Heart wings

My one year old male ringneck (dna confirmed) does heart wings randomly but not in front of a mirror. Is this typical for the breed? My little male tiel does it constantly but he also has a little lady in the cage with him (I didnít mean to get a pair, I just wanted a cinnamon pied and it ended up being a hen). I saw where a male ringneck should do that pose in front of a mirror but I have yet to see him do that.

Re: Heart wings

Itís a flirtatious/attention grabbing pose. Hopefully he doesnít have a mirror to do it into in the first place since those just add to potential confusion and frustration.

Re: Heart wings

No, he doesnít have a mirror in his cage. I know they arenít good for birds to have. He does however have one when he goes into my bathroom with me. Itís a huge one and heís not close to it. He has a play stand he sits on while I put my makeup on. He was never inside a house at the former owner's home so I try to make him part of the routine. The other owner had an ďaviaryĒ outside the house so I wanted him to know that he is not going to be locked away in a room anymore.

Re: Heart wings

Mine does that occasionally, usually when something threatening happens, such as when I walked into his room while holding my backpack. I peaked in and said Hi Mango, then walked in and, when he saw the backpack, stood up tall, pinned his eyes, and made heart wings. I console him by saying It's OK Mango and he usually goes back to comfort.

Re: Heart wings

My Alexandrine does it occasionally to me when I walk into the room or if I look at him when I haven't for a while, like if I'm watching TV.

Is he doing it at you?

Re: Heart wings

He doesnít seem stressed when he does it and sometimes itís when Iím by him but other times itís when heís on his cage just out and hanging. I know heís still young so I didnít know what age ringnecks tend to do that assuming they mature later than cockatiels.
