Hormonal Behaviour in Alexandrine
Recently my Alexandrine has been showing some weird behaviour. Mostly he is standing on top of his cage. Whenever my family members approach him, he first goes close to them and then slowly walks to the other end of the cage, far away (he also has started doing this with me). He also steps up on hands when offered a safflower seed. He never used to do these things until a week ago. Today I introduced him to one of those toys which have some weight at the bottom so when pushed they stand right up. He was playing with it for a while and sometime later I saw him flashing his eyes doing what those male ringnecks do in YouTube videos nowadays. I have snatched that toy away from him. Is this hormonal behaviour and what should I do about it? Does it indicate that he is a male as females just become flat during hormonal changes (as i observed with my former ringnecks). I can send you a video if you want to.
