I have a couple quick questions for ya'll.
My wife and I have had our M2 for about three years now. We also have an African Grey, and an Amazon (we rescued him about a year ago). All three birds live in a year around bird room that I built for them. It's about 16x18, three of the walls are big glass windows, and they have a big homemade play gym that they basically all hang out on. Their cages have been moved to the garage by the way, the bird room is now the cage. I feel like I'm rambling, I'm trying to give as much information as possible to help you guys get a vision
The M2 and Grey are both 4 years old, and the Amazon is about 15.
The M2 and Amazon are males and the Grey is a female.
The M2 and Amazon have become BEST BUDDIES. The includes a lot of the Amazon "preening" the M2 (this is a one sided relationship BTW, the M2 LOVES the attention but is giving no return favors)
My question is this: Will this help or hurt the Hormonal Problems that all Cockatoos go through? My wife and I concentrate very hard on the "no touching below the neck" rule. We've also found that now that he's part of a "flock" (meaning the other birds) that he's not seeing us as his mates and the Too aggression isn't as unpredictable as it used to be. We obviously give them all attention but try to limit it for this reason, we want him to concentrate on his relationships with his "flock"..
I'll stop now
