We're taking the plunge and we're going to re-home a 2 year Quaker named Thor. Now, Thor grew up with another Quaker, Loki. Yeah, great names. We're reluctant to separate the two. We don't have a tons of room, but we place two cages in the same room. My thought here was having the two cages across the room from each other, rather than right next to each other.
So, if we do do this and get both, is there any concerns with having two cages in the same room. I'm assuming they were in a similar situation before, I just want to make them as happy as possible.
Two cages in the same room shouldn't present any special problems. My two parrots' cages are just two feet apart in the living room. They like to watch each other and sometimes talk to each other, and I can talk to them and give them both some attention at the same time.
I have four in the same room together. Each has his/her own cage but the doors are always open and they're free to fly around. It's a bird-safe room with no outside access. Two Quakers, a tiel and a budgie, who have lived together for several years and worked out their differences long ago. The budgie and one Quaker sleep in the Quaker's cage together (door open) and are best buds.
Quaker Clyde; tiel Freddie; Rocky 'Too; dog, Jack; too many fish to list.
