Faerybee yes A.J. does not pay any attention to the tiels.i 'm home with the birds all day long 7 days a week. And yes i know there is a possibility that A.J. will not like the new bird, if that happens i will keep the new bird in the quarantine cage its big enough for one. Plus A.J. is not really bonded to me at all. He just seams like he does not need people company he is just happy to sit in his cage and play and talk to his toys or the bird in the mirror. This why i was going to get him a friend of his own so they can just be birds and hopefully bond to each other.
