"We have 3 Alexandrines at the moment, 2 females and a male in the same 3 metre by 3 metre aviary. We also had 2 young, about 6 months in another cage, but they both died very suddenly within a week of each other. We keep the aviary very clean by brushing and hosing the concrete floor every other day to minimize any problems. One of the females is rather aggressive towards the male so we may put her in another cage and see if the male and remaining female will mate. The male is named Poh Jah which means Father in Thai. He is very tame and loves to kiss and be stroked. They love to eat the very hot Thai chillies and leaves of certain trees in our garden. They have 2 large nest boxes mounted high in the aviary and they have been using them now for about 6 months. We have a fishpond and waterfall in the aviary to give our birds some extra water supply if needed. As soon as I go into the aviary, at least 1 bird will fly to my head or shoulder and proceed to nibble at my ear or neck chain. 1 bird has flown away twice but has come back both times."
