Rio is a Male lovebird.http://talkcockatiels.com/showthread.php?t=27104 Just posting this here for some good information on mixing different bird species. Rio is a lovebird correct? If Rio ends up being female, hormones could definitely make him/her turn in a heartbeat. Always best to keep an eye on them.
Tiko dosent get too close to him all she did was feed him and sometimes they eat together and take naps and I trust that Tiko wouldnt hurt him.:bml:It's really not a good idea to let birds with such a big size difference interact with one another. It may seem that they like one another, but all it would take would be one accident or overstepped boundary for Tiko to snap and Rio to end up seriously injured or worse.
Rio was in her cage when Tiko was out like I said I dont let them be close to each other same as when the cockatiels are on her cage too.And Rocko was just hissing in that picture he dosent really like Rio and that was Loki's first introduction with him but she does that anyway when other birds come near her well of course not Rocko.And you forget my eye is on them all the time everywhere I go they go.It's really dangerous letting a small bird go into a large bird's cage. Birds are territorial about their cages and their things and may be aggressive to another bird entering their space. Please, for the good of your flock, listen to everyone telling you that this is a recipe for disaster.
P.S. both tiels look stressed and defensive in that picture. Please carefully supervise them with Rio also.
