The 3 Goffins are family and get along well, no competition with the single TAG. They have been in this environment for 11 years without incident or reason to curtail. Free to fly, it is fun to watch them choose where and with whom to hang out. On occasion the Goffins and TAG will land in close but respectful proximity.
Scott- I think your large flock is a perfect illustration of how some birds are ok to have more freedom and others need to be caged unless supervised. All your birds undoubtedly receive the same excellent, expert care in your home, but some are just more mischievous or donít play as well with others as individuals.

Re: Leaving your birds outside of their cage

I know my situation is rather fortunate and aberrant. So happy to have responsible parrots who get along and respect the four walls!
