cage sharing


hi guys. I have a 4 year old female Conure. we have recently bought home a 2 year old blue Indian ring-neck male (keeping them separate rooms at present) Can we put both birds into the one Big cage when they are sufficiently acquainted? If so what do we need to know?


Answer:

Hi Timothy.

If these are tame birds, I would not put them together or they are likely to bond with each other and not want to be handled anymore. Or since they are different species they may not get along at all.  You didn’t mention the species of conure but mot conures can be aggressive towards other birds and ringnecks tend to be more passive. Generally it is best for a bird to have its own cage.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,

Brenda
