Thread: Introducing youg lovebird to older ones

    Default Introducing youg lovebird to older ones

    Hi all! So my Berry has turned 6 weeks old and has started flying though he mostly sticks to me like velcro. I have been trying to get my 3 older lovebirds (around 3 to 4 mos age) to get to know him. I started placing Berry in a cage beside the others last week in the hopes that they would get to know each other. I would also let Berry have some one on one time with each of the older ones every day. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be any progress. The others are still mean towards him and would try to attack him whenever they can. Coco actually flew from my shoulder to the hand Berry was on and tried to bite him. Even Lemon who used to be the only one nice to him has started bullying him. No biting but Lemon would try to "ride" his back all the time.

    Is there hope? Is there anything I can do? I would really like for all of them to get along and be together in the big flight cage. I feel bad for Berry being all alone in his cage.

    Any advise would be appreciated.

    Berry is still very much a baby and needs time to mature before you introduce him/her to the rest of the flock. He is vulnerable and they take advantage of that. Best thing to do is let him fly and have the others locked up when he's out. They can seriously injure him so you need to be careful.

    There are no bad birds, just misunderstood ones.
