2 male cockatiels and 1 female?
I currently have one male cockatiel, and I have had him for a good 6 years now, and unfortunately, he lost his mate back in December (we miss her dearly.) and he has become rather lonely. He has gotten very attached to me, the problem is I am not home very often, so its not fair to him.
I was recently at the pet store and found two 7 year old mated cockatiels which were left there by someone who didn't want them. The pet store has them for sale and I was thinking of purchasing them beings how the employees at the store highly doubt the birds will go to a good home, especially since they don't seem to be friendly towards people. Both are in great condition, they just lack human attention.
My question is, would the two males get along with each other? I know there would be some squawking and bickering, but considering there would only be one female I don't want them to attack each other and fight over her. Obviously the two males would be in separate cages, and the mated pair would stay together.
Is it possible for two males to get along with only one female?
