same cage

If the one parrot does not want another bird in his/her cage, then you have to respect your bird's decision. If birds are different species, then it is just as well as they normally don't get along that well in same cage. Birds can be best of friends while each has their own space and become adversaries when we try and put them together in same cage. Also, a cage for two larger parrots needs to be twice to three times as large as the cage for one, and they both need food, water and treat bowls. I say, let it go for now and maybe later you can try again or not.

Just make sure both have a large enough cage filled with safe natural wood branches perches, safe toys sized appropriately for them with no sharp points ot anything on which they can become injured.Cages should be roomy enough for birds to spread out their wings fully and flap if they want to. The dimensions usually given for size of cages for parrots are too small. Double or triple those dimensions, and you will be somewhere in the right ball park. Even birds that come out a lot need a cage that has an "open" feeling about it. Too small cages for the larger parrots has resulted in mental illness just as it would with us if we were placed into a small room with no where to go. Always put yourself in your bird's place if you can visualize being so small where the world is such a scarey place. Their cage is their sanctuary, and so it needs to be comfortable, safe and roomy.

They may get along fine when out of cage playing on a playtop or on a standing perch. Just don't push the TOGETHERNESS as this can result in accident and injury.
