(I apologize if this is the wrong sub forum for this thread... I wasn't sure of the appropriate place.)
I currently care for a three year-old flighted Pacific parrotlet who has been with me for 14 months. We spend all day every day together (I work from home). We are bonded, for lack of a better term. She is a feisty bird, though generally gentle and relatively low maintenance--something of a shoulder potato.
All being as it is now, I will be bringing home two clipped green-cheeked conures tomorrow. They are bonded birds, both two years-old and healthy. These birds are extremely affectionate and sociable with humans. I admit to being a touch bowled over by their friendly initial reaction and delightful further interaction with me (hence my choosing to bring them home).
I am hoping to find advice, suggestions, and insights into how best to approach introductions, housing, etc. Even telling me this is a very bad idea will be met with appreciation.
Some bits of info:
I live alone (besides the bird).
The parrotlet is dark from 4pm to 6am every night (her choice). The conures are on a 9pm to 9am schedule.
The parrotlet lives in the main room of the house. I have a bedroom which can be used for birdy purposes if needed (while flighted, the parrotlet never ventures into the bedroom).
I have a lot of time and attention to dedicate to this endeavor, literally all day every day.
Any advice and ideas would be sincerely cherished. While I have been given some good stuff from others involved in this exchange, I would love to absorb others' experiences and insights.
Edit: I should express my desire: I would like for these birds to live together in harmony, or as close to it as possible. It would be delightful if all birds could consider my home theirs during all waking hours, with cages being more of an open refuge and sleeping space (as my parrotlet has it now). I'm hoping to work towards a dynamic where the parrotlet does not feel threatened and/or territorial and the conures feel welcome to be free in the house. If this is an absurd idea, I would like to be told so. (I've likely watched too many YouTube videos where this reality appears to exist
