Meeting? Anything more to know? ?
i own a parakeet about 3 inches tall...Sam. His "birdy brother".Gabe... is a little bit chubbier and shorter. Sam is the more dominant bird of their full-size cage and Gabe follows with a good sense of holding his annoyance. I may soon be getting a Cockatiel, young and supposedly nice. i dont know much about the recently owned cockatiel but he seem nice.
If i do end up getting the cockatiel, how do introduce my dominant bird and 'not so dominant' bird to the supposedly nice bird with out gettign in harms route. i want it to be stress free and HOPEFULLY fun!
what are some ways i can make this first impression a good one? and what are some things i want to know about introducing birds? any websites i need to know about that will present information about cockatiels?
sorry, this is a lot but i need your back! thankx so much
I just recently made a informational site on cockatiels, it is in the Source box. Well, first you necessitate to quarantine your tiel for seven days, to make sure your tiel doesn't pass on anything to your budgies. And after explicitly done, you should put the cages a few inches away from each other. This instrument, they can 'talk' to each other, and know each other first. Then you can start play dates. Let the budgies and tiel out at alike time if the seem nice as neighbors. Do the play dates for roughly speaking a week, and if they are fine together, you might want to keep them as cage mate! This may distract them from you, but they will be friendly towards each other.
Set the cockatiel's cage near (no closer than a couple inches) the Parakeet cage and tolerate them adjust to each other. They all may decide to be buds, but whether not, at least they can't kill each other whether they're in separate cages.
