Default Anyone got hormonal birds?

Cheerio is extra nippy and wants to constantly masturbate on my head. Is anyone else dealing with horny birds, or is it just me?

Joey is a bit nippy too. He likes to sit on the front of the back of the couch, behind my head. The last couple days he has been biting at my hair.

We're off on vacation in the morning for 2 1/2 weeks, so mom is going to watch him and gets to have the fun.

Coco has been trying to rub his butt on my hand and Cheeky has been clucking like a chicken with her tail in the air. Nothing seems to work to calm Coco's hormones - he's always feeling randy but it's not too much of a problem - and a good cage rearrange once every few weeks throws Cheeky off her egg-laying cycle.

Jaid is kind of. He masturbates (terribly, might I add), but he's naturally always angry anyway, so his hormonal behavior isn't really too different. He's been more nippy, but other than that, he's not too bad

My breeders just had a stint that they're coming out of. Sideswipe was a randy little brat and would ignore his mate for a perch that I had to eventually remove, LOL. After a day or two with early bed times and the hormones seem to have calmed a bit. Thank heavens!

No hormones here, but a big bad molt
