I recently adopted a male vosmaeri eclectus and now he will be moving into my new home with my other parrot a sun conure that is 7 years old... Is there a technique or a way to introduce them... They have met and have not shown signs of aggression or jealousy... What steps should I take? Thank you in advance!!
It's recommended to quarantine for a minimum of 30 days. Bare in mind that this does not guarentee the bird is free of all diseases though, some have longer incubation periods but it definitely decreases the risk of most things being passed on.
I don't think many pet owners bother doing it sadly. Theres always going to be a risk but I would hate to wipe out family members due to introducing a newcomer too early when the sake of a few weeks may have prevented it happening.
Thank you for all the advice, I have them in different rooms and they each have their own play stand. I have washed my hands before switching between handling. I love all of the helpful people on this site! Thank you again and again!
