can you put new keets in with an older one?

    My lutino lost her mate months ago and I recently got 2 male keets. Can I put all 3 in the same cage? The cages are close together and they act like they are trying to get to one another. Any ideas appreciated.

    I would say supervised visiting to make sure there is no fighting,

    they might peck at each other to show whos boss but just keep an eye on them,

    if they are fighting to much separate them into their own cages,

    and wait another month or however long it takes,

    eventually they should all settle down and be best buds!

    Good Luck!

    Thank you I will do that. I've not had more than 2 at a time so didn't really know how to introduce them.
    I just got 2 more so now I have 5. Should I have an even number? I think I have more males but maybe they are just too young for me to tell.
    One hangs upside down and is so cute! I may have to name him Bruce Wayne aka batbird--lol

    OK... I opened the doors and put the cages together. They are flying in and out of both cages. I think they will get along in a bit.
