    My experience is they do it every day. Getting preened or fed is more likely in my experience a first step in choosing a mate.

    When boomer was sick he hardly ate anything and if he did it would usually be because I would hold the food in my hand and he felt obligated to eat it. If your birds are sick there poops wouldnt be the same at all. It would either be all mixed together into a big blob of diarrhea or super wet with lots of liquids and dark, dark green on the inside with very little white. They wouldnt be cheeping or feeding each other either so I think your birds are just fine.
