Well, I finally put Rio and Dorian together. I've had Dorian and his little cage in my room next to Rio's cage for a week. They have chirped back and forth at each other frequently. Today, I lured Dorian out of his cage with food, of course. I was planning to put him on a perch that I have outside the door and see what would happen. Well, he ate for a few minutes, then noticed that the door to the cage was open. He immediately flew in. I put my hand in to continue feeding him. Rio noticed and started to approach me. I got some seed in my other hand and they both ate for a minute.
Rio started hopping around the cage playing with all his toys-some I've never seen him play with before. It was almost like he was showing "the new kid" around-or claiming them all as his (LOL). Dorian wants to get closer to Rio, but Rio is still uncertain. So, every time Dorian sidles over toward Rio, he will fly away. But I'm happy to see that they are not fighting. I will keep a close watch this weekend. I hope they are going to be besties! And I hope they will include me!
This is the closest Rio will let Dorian get.
