I have a pair of barrabands that i'm trying to pair off. They are in adjoining pens at the moment with double wiring in between. She keeps asking him to feed her through the wire and he keeps bobing up and down and flashing his eyes the other side of the wire. If i open the door she can't get in fast enough and he can't get away from her fast enough. She chases him round the aviary and eventually he gets fed up and attacks her so i have to separate them again. Once separated she starts asking him to feed her and he starts bobbing and flashing his eyes again as though nothing has happened.
Is this normal behaviour for 2 adults when put together. They both had mates before and have lost them. The cock bird is 11 years and the hen is 5 years. He lost his mate 2 years ago and she lost hers last year. Thank you
