At what age did your African grey reach sexual maturity?
I have a 5 year old cag that is exhibiting the hormonal head bobbing
practicing feeding, Lowering his wings Etc.
This us all new behavior and I was reading awhile ago that thus behavior is due to hormonal changes and sexual maturity which happens around this age
when did it happen with your greys?
And did they get nippy ?
A 5yr old grey is sexually mature. What goes on at that point doesn't apply to all sexually mature greys. They can all do different things because the intensity of those changes could be major or minor. A truly sexually mature grey is one that;s 6 yrs old. Some get nippy, others don't. It's best to not do so much interaction when a parrot is hormonal.
