I cant help the male with perching without getting bit by the female, would it be okay to put them in adjoining cages so I can safley work with one? The female will be a challenge but nothing I cant manage. They have also displayed some mating rituals, Im not sure if it is okay for them to mate. I know that they probably would but is it morally okay? Thank you all for your replies, I was on a diffent forum and no one answers.
Do you know if they were hand-reared, parent-reared, wild caught etc and what sort of upbringing they had.
The first thing I would do is get DNA tests done so you know what your dealing with.
On the mating I personally would not allow them to breed as they would not be pure bred, there is no need to breed them.
If the birds are bonded which is likely if they are showing mating behaviours you may stress them out by separating them even if you place the cages together.
You could try getting them out the cage one at a time and training them that way.
Yellow Naped are known for being hot headed especially during breeding season so you will have your work cut out for you with that one if you want to tame/ train them.
What do you want to get out of these birds?
With them being together for a year they will have bonded and will likely bond strongly with each other, you might never get a close bond with them as you are effectively the outsider.
