As we all know only male parrotlets have blue rump and blue wing converts......however I am bit confused about my two birds......They are Blue Forpus parrotlets.........Both have blue rump and wing converts......however they have bonded in such a way that it looks like a proven pair......

I am confused as my friend says that it's a pair as it's not a normal blue forpus but he tells it's a mutation.........

Can 2 male parrotlets bond eachother?

Please guide me...........

Thanks..................................

Hi,

Yes, 2 males can bond as well as 2 females can bond.  This also includes "normal" mating behaviors such as mating with each other.  When I say mating with each other I have never had 2 males "mate" with each other, but I have had hens do this, one takes the "male" position and the other the "female" position.  My experience has only been with Pacifics.

Not sure if you still check here, as i see this post is 4 yrs old, but for anyone else who is wondering, your parrotlets are both males. A female blue wing WILL NOT HAVE blue on the wings OR rump - they are often confused with green rumps.

And yes they can bond like they are a pair. i'm sure you realize that by now, they are male...as you wouldnt have eggs..........
