Does anyone have any advice about bringing home a 11 week Quaker parrot and a 11 week old lovebird they have been being raised together and they seam to love each other I think the lovebird thinks its a Quaker.
They are both 9 weeks old now and we are bringing them home in 2 weeks.
So we have time to get everything ready. I could really use some good advice before
We bring them home! Thanks so much

Lovebird and Quaker together
by: Tracie

From what I gather, you wish to house these birds together? If so, that is risky. Neither bird has reached sexual maturity, so their hormones have not kicked in.

It is possible they will continue to get along, but it is also possible that lovebird will irritate the Quaker and they may fight. You could lose one or both birds due to the injuries.

My advice is to put their cages next to each other, allow them to play outside their cages, closely supervised only, so that they can still play together.
