Congratulations! Looks like we've got a few folks on the forums who have a new fid to introduce to the family. I hope we can all learn from each other as we compare notes.

So far we're having similar experiences with Yoda and Trigger. Sometimes they ignore each other and just play with their own things. Other times Trigger wants to play with Yoda and Yoda gets scared. Other times Yoda tried to claim whatever Trigger is on or interested in and the Trigger is scared. We have to watch them very closely at all times, naturally. I'm hoping they chill out over time.

Good luck with yours!

Re: Biggest mistake of my life...or best thing I've ever done.

Still working on the name, clark is for clark kent...I was thinking something else from DC right now general ZOD seems apt but until I can figure out the sex i dunno.

if a girl kara (supergirl)
lois
general zod
Jimmy (olsen)
Flash
Arrow
hawkman

etc.etc.

Right now the little one was tired so I put him upstairs in the cage while I spend time bonding with clark.

Clark doesn't need a cage he has lots of places he likes to sleep like inside drawers so I'm not worried about keeping them separated till they get along. I just hope the little guy relaxes a bit. Clark has been real chill about it, so I'm not to worried.

Re: Biggest mistake of my life...or best thing I've ever done.

Congrats, heís pretty darn cute!

Most of mine cannot share a shoulder - Baby and Tango can, but they also share a cage. The others....NOPE....all good on different shoulders but they seem to have a 6Ē barrier that triggers a scuffle. What Iíve done with each new addition is keep them at a distance that they can watch/ignore each other and get used to the presence without feeling like they need to protect anything (staying away from cages and personal spaces). I also have been careful to give make sure that my current birds get out of cage first, get treats first, etc to prevent jealousy of the newcomer. Seems to have worked for the most part. Some will never be friends, but they are all okay out together as long as they stay out of each othersí personal space . Just take it slow and donít force interaction...theyíll be fine. Canít wait to hear what you name him!

Re: Biggest mistake of my life...or best thing I've ever done.

Kara seems a nice, unique name for a fid. ZOD sound cool, too

Nice addition to your flock. Hopefully you all will get well together!

Re: Biggest mistake of my life...or best thing I've ever done.

things are getting better......

Clark has done a few dominance moves where he puts his foot on the new guy now that they accept each other, but I think everything will work out.

Re: Biggest mistake of my life...or best thing I've ever done.

So the new little guy is definitely a troublemaker, I just had to put 6 keys back on my keyboard and I had to chase him around to get one of the keys....the delete key isn't snapping back on right...... Ended up putting a paper towel over the keyboard.

But they are being sweeter with one another.

Ha ha, just be glad he's only a gcc! If I let Bo or Gus anywhere near my keyboard, I doubt there would be identifiable keys left to put back on.

It's good that they are being sweeter with each other though. It really does make it easier when they get along outside of the cage. Just don't let your guard down, especially as they both get older.
