Yes, they are quite quick about it once the 'foreplay' is done :lol:

:lol: Well, no, not as bad as that. For one thing, the hens are satisfied with the 'action' and the males do take excellent care of their mates and babies - and they keep on doing it 'till death do them part' so, all in all, even though they might not follow the Kama Sutra, they are good 'husbands'...

Except for what my flock is doing. When Sweetie died, Shadow claimed Tommy's mate, Tammy. Poor Tommy stays close in case she changed her mind. When she wanted to nest she went back to Tommy. Of course now that she gave up on nesting she went back to Shadow.
When Tweet was nesting I only saw her on the nest. I had to guess that Flutter was the dad. When Tweet died he claimed Lacy and did not hide the fact that she was his mate.
Maggie was a breeder bird who would not take a mate after hers died. When she came to me she enjoyed being in the flock with good food and companionship but for years would not take a mate. Andy followed her from the day I got him. She finally allowed him to perch beside her. They are a bonded pair but with no sex involved.
That is just some of what goes on in my flock.

Yes, it's different in captivity, Liz, I was talking about birds in the wild. It's different with pet parrots because they are almost never allowed the opportunity to choose from a pool of birds and the greatest majority of them are not allowed to learn proper behaviors from their parents and the rest of the flock. So, sometimes, they 'hook up' with a bird just because it's the only or the best choice at the moment but not necessarily the one they would have made if they had had a large pool of individuals to pick from. And, in captivity, there are threesome situations, too, which, as far as I know, doesn't happen in the wild. When I had Blue, he was the one always feeding Precie in her beak but it was Zeus who had sex with her because, apparently, he never did learn that part of his duties as husband was to feed his mate. Captivity brings on all kinds of aberrant behaviors...

Flash forward (or backward) to the poor debauched Rb, perched high on the drapes, ogling his gigantic featherless hen...
An extra chile for him tonight!

:lol: Funny thing is, whether a smell is good or not depends on the culture! Here, in USA, people who own parrots always say they smell good but, back home, we call it 'dirty parrot smell', isn't that something?!
