Someone please tell me why my male parakeets are trying to mate? adult content

Does this mean they are gay? Seriously! What's up with that?

  • HeatherReneeB, that's exactly what I was going to say--if you're sure they're both males (which you can determine by the color of the cere or skin above the beak), then they are playing or fighting to figure out who the baddest bird on the block is.

  • No they arent gay. It's probably just mating season.

  • What are they doing that makes you think they're trying to mate? I used to have a few male parakeets and they were very friendly with each other, even hooking beaks sometimes when playing, but I don't think it was a sexual thing with mine.

    They are not gay, parakeets are social animals.. so pruning each other, or even fighting is normal.

  • Could it be a dominance thing?

  • To answer the other intelligent ppl's question: they are flying on top of each other. I was told this was mating.

  • Are you sure they are both male?

    If they are, then no, they are trying to determine who is dominate. They are not mating.
