Hi,

I think I’ve read that both male and female peachfaced lovebirds carry paper, leaves and other nesting material stuffed in their rump feathers. I wouldn’t get too hung up on it. He’s already pink and yellow. A paper skirt doesn’t make much difference.

Perfume is bad for birds. Usually stronger perfume is worse. Essential oils can also be dangerous. Scents in general are dangerous for birds.

Both male and female lovies carry nesting material that way. Not hormonal behavior (mostly), just what they do.
And perfume absolutely should not be used around birds.
