i have a normal gray that i have had for 1 1/2 years now. he loves his whistles and making noise.. I figured i would get him a friend.. as i am not very smart when it comes to this... i have been reading anything i can find on breeding and just cockatiels in general... But my Q is my little guy and his new girl dont seem to like one another sometimes she is ok and other times he is ok... they nip at eachother when they get to close but then at times they get close and my guy starts whistleing and singing to her.. but for the most part they keep their distence from each other.. please help any one....

ya, give it some time. I am not a big fan of getting two of the same breed due to I like being able to bond with them better with me. I have a cockatiel and a parakeet and they have their own cage and keep each other company thought my parakeet tortures the cockatiel when ever she has an opportunity.

If you have an extra cage, I'd say have them have their own space and get to know each other better that way, but I could be wrong. Remember, birds like their space so the new addition might be an adjustment.

Are they in the same cage, Chellepop?

I have 2 birds - different species (African Grey and Conure) - and I house them in separate cages right next to each other. This is usually preferable unless they are introduced together as babies or are breeders/will breed.

Is your plan for them to breed?

I have a yellow sided green cheeked conure and a blue ring neck parakeet and one will kill the other if they contact each other. They just seem to hate each other. The ring neck has serious anger issues. I also long ago had a Patagonian conure in a large parrot cage. I told a housemate not to let his little half moon conure out unsupervised and he did. The small bird went into the big birds cage and the mean old guy ate the half moon up entirely. I am not joking, while we were at work it completely devoured the poor little thing. There was nothing but a couple of pieces of bone and feathers left and some blood.
