Weird lovebird behaviour?

I know this may sound really odd, but CJ sounds like he has chattering teeth. He chases his brother Pebbles and his dad Blackjack making this really odd clicking sound that sounds like something vibrating. I know he's making it with his beak though...

Is this a hormonal thing? Like a sexual frustrated dominant thing ? He's driving the other two nuts. Of the 6 lovebirds I've kept in total I've never heard anything like it... it's so strange! He's also be lunging at Blackjack a lot, not hurting each other but having a good bicker. When I move I'm going to seperate all three. Hopefully get them some lady friends but definitely seperate them

While I'm writing this CJ is running around on the floor shouting and screaming at Pebbles while Pebbles sits and eats. Blackjack is watching him

Haha bids are silly! If it's slower I think you are describing what Kona and Fred do all the time. They'll respond to me if I do it back. If it's quicker they do it when they're mad or irritated. That's just what I've found.


Kona-Green Quaker
Fred (so far)-Blue Quaker
I'll miss you, Scully-African Grey

I've been reading up on it and I think people have been calling them vibrating lovebirds they get really over excited and start shuddering like mad chattering their beak together

Neptune always makes that clicking sound with his beak when he is about to hump his rope toy
