Jenday Conure Tail Twitching
I have a beautiful and happy approximately 18 month old Jenday Conure (called Fish) who is the shine in my world. He (I never got him sexed, but always call him a boy) seems really happy, I give him a balanced pellet, seed, fruit and vege diet, he hardly ever screams, makes hilarious noises and gestures, cuddles and loves me to scratch and says a few words.
In other words, I don't think there's anything wrong with him, I'm just curious about this odd tail twitch that he's been doing. He's done it before, just occasionally, but today he seems to be doing it a lot! He's just sitting on his perch and his tail is wagging up and down really fast, and sometimes he's lifting it up a bit while he does it.
I also have two scaley brested lorikeets (who sleep and live in a separate cage of course, but they all come out to play together on the play gym and get along really well). Anyway, the lorikeets seem to be a bit frisky today (I never got them sexed either, but after today, I'm pretty sure I have a boy and a girl =P).
I wonder if maybe my Jenday's tail twitch has something to do with mating... I also wonder if perhaps he is a she if he's lifting his tail like that...
Can anybody enlighten me as to the cause of this comical habit my baby is entertaining me with today?
