Default Another Bird: Will She Mind?

Chippy has been making wonderful progress since we adopted her this summer! When we open her door she quickly hops to her special-made door perch to give us kisses & tell us all about her day! She has been such a great addition to our family.

I was recently asked to take in a Cockatiel for a friend of a friend. The bird is 7 years old, & seems to be used to people but does not come out of her house. They say they aren't home enough to spend time with her & feel bad.

I would love to take in the bird, but how would Chippy feel? I would NOT let them interact outside of their houses, but would need to keep them in the same room during the day when we are gone. (Cat proof, good window lighting, & its warmer!) Would Chippy regress in her progress with us? Would they ever get used to each other's company? (Again, not outside of cages.) What are the odds of them getting into screaming matches? Lol

There shouldn't be any issue with two birds in separate cages in one room.
Chippy may be jealous of the time you spend with the new cockatiel but if you give them both attention, she will adjust.

As far as screaming matches -- there is no answer to that.
It depends on the personality of each bird.

I'm so glad things are going well with Chippy! She sounds like such a fun bird.

I have two budgies and a cockatiel who all live in the same room. I keep them in this cage so that they are separated. I agree with FaeryBee, if you want to take in the cockatiel it should be fine to keep them in different cages in the same room.

If you ever did decide you want to try letting them out together, you may find that Chippy will want to bully or bother the cockatiel. My cockatiel doesn't like budgies - she is tolerant of them but finds them annoying and doesn't want to interact with them. My birds can all be out of the cage at the same time together, but I have to watch Freddy because he likes to chase the cockatiel around for fun. Connie pretty much leaves her alone. It really depends on the personalities of the individual birds.

Hi. I foster budgies for a local rescue and my cockatiel has made friends with some of them. He was the most upset of anybody when the first budgie got adopted. He now has another cockatiel as a buddy and can't be bothered with the budgies.

This is great, thank you so much for all of the feedback! I've learned some more about the Cockatiel, apparently she is more tame than Chippy was when we first got her. So we may be taking her in after Christmas!

That would be so great of you to give the cockatiel a new home! I hope it works out that you can!

Hazel came to live with us two days ago, & seems to be doing well! She is fairly quiet, I'm surprised. She & Chippy don't seem to mind each other, but there does seem to already be a little jealousy. Lol. Chippy also acts like she wants to fly to Hazel's cage!

I'm so glad you were able to take in Hazel! She's beautiful and I'm sure she's found an amazing home with your family

Is she currently in quarantine away from Chippy, or has she been cleared of illness recently?
