Hello little one
My thoughts when adding a new member? Make sure the existing family members dont feel threatened by the new guy, keep them apart but in sight of eachother first, in the same room, dont let hey joe and little wing feel threatened or if their territory is being over run. Love birds are notoriously aggressive and territorial little birds and love to engage in fights and are known to even nip the toes of perpitrators, even if they are their own kind! Get them to gradually know eachother and maybe then slowly introduce them to free flight together, of course under supervision and in a neutral zone that joe and wing dont percieve as being their existing territory. Hope all is well and VC has found a forever home. What a scary name! VC! maybe you should think of changing it if it is a name from a previous home, especially if it is an abusive home or a neglectful one or a lonely one, as VC will remember these times through association with his name. Best to let him have a completley fresh start with a new name if so, but if VC is his new name you have chosen then it is ok as he will not associate it with anything negative! love umberto
