Hi Chelsie!

It sounds like you didn't quarantine your new bird from your two boys, right?

Since it seems they've already met, I still would seperate them for a while and let your new girl settle into her new home.

Adventurous or not, it's always best to allow a new bird to acclimate herself into a new environment, usually achieved through quarantine.

Quarantine is used to prevent new birds from spreading sickness they may be hiding to the other birds. Because in 45 days, all illnesses hidden or not hidden would become present, that is the timeframe recommended for quarantine.

Be sure to tame everyone at their own pace, and I wouldn't take away their seed completely. If you'd like to get your new bird to eat out of your hand, taming and getting her used to your hand first is the best option, and then you can slowly begin offering her seed.

Best of luck! :wave:
