My guys purr when they're happy, when they're snuggled up together in the nestbox, when they're ripping up nesting material, and when they're doing territorial threat displays. So it's definitely connected to territorial and breeding behavior, and a sign of a happy confident bird. You have to take it in context, to figure out what they are saying. I I love hearing them purr, it's a neat sound.
