Hey guys so I have had a cockatiel for about 6 years and I’ve recently got a conure to live in a separate cage. Do you guys have any suggestions to introduce these two birds? I’ve heard it’s possible for them to get along but I don’t want to take any chances!! They’ve already seen each other so that’s a start but I’m worried the conures going to be mean to the tiel. Any suggestions are great thank you so much!!

They will and can get along with time and careful supervision at first. If your tiel is free to roam around the room/area where your birds are located, sit and watch to see how he reacts when he hears the conure and is near or even standing on top of the conures cage.

When the conure is allowed out of the cage and comfortable with you and has on hands training then you can let him out as well and let the 2 birds hang out on top of one of the cages. Leave a tray/plate with a few assorted fresh foods and treats on the cage and allow the birds to eat together .... and they will. Birds (even different types) like to eat together its how flocks keep safe during a vulnerable time while eating and drink. Better to be in a bunch then alone ....

Stay in the room at all times when they are free and near each other. It's good to bee cautious. All in all I think you will have a great time watching them get to know each other and soon happily be friends.

As of now the conure does not like the tiel. She tries being near him and he tries to bite her and raises his wings but he doesn’t chase after her.
