Re: Two female macaws
Posted by Rick on 12/13/08
Claudia, just as you, we have 2 SPOILED macaws, B&G, sharing
a large tree stand, they wouldn't have it any other way, and
at times need separating from each other.
They get along great for the most part, Male and Female,
feed each other, preen each other, etc., but have their
moments when they can't stand each other (jealousy,
annoyance). Then it's separation time, To 2 different
stands, side by side (out of reach) or even into other
rooms. We have stands in almost every room of the house.
Truer words never spoken (ensuring that they all stay on
their own tree... and What we do for our Feathered Friends).
My point is, it is wonderful you're getting a 2 treed stand
but, just as ours can climb down, ever so quickly too, and
roam to the next one, you may still have a time of it
keeping them separated, maybe not. Anyways, good luck. Seems
we NEVER stop re-doing and re-thinking for our birds play
areas and their happiness, and at the same token making less
clean up for ourselves. I'm all for that. But, it never
happens. We have a flinger in the family.
