Post: New Keet

    Hi guys. A friend of mine had a single parakeet after her
    other one died. It's been a while now and her keet was
    looking depressed. She didn't want to get another keet so
    we decided to try and put it in with my two keets. I have
    a male and female and the new keet is a male. I let them
    see each other for a little while and then yesterday
    morning I put them together. I sat and watched the cage
    almost the whole day, just to be sure everything was
    working out and all keets were able to eat. Well,
    everything seems fine but the two males now seem to be
    courting. Yesterday it seemed my male was being a little
    more aggressive, I figured he was showing the new guy that
    the female was his. So I watched and they settled down a
    bit. Today they seem to be courting and the female is
    sitting all by herself. It's really cute. They're flying
    around, chirping at each other. Could it be that because
    the female is older (6) and the two males are both younger
    (3), that they thing they are more compatable that either
    one with the female? Doesn't this go against all rules of
    nature? I though two males would only do this if their
    was no female. Has anyone else experienced this? I'm
    glad the set up is working out because my friends keet was
    looking pretty bad before we moved him to my house. He
    was lonely and his cage was a lot smaller than mine.
    Thanks for any info.
