    Hey guys,

    I just need some advice I have a pair of sun conures in an aviary that has two separate sections next to each other. I have just brought a pair of nanday conures. Do you think it would be ok if I put the Nandays in the section next to the sun conures? They wont be able to see each other, but I'm worried that because they are both loud birds that they may deter each other from breeding. If anyone has any comments or experiences it would be greatly appreciated!

    Lol I hope I have not upset anyone, I guess I am speaking out so much about parrots.
    I have a sun conure,macaw and a cockatoo guess who's the loudest???? The sun conure is that tone just grabs you spine and your ear durms rattles!!!!

    Just think if they are in the wild, and the neighbors are very loud screamers, but so are they!!!!
    They will breed,when nature takes over, extra loud neighbors are not going to stop nature course.

    Do you how to handfeed babys? Please say yes!!! As I spoke up about feeding babys on my other post, its so very important to raise these babys, don't let the parents do all the work.

    All birds scream as there mate is sitting right next to them, that is called being a parrot lol its ok.their human flock is the one getting upset for the screaming, have you ever seen a parrot get mad, because,the others are screaming? I know I have not seen my flock get mad, LOL only the human flock gets mad.
    Enjoy your new flock members

    lol thanks so much that makes sense and yes I do know how to hand feed the babies atm I have two yellow-sided conures and two pineapple conures that I am hand feeding they are just over seven weeks old. They are from the same clutch (the mother is yellow-sided and the father is yellow sided split cinnamon) and they are a great breeding pair and the babies are so cute!

    What kind of macaw do you have?

    Can you show a picture of them? :p
    They sound wonderful.
    My dream is hand feeding a macaw, and watching the way they grow up, while spending the much needed time in showing them that we to are part of their flock.
    I might have that chance, I hope.
    Lol that email was long, I guess it still hurts, it helps to talk about it.but I don't talk about that on boards or any social net work.
