confused about my pineapple conures on and off behavior
It sounds like it will be fine and just take time. Your home is Atlas's territory and territory is important to birds he just has to accept her as part of the flock on his territory. Caging them separately is best, it will be best if they can decide they want to be friends and visit each others cages on their own rather than it being forced on them-which they are more likely to reject. I know of many people that have multiple gccs that are still tame and love their humans....he may not be as clingy but that is better for him emotionally anyway. And it is so heartwarming to see two birds together. Once you see it, you just feel horrible for not letting them have each other sooner. It is so heartwarming and they are funnier and more confident. It really brightens up their lives. Keep us updated and just let them go to each other. Try putting their cages next to each other and a method of visiting each other like a rope perch or a ladder connecting the cages. Of course stay in the room when you let them visit.
