Why does my Bronze Wing Pionus Step on her White Cap cage mate?
Hello, I have a 6 year old female bronze wing Pi who likes to step on her 4 year old male white cap cage mate. By that, I mean, she raises her leg, and places it on his wing or his back, and then he begins to whine a little. It doesn't appear to hurt him, but he seems to be a little humiliated or dominated.
She also occasionally does this to her BFF, a 14 year old male lutino cockatiel, but he doesn't put up with it, and walks away. Am I correct in thinking it is a dominance ploy? Is there something I can do to discourage this behavior?
