so theyre a bonded "pair" but i am thinking they may be a same gender pair despite the tests. munch is guaranteed girl. no ifs ands ors about it. i am thinking maybe mango is a girl.... hes been getting an attitude these last few months. hes presented himself like a female to munch and let munch mate with him...
since i gave them a tray in their cage filled with bedding for a nest, mango is the one in it most, hunkered down and rearranging bedding. munch too, but mango is there a little longer. both doing the same thing... from what ive read, males dont sit in the nest like that.
but oddest of all, since caging them together, they do not mate with eachother anymore.
munch doesnt present herself and neither does mango since that one time hes done it.
however.... i am very confused by this particular behaviour. they have eachother, theyve mated in the past, theyve been doing it for weeks outside of the cage every chance they got, they would even go back into one of their cages and mate when they were separated. now theyre together, they dont. however both will mate with their swing at the same time?
has ANYONE ever seen this before?
also mango spends his time in the nest, not munch. i thought male lovebirds dont do that.... lol
just thought i'd share a laugh at this...
