My husband wants to get another cockatiel. She will be hand tamed. I don't know whether we should put her in with the not-so-tame one, the tame one or by herself. Any opinions? Thanks.

She could be a good influence on the not so tame bird but you don't want to put them together right away. The new bird should be quarantined for 30 to 60 days. It's always a good idea to have an extra cage anyway. You never know!

Thanks. I had planned on quarantinning her but I just wasn't sure whether she should actually stay by herself, with Smokey (the not-so-tame one) or Jo-Jo (the tame one). I don't want Jo-Jo to become attached to her & not us. We are trying to tame Smokey & she is slowly coming around. She finally has come out of her cage by herself. We are new at this & just want to do everything right for the birds. We love them all already. Thanks again.
