Does your Female Amazon want to mate with you?

How often and what does she do?

Re: Does your Female Amazon want to mate with you?

Well I can't say much in the Amazon department but I think every female parrot species want to breed with their owner in hormonal time! My GCC Lilo wants me to be her mate but I say I am your mother not your boyfriend! Silly! But Amazons are more hormonal than most parrots. Cockatoos can get bad when their owner stimulates them to much by accident!

I find it weird that females have this behavior. Isn't this kind of behavior in other animals mostly from the males?

Re: Does your Female Amazon want to mate with you?

My blue front Kiwi has been such a cougar since I got her, it's been about a month. She is extremely naughty. I think her previous owner fed her to much sugar and carbs, so she seems to be an extreme case of hormonal.

Re: Does your Female Amazon want to mate with you?

My 15 year old nape would have 'at it' all day long if I'd let her. The thing is I do NOT let her. I try to distract her, even though I don't always succeed.

And my Hunter isn't very picky with whom she'd like to go to town. She tries it with me, hubby and even my sons (when they're home).

Re: Does your Female Amazon want to mate with you?

Maybe I could l offer some insight.
Unlike many other types of parrots , Amazon's will mate out of breeding season. Mating is one of several forms of bonding. Preening and allo feeding are also common forms of bonding. Playing is the most common form of bonding that we as human parrot mates encounter. If one of the bonding tools (forms) is unacceptable to you ,use another.In most cases if you don, t encourage mating and use other forms of bonding , then it shouldn't be a big issue. However if your hen is ever stimulated by peoples then it could be a hard habit to break. Such is the case with my long time pet hen nape who my exwife has ruined. She gets lovin on her mind ,,, it's hard to distract her. Realize that your hen is looking for reassurance and offer a more acceptable means.

Re: Does your Female Amazon want to mate with you?

I have not had this experience with my BFA...yet. Now, my U2 on the other hand.... My friend had her for about a month before I got her and I think she got her all hot and bothered as she would pet her everywhere! Back, tail, under her wings... She didn't know not to do that. Now that I have her we only pet her head/neck. But she really LOVES her toys...I mean really LOVES them...lol.

Re: Does your Female Amazon want to mate with you?

No. And I've had six of them. (two males, six females)

I have dealt with males who have a favorite person they court, and have dealt with the usual territorial issues that result from mating rituals. Males are worse than females in my opinion, at breeding season time. They make the nests. They defend the territory. They try and coax the female into the nest... and they get grumpy at times.

BUT during breeding season, my female red lored will occasionally go on hunger strike and demand to be hand fed. (Males feed the females after all.) As instinctive behaviors go, it's not so bad. For the most part she just gets more affectionate at breeding season. She wants to be handled more, not less.

My about to turn 42 year old lilac crowned was wild caught. Her buddy bird is my CAG. They are very close. They feed each other, and yes, they occasionally do the "wild thing"... She has no interest in people that way.

My 38 year old female BFA was so ridiculously bonded to me that breeding season didn't make any appreciable difference. She was a velcro bird from day 1.

Re: Does your Female Amazon want to mate with you?

I used to own a male blue fronted and he loooooved his rope perches. He also clucked kinda like a chicken when he was getting friendly with them. But if I stopped to watch what he was doing, he would stop doing it. Almost like he was self-conscious about it. ha ha
