I had to move Eddie's cage into the same room with Miley for a couple of hours today, we were doing some work in the bedroom, and he finally got a good look at Miley. After they whistled at each other for about a half an hour we noticed that Eddie's cheek feathers (the orange part) were standing straight out the side of his face. They stood out like his crown on top of his head when he's excited. When I talked to him they smoothed back down, but when Miley chirped they rose back up. Sometimes his crown is up and sometimes it is relaxed. He never did this before with his old female Skuttle, but he did this all afternoon everytime she/he would acknowledge him. My dh thinks he's in love with her lol, and that means she/he is definately a girl. My daughter thinks it means Miley is a boy and Eddie is trying to show that he's king of the hill. Any thoughts? He's now back in the bedroom, but mad because we moved him back. Can't wait to see if he keeps this new trait up when they finally get to move into the same room permanately, but thought someone might have seen this before.
