Rep Power: 6
Raised together early enough, you could avoid most aggression problems between the two. But regardless, they would need to be constantly watched. I raised Reptar from the earliest I was able around my cockatiels, hand raised him the last few weeks, I was trying to avoid the GCC aggression later on. Regardless, he reigns king and is still a bully, for no reason since no one challenges him. More like regular flock squabble type issues, hes just too much stronger.
With a WFA, thats a whole other issue. A cockatiel seems like it would work better of the two, but wouldn't be ideal with an amazon. They could learn to tolerate one another given enough space to retreat, I've seen it done but rarely does it work out, theres just such a huge size difference between the two. Reptar hates the living guts out of my newest cockatiel and she can't even be kept in my room anymore. He would get to her through the cage bars. There's two sides, you can't predict anything with birds.
