Thanks Mr Peepers.
I am no expert. Just have a little bit of knowledge with Tiels. And do not do much in the way of training. More like they decide and I work with that.
First I guess is.
Welcome to the forum and bird guardianship.
I do welcome the laws that say you have to have more than one bird. Where this is fair on the human or not is debatable. And there are a lot of Happy Single birds in captivity.
Is this your first time with birds?
The bad news! Sometimes some birds do not like each other. And at best may learn to tolerate each other. Other times one may bully the other.
Only you by reading or learning to read their body language may be the best to decide on how to proceed.
The most times you will see it advised to get one bird work with that for a time, then add the second one.
Getting two at the same time and working them both can be done, if the circumstances are right.
You have also read that it is often said to work one at a time in a separate room. As the other would be a distraction.
You do not mention how long you have had these two.
Time and patience are on your side, let them settle and adjust to you. Birdy time is an unknown.
I have one female who was aviary born and parent raised, and who is clam around me.
I have another I even helped her mum feed her and something like 2.5yrs later is still stand offish.
I also have a young male, he came in at 6mt old, due to him bullying the Tiel they got him for to keep it company. So that one failed badly.
Here he is sweet as, loves cuddles and hanging out with Indy, who used to be an attack Tiel.
yes, it is my first time lol
they r both 4 months old, nd i had them for almost 2 mnths alrdy...they r pretty calm jst tht i can see they hesitate to come to me (they tend to look at each other befor goin near me for the millet)
the breeder i got em frm said they r frm the same clutch
my other concern is tht the other one tends to bully the other a lot, lyk blocking the other frm the feeder (altho there are two feeders)
i was jst wondering how to tame 1 at a time, bcoz when one is out of the cage, they both cry for each other (altho i did notice they stop after a while, but their crest is full up)
nd when they realize im nt taking them back to the cage, they fly off the perch/stick
thanks for the reply tho
