sharing the same cage

I forgot to add that my 4 birds are all boys, I feel that lowers the hormonal issues that could arise if I had a girl in the mix.

sharing the same cage
by: Anonymous

I have a huge 8 foot walk in cage with tons of toys, food bowls, water etc that I have had 2 macaws in and 2 male double yellowheads. Of course I gradually introduced them outside of the cage and watched the interaction with the big macaws and small birds. They successfully share this huge cage without arguements or battles. I feel partly its due to the gentle nature of all, all mature age by the way, AND the ROOMY cage they have that they can easily leave and find a area of their own if they want. Not to mention tons of different level perching options as well. I wouldn't have my birds sharing should I only have a small, regular cage. There just isn't room for personal space. Just my opinion from my own experience in 12 years of having my birds around.

Parrots share cage?

This is very possible, but you must make sure that you spend time with them outside of the cage together first. Getting them used to one another is most important. It may take a while and much patience.
I have an African Grey that loves to share a cage with a Conure. He has even been known to go inside of my Finch's cage and take a nap from time to time.

Parrots can share the same cage if they are the same type;cockatoos,or macaws, or amazons. I would not mix up the different types because of different personalities. Also,it is much better to have either two females together or a male and a female, but not two males,unless they were raised together. You did not specify what types of parrots you were trying to share or the sexes. Be careful because some breeds just don't get along. Be careful, you wouldn't want anyone getting hurt! Friendship and companionship mean a lot to birds with humans and birds.
