Default I caught the head bow on video!

Hi all,

As you may be aware I asked what I means when I budgie bows to another. A few of you came up with some suggestions that it was the ultimate form of respect. Well, we finally got it on record. The final long bow is what Deacon does A LOT to Rayna, the one just before he preens himself. He normally does this about 5-10 times in a row with budgie beak clicks in between.

Take a look and let me know what you think...

Default I think we have... 'friendly' budgies, so to speak (another video, any tips?)

Hi all,

So it appears are pubescent budgies are being very flirtatious towards one another.

I have tried to remove anything that may be nest like but it would seem that the hormones are raging here. Any advice on keeping the chances of eggs to a minimum?

Splitting them up and letting their hormones calm would be for the best.

Hi there,

I have combined both of your recently created threads into one, since you are looking for opinions on both videos.

As I have said on your other thread, some budgies will make a form of bow towards their mates when more closely interacting with them.

On your second video, I can see the passionate advances and there are measures you can take in order to keep things under control, like not having any dark hiding areas on the cage nor anything that your budgies could use as a nest. Since it's Winter, it shouldn't be difficult to limit the daylight hours.
Reducing the amount of protein on your budgie's diet should also be helpful.
The detailed information on this link will be useful: https://talkbudgies.com/budgie-breedi...want-eggs.html

If despite taking the measures, you still notice that your budgies are too enamoured and the displays of affection are too intense, then temporarily housing your budgies in separate cages and giving them the needed time to settle and cool down will be the best option.

Good luck.

The bowing video was very cute. (Well, both videos are quite cute, but I can understand how you don't want eggs.) All the best wishes for mitigating their romantic intentions.... !

It is important you follow the steps for discouraging breeding.

If the steps in the link aluz provided do not seem to be working for you, then it is definitely best to separate the two into different cages
until they are out of breeding condition, as per Therm's and aluz's advice.
