Kakarikis and budgies
Just posting for some information as I can't find this conversation elsewhere.
I have two budgies and I've just recently got a 2 year old kakariki parrot. I did the whole quarantine thing along with some cage sorting and I now have Kakariki (Mango) in a very large cage and the two budgies (Winston and Maisie) in a medium cage so everyone has plenty of space
I was wondering how to go about getting them to meet and be friendly? The cages are next to one another so they have a good view of each other but at a safe distance. I've currently been letting them out separately and every time the budgies go near mango in his cage he lunges at them. Not super aggressively but as if to be like "go away."
I've read online in other forums that Kakarikis are gentle birds and i'm sure he'll get better once he's used to them, and be more welcoming when fully settled, but any advice would help tremendously! Thank you!
(Also sorry if this is posted in the incorrect place, i'm still getting used to this website)
