to get close to Mo and preen him but Mo doesnt seem bothered at all.
