My precious Lola and baby Bella are fighting. Non. Stop. Especially at night when I am about to cover them up. It doesnt matter if one is on the opposite end if the cage. They fight, eventually. I have seen them fall to the bottom of the cage in a ball of keet feather fury. I have heard it happen when they are covered. Amber (Kariva) has suggested I separate them, but that makes Scott mad cuz he doesnt want another bird cage put up.... I dont know what to do. I love Lola so much... Shes my precious baby girl. And baby Bella just wants comfort. But it seems like they hate eachother, which leads to screaming while I am at work and Scott is at home trying to sleep. (Not a good situation) I dont know what to do, help!

hmm its probally growing pains.

lola has a newbie in her territory and she has to get used to it that can take time.

scott has to choose if he likes the noise of fighting more than having another cage haha .... if you did separate them id say make sure the cages are right next to each other so they can touch if they want but have there own space.

also make sure you have two of everything in the cage .... mine used to fight like crazy when i first got them even though they were bonded... cuz i had only one of stuff and once i got two flower cups two of the same perch, two platforms, two of each toy or something very similiar then they stopped fighting and now dont mind sharing. smile

establishing the pecking order can be hard specially with females smile

yea id say put them in separate cages but right next to each other and that way they can play with each other when they want to and go to their own space when they dont.

that way they learn to love each other instead of having to tolerate each other hee hee

tell scott ... noise or a cage ???? sleep or a cage ????


and ask him when he is dead tired LMAO he will say CAGE for the love of god CAGE ANDDREAAA

hahahaha

I'm not sure how old Bella and Lola are but...Could it be an age issue? I'm not sure if anyone else has experienced this but when I added Bit (my second older keet) to my 7 month keet she seemed to be completely annoyed by him. Of course, he wanted to be right next to her all the time, he would push her with his foot for attention then run off, he would sing to her at the top of his lungs... anything to get her attention but she just didn't care and would peck at him whenever he got to close.

All in all it took about 3 months for them to really accept each other and now they literraly flip out whenever they are seperated for training.

I don't know what kind of cage you have but I'll bet you could divide it in two. Buy a piece of plexiglas from the home depot. They will tell you how to cut it. Measure it so that you can take the bottom of your cage off and fit it up through the bottom. Position it so it splits the cage in half. You can hold it in place with clothes pins through the bars that grasp the plastic. They will see each other but you will be able to take the door down and get each out

My mom suggested that too. I have the green Vision cage. I wonder if I could make it work? Just for night time maybe, or when they really start squabbling...

I should prolly also say they arent violent with eachother. Its just that kicking and making those weird annoyed dolphin noises all the darn time! Then Bella acks and acks and acks and makes Scott go CRAZY!!! He said "Im getting rid of those darn keets!" He should think again!
