Dear Darryl,

I strongly recommend against you adding a new grey to your current companion's cage. The ONLY time two greys should be in the same cage is if it was THEIR idea. Your Grey may get very jealous of a newcomer, particularly if he has been an only bird in your home for 5 years. If he has been used to being around other greys or birds in the past, it would be easier. But no matter what, please do not ever put them in the same cage.

When they don't get along, there is nowhere for the weaker one to go. One gets more aggressive and the other gets more passive. Why do this to two beautiful birds? If you are determined to bring in another Grey, then place it in a separate cage and in a different part of the room (after quarantine, of course), so they have their own territories. Over time, if you find they really get along, they will show you they want to get in the same cage.

Here's an article about my experiences and learning:

Hoping this helps.
Blessings,
