    I think it would just be practice. Mine have done that a couple times no mating.

    Quick question. I have two royal palms about fifteen weeks old ( I'm told). They're supposedly male and female. To me the only difference between the two is one is slightly larger. Is it too early too tell. They are just starting to feather in under the wings. there is no difference in the caruncle on the neck of either bird.Help please!

    It just practice, the Tom's won't be sexually mature until 9 months to a years old.
