parrot wants to breed with me
My 8 year old yellow naped amazon who bonded to me and prefers me over anyone else in the family, suddenly wants to breed...with me and it's disturbing. Whenever I hold her she assumes the position and makes a crying noise.
It's different then when I would hold and pet her before. It's not an "i'm comfortable" noise. It's intense and her tail is up and it's gross. Even when I am close to the cage she tries to get me to hold her and then that's what she does. She also does this in her food dish and it is disturbing and it makes me not really want to hold her.
I feel bad for her. I know she wants to be a mommy bird, but I don't want to introduce a male because I know they mate/bond for life and I don't want 2 birds and she wouldnt like me if she bonded to a male. What should I do?
She hasn't laid any eggs, but her private opens and closes when her tails in the air and she's making that noise and I'm sorry to be graphic, but I just want her to stop it. Seriously, what do people do? will she stop doing this, or is this the new her from now on??
