What are the mating behaviors of parakeets?

I have parakeets and think they are mating.


Answer by  LeeAnn (67)

The male will will repeatedly "bow" before the female and try to feed her. Also mutual grooming of the head feathers is a sign of the mating ritual.


Answer by  maxim (47)

Parakeets will become very active during their mating season. You will notice they will be much noiser than normal and may even become aggressive when you feed them or let them out of the cage. With parakeets, it is usually the female that is the aggressor towards the male. Acutal mating takes place several times a day.

Making sure a spacious cage is present for bonding and mating, allow your pair to spend time together. When the female allows the male to sit next to her, in her favorite spot, then intimacy develops. Head bobbing, stepping on or grasping her tail feathers is increased flirting and a prelude to mating. Soon mating should occur.

They will rub their beaks together and making chattering type sounds to each other. The male will begin feeding the female. The female will begin making a nest.
