housing different birds together
by: Anonymous

I have a large custom built aviary. I house my birds together with no problems. My cockateil is 31 yrs old. The conure is 3, the indian ring neck 4 and the parakeet is 11. Each new bird was introduced slowly and a small cage with the new bird was hung inside the aviary for a month before releasing them together. The new one was put back in the small cage at night for a additional month and watched closely

Conure and IRN play together
by: Tracie

Yes, they can hurt each other even in front of you. You will get a feel for it after a while. Just be ready to rescue a bird, and be ready to get bit too. ;-)

After a few weeks you will know if they can play together in front of you without you playing referee. Some birds get along great and really enjoy each others company as long as neither bird goes into the others territory, like their cage or play with their toy etc.

can my sunconure mate an indian ringneck
by: Linda

Birds of different species cannot mate, and as Tracie said, plan on your birds being in their own cages with their own toys, food and water. The new bird will provide great company for your present bird while you are away, just do not put them in same cage regardless of size or species involved.

Conure and IRN together
by: Tracie

It would be great if you are wanting to get another bird for another cage that YOU want and that the birds can be around. Just don't expect to let them out together or put them in the same cage. The Indian Ring Neck could kill the conure in a flash.

There is never a guarantee that two birds of the same species, like two sun conures, will even get along. When you put a large bird and a small bird together or an aggressive species with a mellow species, you have to really be careful to make sure they enjoy each other's company.
