We added two baby tiel's to our flock awhile back both around 6 months old now. A whiteface pied and a cinnamon pied. The cinnamon, Crash is male and the whiteface, Burn, is female (they haven't been dna sexed so these are guesses)
The problem is that I don't think they like each other very much. When I separate them, carrying them around the house, they call for one another. But they are very nippy towards each other when together. They don't seem to really hurt one another but they fight a lot and bite as soon as the other gets too close.
They do get time everyday out of the cage, about 3-4 hours.
So I've narrowed down a few options to what I think I should do:
Get another cage so they have separate cages, I'll leave the cages next to each other so they have company.
Buy a bigger cage (parrot size) so they have more room and don't get in each others faces so much. They currently are in a cage that is 80cm x 60cm x 90cm this is what the pet shop recommended
Write a post here and leave them be because someone will tell me its perfectly normal for cockatiels to fight and I'm being paranoid. :whistle:
Thanks in Advance
