Default Where to put new babies?

So, my new babies are due to arrive some time over the next week and I'm trying to decide where to put everyone.

Right now, Miss Marple is right beside me in our upstairs "computer room" and it's been a great location for bonding and taming.

Her gym is on the desk next to me and she happily flies back and forth from her cage to her gym.

I WAS planning to put Miss Marple temporarily in a main floor room where my younger son plays video games and put the new babies beside me so that I can start training and bonding with them.

But I'm feeling a bit guilty tonight - she's so comfortable and happy up here.

Maybe I should put them in the temporary location and work with the babies downstairs? Then when quarantine is over, they can join her up here and I'll keep working with all three.

Which would be better do you think?

This is a hard one. Where ever you decide to put them, you are going to need to split your time between them and Miss Marple.

I do this everyday myself as I have my budgies downstairs and my lovebirds upstairs now. I spend a couple hours downstairs, then move upstairs for a couple of hours, the back downstairs....

Since Miss Marple loves her current location, perhaps it would be better to put the babies in the main floor room. Will you be able to give them enough interaction if they are there?

Thanks FaeryBee,

I will certainly devote the time to whichever bird(s) are in the other room.

I guess just by getting these new ones, I'm taking a chance on Miss Marps backsliding in her tameness, so I'm probably best to give the new ones the intensive time that she had and then work on maintaining her in the other room.

I guess I won't know 100% until they're here and see how it all goes...

You're correct -- it is always hard to predict how things will work out and I know you'll spend the necessary time with all of them.

It shouldn't effect her tameness while they are not together but if/when you eventually put them all together it will somewhat...
