Favorite color?

Do your birds prefer certain colors?

I don't think my budgies care. If there do they haven't let me know.

My parrotlet seems to prefer blue. So did my last plet.

My GCC likes orange or pink.

My guess is its related to mating preferences. Since budgies think ultra violet is sexy, they wouldn't necessarilt prefer a color in our visual spectrum. Male parrotlets show off their blue during mating dances. I'm not sure about gccs but thy have orange and red highlights so I'm guessing that is also for attracting a mate.

Do your birds prefer a color and is it one that would correspond to mating and attraction in their species?

Just something I was thinking about.
