My almost 6 month old male Peach-faced Lovebird Kiwi has been engaging in an odd behavior as of late (3-4 times so far). He has jumped onto my plush, cuddly blanket on my lap, spread his tail feathers, opened his wings slightly, and pivoted back and forth, rubbing his vent on my blanket. I posted a video of this behavior on a lovebird forum, and the consescus was that Kiwi was masturbating. According to my research, lovebirds don’t reach sexual maturity until 10 months of age. Since Kiwi is just shy of 6 months of age, could this behavior actually be masturbation?
