That they do. As long as none of my boys activly feed it and keeps things PG (looking at you Maru) Im fine with him singing to whatever he wants.
Something random durring this chaotic time...i caved and started letting star and Max spend more time together. They were preening each other through the cage bars! Ice queen yellow chicken was getting scritches and giving scritches!
Full disclosure. My vet and I had a long talk about the two durring their biride wellness exams and she feels as long as no nesting area/supplies are given there isnt a ton to worry about. Star is on a solid diet and egg laying is a perfectly normal thing for hens to do. Budgie daddy and i have discussed it at great length on the topic of thr what ifs in a scenerio where they do live together on a more permanent basis. Im still not entirely on board with the idea, thus why they still don't live together full time, just when im home, but i also cant deny those two are bonded and putting max with star easea up on the agression issue max can causes with the boys. No. Max and star do not keep things PG. Even after an extended short day vacation on stars part. I also do NOT support the idea of activly encouraging the two and contributing more to the unwanted budgie population. But again they are so happy together and it isnt all just max trying to win her over.
Its not an easy call to make. I am still debating it myself. I am adamently against breeding the two, even on 'accadent'. However Max is the only one Star is sweet to. Its the easiest way to deal with the 'max is a jerk and star is all alone' issues, while also not complicating things further by bringing in another hen who star may or may not tolorate. Truth. Part of it is my own ethics that im battling. IF she were to lay potentiality fertal eggs, would i be willing to take the nessisary steps to insure they are not viable...and that is a deeply personal choice budgie daddy and I would make If it were to ever happen. I feel like a monster considering it but i have it stuck in my mind that at least very early on one cant even tell if the eggs are fertal or not...
Ugh. Im thinking a lot about what to do. Please dont stone me for opting to let the two live together. My goal is to have happy chickens not baby chickens but those two just gotta go put on an x rated show whenever they are together, its their biology.
Also its spring time for the other boys. Maru lost his devider bar lover when the boys all moved in together but a few weeks back i got a hell of a laugh watching ziggy try to get onto Marus back. Maru did a bad touch scream and tried to run away....taking ziggy along for a ride on his tail! Things have since calmed down between those two.
Stay safe and healthy everyone! We are doing ok here but koodies 19 is scary stuff.
