I'm really glad you got a cage too, and good to hear Sprite likes it so much. I thought he would...they do like a place to call their own, a place they feel secure so they can rest without fear.
illusive, i think maybe LynnMarie's hubby went and brought home another bird without much input from lynn herself? Husbands....need i say more? LOL
LynnMarie, you're calling the new one a "her", if it's only 7 mos like you think, that is too young to tell one way or the other.
Hopefully you have 2 males there at least and hopefully they get along. Tess ran on to trouble along those lines when getting a 2nd male and I'm sure others have too. It depends on the birds. My 2 boys get along just fine and are happy together, and i know of others that have multiples that are happy together too. So don't give up hope on their getting along and being buddies...just know that it might not work out the way hubby hoped it would.
If you have a male and a female then...well it doesn't take a genius to figure out what that will lead to. Know that there is a lot more to breeding keets than you realize. It can be very dangerous for your female, and of course IF that happens you will have a half dozen or so babies to find homes for.
Tess is right about the training now that you have 2 birds. It will be almost impossible to bond and train ur 2nd bird as long as it's in with the other. And Sprite nay regress and ignore you too since he now has a bird bud to hang with.
Luck with all. My advice would be to separate them. They really should have been quarantined from each other anyway since at this point you have no idea whether one or the other may be sick and pass it along to the other. Esp with Sprite being found out in the elements...and Sparkle? coming from a pet store environment.
Pics would be GREAT!! Would love to see them. Maybe we can even help determine whether you have boys or girls there.
