I have been quarantining Milton since I got him on June 28th. I planned to quarantine him for 30 days, but I had to make a decision. Evie should be coming home very soon, which would mean four bird cages in my little house. I'm not worried about the cages, but I am worried about the amount of space between the cages. Here's the situation... I had Milton in my room, Danny in the living room, and Alex in the backroom/laundry room. The vet wants Alex and Danny to have a least a few rooms between them to discourage egg laying. My room is close to the living room so I worried it wasn't much of a quarantine. I KNOW Evie was exposed to a bacterial infection and even though she has been treated I want to keep her very far from Alex, Danny & Milton at the beginning.

Anyway long story short, I have begun to introduce Danny and Milton. I hope they will be living together by the time Evie comes home so I can properly quarantine her. Milton is eating normally, pooping normally, acting normally, and sleeping normally. I really didn't want to cut his quarantine short, but I thought it was best. No real point to this thread, just thought I'd see what anyone had to say about it. :)

I hope everyone gets along well, and that all your birds stay healthy! How is Evie? Is she still sick, or getting better?

Danny and Milton seem fine with each other. They aren't overly excited about each other, but they don't hate each other either. I think everything will be fine with them.

From what I know Evie is pretty much fine now. I was expecting a call this week to pick her up, but I think the longer they keep her the better. I'm already attached to her just from visits, but I don't want to see Alex, Danny, & Milton get sick from her.
