Hi,

it may seem strange to ask but I just want to check if someone can help me understand.

I adopted a male Cockatiel a 1 year ago. He his about 10 to 12 years old according to the people that gave it to me. He his very loud. Hi like to masturbate lots of time a day and I cannot remove his mirror without him to go crazy...

I give him attention every evening and during the week-end. He is very quiet if I take him with me in my bed or on the sofa or in the kitchen. But when in is cage he is screaming. Some people told me to get a female. So I did.

I now have a 4 year old female. Very affective and quiet. She wants to be friend with my male but the male is ignoring her. She already has laid 6 eggs the first week a got her.

This week-end, I put away my male's mirror. I expected that it would be more interrested in the female. But this week-end was terrible. He was screaming from morning to evening if I dont take him on me. I know he is looking for his mirror but I dont want to give him. My goal his to put the 2 birds in the same cage and help quiet the male.

But my male doesn't seem to like the female....

So, is it possible that he his gay ?

After a few days, it is getting better, less scream and more songs... He goes out of the case more easy now without the mirror. But I think he has developped an obsession with a wood bar. Strange bird...

He is accepting the female in his environnement but no kissing yet !!!

So I agree on the fact that it is unhealty to let a mirror in the cage. The bird seems happier now even if he lost the "reflection friend"
