Hi Daniel,

I'm not very good on bird psychology, but in dogs sometimes the 'bad dog' isn't that bad.

My girlfriend has 2 dogs, male (setter cross, med-large) and female (shitzu, small), as the small dog is funny and small they have been allowing certain things that are not allowed in the big one.
I have noticed more often than not the small dog is the instigator, like for instance barking at people etc.. when you tell them to sit and be quiet (also before giving a piece of food like bread or meat as treat). Big dog follows the order but 'smart little fur ball' keeps on barking and moving around, and the large dog has a hard time to stay relaxed, sit and quiet. But due to human 'shortsightedness' they usually blame the large dog at my gf's home.

Pay attention to the body language and the vocalizations of the female, I have seen several males beat up their female and 5 minutes later they are mating. Also check up mirrors, etc...
Sometimes it's the other bird triggering certain behaviors.
For instance I rarely have had problems housing cockatiels where kakariki are breeding, I use it sometimes temporarily to let cockatiels bond, or to relief the main holding aviary and avoid overpopulation.
But this time a male cockatiel was disturbing the other cockatiels and this triggered aggression of the male kakariki towards this particular cockatiel. The kakariki didn't bother the other cockatiels but he was very focused on this one male that was trying to be dominant.

Then also as Steps said there are individuals that when they enter breeding mode they get a bit too aggressive, but otherwise fine birds.

These are ideas, maybe not related with your particular case, but maybe it helps other people understand situations they see in the aviaries, as they have been sometimes unexpected for me.

Cheers / Pablo

Yes moko, she is a female.. they were also coupled often...
I'm not sure it will be useful to know, but both are hand-reared but from different farms
Bye bye

hmmm

you said hand reared?
I think I didn't notice before.
If they are handreared there might be the problem with them.

About being male and female I think it doesn't matter too much, as I have had 4 males isolated in the same aviary and they formed 2 pairs, feeding each other and no fighting between them.

Cheers/ Pablo
