Our little guy displayed some strange behaviour for the first time last night, and we havne't a clue whether it's worrisome or not.
He's 2 years old, in perfect health seemingly, good poos, great feathers, totally clean vent. He's eating well, not drinking much. He's lively as anything and altogether bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.
So imagine my suprise when last night he started vigourously rubbing his rear on his perch! He stood on one foot, grabbed onto a hanging toy with the other, and rubbed and rubbed and rubbed like crazy!
At first we just thought he was swinging wierdly, but then I peered closer and his butt was definately in contact with the perch, so I concluded that was the desired effect. I checked his rear and it's perfectly clean.
What the heck is going on? He's never done anything like this before!
I figure it's either worms (but then wouldn't he have some indications around his vent or in his poo?) or some mating thing.
I've done a search on the forums but can't find any info - can someone help?
