Fighting


I’ve got two 6 month old sisters
One is dominated over the other and is bullying her.
The cage is large so they can have their own space but it’s like the dominant one just doesn’t won’t her in there at all
Is it best to separate them into two cages


Answer:

Hi Debra,

You didn’t mention the species, but yes, I would separate them. Some birds simply do not get along. They don’t have a concept of brothers or sisters or any relation. Related birds will breed in captivity if you let them. For her own reasons, the one bird doesn’t like the other, so it is better for both of them to get their own space.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,

Brenda
