Hi Pam its Debbie in Calif.
I have the one 47 DYH male and then a YN female as well, I
had another amazon but he (BF) just wasnt happy here because
I would not let him have the YN female and he would try and
bite me everyday so I finally sold him for my
sanity .....BUT..... I still can hear how he is doing where
he is now which makes me very happy.
Anyhow my DYH hates my YN and I do have to keep them in
seperate rooms now. He just goes crazy if he hears her at
all and its weird because for 1 1/2 years they were ok
around each other but not anymore. They had cages next to
each other for about a year. But now he gets so excited and
so loud plus he gets kinda crazy and will even try to bite
me trying to get to her.
I do take them in the shower to sit on the doors...they are
so loud in there but its a neutral area and they get it out
of their system for a while and so far we have been lucky
they dont go after each other too bad. Mom and Mr. Stick are
very close just in case.
He isnt like that with the other birds in here just the YN
amazon so dont feel bad its not just your birds that are
brats that dont get along but its best to be safer than
sorry I know what you are saying. Hopefully somebody will
have a better answer for you on maybe what to try and I can
use it as well for my birds.
