I have 2 Quaker parrots!!! I have introduced them slowly however they now are together in a double cage!!! These Quakers are tolleriting each other but not best of friends however they bikker each other daily!!! They both know their tricks and now they won’t train together as there usual selves!!! Now that the younger one is trying to dominate now the older one!!! I feel so sorry for the older one now? But now I’m concerned for the older one!!! That has been a bit weird Just wondering if anyone has introduced a baby Quaker to a one that was 1 year old!!! So he was jeolous so bad but I gave him more attention!!!! But giving them both the exact same attention..... What can I do to bring the younger on back to say level with my older one?any advise would be much appreciated
Hi Sharon and welcome to the forum. I am sorry I do not have expertise owning two Quakers. From what I’ve read it is a very hard thing to do if you want them to still like you and there is also no guarantee they will like each other. You might need to put them back in two separate cages for now and continue working with each alone. Hopefully someone else can share some ideas with you too
Separating your two QPs is a good idea and worth trying. Separate but equal one-on-one time could help too. If one parrot was with you before the other, that one should get "first parrot" status and be the first to be greeted in the morning and the last to go to bed at night, first to get let out of the cage, first to be fed. That kind of thing is important to parrots.
