Did you notice that Tiki loves ♥
three different birds? Tiki was my very
first parrot and is 16 years old.
He talks very well and is now a breeder. His mate was Sparkles but I found her
down on aviary floor dead July 15, 2002. Tiki was very sad for many days. But
he finally started
coming around to being his self. I had found him another female and her name is
she is very timid and they are not getting along real well because of that. In
time they will
probably fall in love and have lots of babies!
10/27/02 ~ Update ~ Tiki and Jackie are now getting along pretty good now.
Tiki does not torment Jackie like he was. He does not chase after her anymore. I
see them sitting on the perch right near each other as they did not do that
before. Jackie now goes to the feed dish when Tiki is there.
One reason why they are probably doing better is because I had also moved them
from the cage in the Pionus aviary into the Macaw aviary. This is once
where Tiki was housed and he really likes it there. It is larger and has two
windows which let more light in than the other area where they were at. Jackie
does not feel closed in this cage; therefore letting her feel more at ease.
5/14/03 ~Update ~ Tiki and Jackie are really great with each other now.
Their nest box will be put in place in the next week. We'll see what
happens, not too sure if they will produce babies this season.
This is Muffin ~ she is a White Cap Pionus. We bought her as a
breeder. We have 2 male White Caps so we were going to pair her up with
one of them. It turns out that she is not getting along with either one of
them. First we put her in with first one, after a few days she was
terrified of the male. So I took her away from him. I let her be by
herself for a few days, then I put her in with the 2nd male, needless to say
they did not get along either. Muffin was a pet with the previous
She is very sweet and loving to me, she has her days where she is nippy to me. She has been in the house for a while
now. I will be bringing in one of the males from out side and put with
her. That may or may not work out. Neutral territories is sometimes
needed. I have noticed with the White caps in general, they seem to be a
little bit on the pushy side. I had recently took a new pair of White Caps
and was going to keep them in this large quarantine cage with a pair of Bronze
Wings, immediately the White Caps both went to the pair of Bronze Wings and
started tormenting them a lot. As a rule a new pair of birds going into a cage
of birds that have already been there, don't usually bother the ones that have
been there before them. There again I had to put the pair of White
Caps into a separate cage so they would not bother the Bronze Wings.
5/14/03 ~ Update on Muffin ~ She's off the hook! She got out of having to be
paired up with one of the male White Cap. She remains a pet and stays in
the house, she is very happy about that! The two male White Caps were
paired up with 2 other female White Caps that I had, as they were to be a pair
when I purchased them, but they both turned out to be two females, so guess what
~ I made proper pairs, that's great! Although they didn't think so, but
they are getting along much better, the males were giving the females a very bad
time. Let me tell you this ~ White Caps are pushy and are head
6/5/03 ~Both White Cap Breeder Pairs ~
recently paired up are getting along good now.
look very nice and are not tattered looking like they were for awhile.
They are now placed in the outside aviary along with all the other birds each in
their own caged area. I knew it would be a matter of time and they would
get along. I know it was rough on the females as the males would give them a bad
time. I felt like at times like splitting them a part as the male would chase
the female all around and she was afraid, but I figured if they could just get
past that hurtle then they would be okay and now they are they are.
Each pair is
peaceful with each other.
They mainly started getting along better when I put them in the outside aviary
as it gave them each a much larger area then the cages that they were in that I
had in the house. They are happy now. I put a nest box up in one
cage so far and have to put in the other one. I don't think they will get
to that point yet, but if not this breeding season, surely next year.
Top photo is one pair that you slightly see both. On right
photo is the other pair. You see barely see the female above the door.
