Just an update on Cas's aggressive behavior: after a week of 14 hours of darkness he 'loves' me again!!! He's making happy noises when he sits on my arm and he lets me give him love and head scratchies! Just a quick behavior question, he still masturbates on his food bowl... Should I leave him be or should I do something? He's my first and only bird so I'm not sure what to do here. For future reference, is this the right place for behavior questions?

Thanks so much

Yay! I'm glad it's helped you!

Masturation is alright sometimes, it can just feel good, but sometimes it can also be problematic. When Beaker masturbates, he acts like a jerk. On the other side, I had a lovebird that did it frequently and nothing about him changed at all, it was just fun to him, so in his case I didn't see any harm in it
