My lovely other bird Squawky Macaw has been with me for several years now. He talks like mad and can do a lot of funny tricks and dancing. But he has been very silent since Peta arrived. Hardly moves either. Once Peta was flying around out of cage and landed on his head, but not much response even then. Could he be jealous? Here he is with a favourite cracker treat earlier before Peta arrived. Should I be worried?

Haha, I don't think you need to worry, Squawky will surely get used to Peta and since he is a special kind of macaw they can even play together and share the cracker.

That's such a big relief! I thought perhaps because of missing the quarantine, he was really ill with something.
It will be great to watch them play together, if you really think that's safe. Didn't think a cracker was too good for budgies?
Will keep you posted with the progress.

Do you think it would help him to replace his batteries? Or would that completely freak him out? Just don't know what to do.

Thank you for your advice, Pegg. It really helps to have support for these difficult decisions. It involves serious internal surgery so perhaps I should get some new batteries first.

Lol, Ann! Your Macaw is precious!

I actually think you should be very careful when letting these too interact. Don't forget how small budgies are!!! And they might fight over the cracker and it could be a disaster!!!!
And I hope these two aren't sharing a cage! :O

What a wonderful post! Squawky is a very handsome fellow.
I imagine since he's needing serious internal surgery at the moment the problem has inhibited his activity quite a bit.

Perhaps after the surgery if you begin spending a bit more time with Squawky he'll come to realize Peta can be a good friend to him. (I'm sure he's very jealous of her currently).

I look forward to seeing more pictures of your two beauties soon!

I'm sure Squawky will do just fine during the surgery and surely it'll help him to find his voice a little more

Peeta will likely love getting to know him and perhaps he'll even share his cracker with her!

I look forward to hearing how the two get on!
