Sharing is caring

My three sweet babies. I am so blessed to be able to have such awesome little birds. Each so different and perfect in their own way.

Oliver, parrotlet
Mina, linnie
Cozette, budgie

Gorgeous birds, amazing, that the parrotlet is so friendly sharing the millet with the others.
Many people have parrotlets that are nasty towards other birds.
In a German forum a keeper posted that a parrotlet bit an Aymara parakeet to death through the bars.

Yep that's how it can be with birds of different species. One minute they are angels together then next OMG what happened. I remember on the old linnie forum it happened to someone who let her birds play unsupervised because they were fine together when she was there. In disbelief she lost two of her birds to their legs and feet being chewed on by another species. Jelly Bean is that way. I also have to put a plastic crate on her cage top because if a linnies lands on her cage she starts biting at their feet faster than I can get there.

These 3 are never unsupervised. I don't trust my plet. Although for a plet, he is more docile than most. I am just letting them share a millet on a neutral territory right now for about 10 mins at a time---in hopes of associating each other with good things. I want to socialize them while they are young to at least accept each other. My plet will run from them in nuetral territories rather than fight...they actually chase him a bit because they are best friends and he is the outsider but they stop when I correct them. Plets are COMPLETELY different birds when it comes to their cage or their territory in general. I am not surprised hearing a story of a plet biting thru the cage. That is why his cage is on the other side of the room. My plet will attack if they touch his stuff, he will not flee in that situation. That's why they meet on neutral territory for small supervised increments only.

Thank you for sharing the photos of your adorable trio! I love all three of them, but Oliver really has my heart. I think it is great that you can get them together for some supervised play!

My red rumps really don't like my linnies; so any kind of supervised play time is not possible with my four birds. The birds get too upset -- they don't have any fun and I don't either. So I always love to see photos of other people's birds eating or playing together.

I thought it was just me! How'd he steal your heart so fast!? Lol, I love that guy even he is the most difficult of my birds (the others aren't difficult at all but still) and has bitten me more times than I can remember! When he snuggles me and kisses me, it fades away. He is such a love, let me tell you. Makes your heart melt. Plets love hard and hate hard too lol.

My Mina is warming up to me tho. She gave me one of those electrrlic hugs today and was snuggling me, jumped on my shoulder on her own! My budgie is not big on snuggles but wants kisses til the cows come home, lol. They are all so special.
