bonding

Hey all,

So I have a green-cheek conure who is about 6yrs old. I also have two parakeets. The conure is very attached to me but does not bond with the parakeets at all, even after about two years.

A friend knows of someone she works with who is looking for a good home for a senegal parrot and asked if I would be interested. At first I said no, but after thinking about it, I would really like to find a bird my green-cheek would bond with. I give her several hours of attention every evening but feel bad that she is basically alone all day while I am at work as she will have nothing to do with the parakeets.

The senegal is about one year old and were not sure about the sex. From what little I have seen and heard it does well with both people and other birds. So Im hoping some of that would rub off on my green-cheek.

I would also probably give the parakeets to my parents as they have a cockatiel and a sunroom the parakeets love to fly around in when I am out of town. So it would just be the green-cheek and senegal at my place.

I know there is a good chance my green-cheek just will not bond with another bird, but I wanted to ask and see if anyone thought there might be a better chance she would bond with a bird like a senegal vs the parakeets.

TIA,
-Nathan

Re: bonding

Can you try introducing the GCC and the senegal before you decide? Seeing how they react to one another may give you a good idea of whether they will get along.

They need not be buds right away - that takes time, but if they are interested/intrigued by the other one's presence that would suggest they will interact.
