This is normal behaviour for birds.
They are not actually "kissing" in the sense that we humans understand it.

Two male budgies are the easiest pair to keep together. Two females will likely fight, as female birds are notoriously more aggressive than male birds (but not always, for example if they were raised together then they are unlikely to fight). A male and a female bird have a 50% chance of fighting occasionally, possibly resulting in some injuries. But two males together with no female to compete over will get along like brothers, whether they're actually siblings or not.

When two birds "kiss" each other, they are showing each other acceptance and affection. It's a sign of friendship in birds, not love as it is in humans. Two birds who are also close friends will also groom each other occasionally, huddle together on the perches and snuggle together when sleeping.
They will also share food. If they have a treat for example, they will often divide it up between the two of them and eat an equal amount of the treat each.

Birds will also do the same thing to their human companions, particularly parrots like the African Grey. They're just very affectionate creatures who care for each other.

Your two males are not in a homosexual relationship with each other. It's just something that birds do with really close pals. Birds are far more intelligent than we humans give them credit for. Studies have shown that some bird species can solve intermediate problem solving tasks quicker than humans.

Nothing to Worry About

It isn't really "kissing" as we call kissing. Parakeets are social animals and it's just a way of accepting other birds into the flock. No, they aren't gay.

Two parakeets, either hens or cocks or even of opposite sexes, will mutually groom and 'kiss' each other. They may actually feed one another by regurgitating food. This is truly normal behavior for birds that do not have access to a choice of other birds with which to interact.

They will also at times bob their heads at one another, which is part of a courting ritual, but it is harmless.

It's just part of parrot body language!!

It means that they love each other, but it isn't kissing its regurgitating seeds and putting them into the other's mouth.

Parakeets do not kiss. what you're thinking of is probably regurgitating. parakeets feed each other sometimes by regurgitating. they will turn their heads sideways and put their beaks together and one or them will regurgitate food into the others mouth. pretty gross eh?

Goldfish to not kiss each other. They may play, or bump into each other, but they do not kiss.

User Avatar

This is just about the same reason as straight people would kiss each other, because the two people love each other, have feelings for each other, or other various reasons.

User Avatar

they may groom each other, or "kiss" each other. ("kissing" is actually just regurgitating seeds and putting it into the other's beak) But this does not only happen between males and females. This can happen with a male and a male, or a female and a female.

Kiss one or both cheeks OR kiss OR kiss on the cheek OR kiss one another OR kiss each other on both cheeks OR kiss each other OR kiss each other on one or both cheeks. All these answers are acceptable on the Aventuras Supersite.

Sure, they can kiss each other on the lips. That means they love each other.

User Avatar

They generally don't kiss each other. Their equivalent to a kiss is preening each other. You can train them to give you a kiss. I have a male gray that does that.

When parakeets kiss?Well I think it's when they are lightly pecking at each others mouth (not aggressively) or when their beaks are touching. lol that's what I'm assuming, but when they are doing the action thenthat means they are in mating mode I THINK. :) good luck Signed. Echub Although it sometimes may look like they are pecking at each other, they are just feeding themselves and showing how they are getting along. If they are male and female they will do this and mate with each other at some point. :) Mystery Girl

Yes if you would ask them they would say No and then they would go to a corner and meet each other and french kiss for about 2 minutes and then they would touch each other inappropriately.

Parakeets and lovebirds all mate exactly the same way as all other birds - by "cloacal kiss".

For the same reason guys kiss each other, or a guy and a girl kiss each other. To show affection, to release passion, or just for fun.
