Can beardies play with birds?

Not open for further replies.


Me and my wife have 2 cockatiels, a beardy, a ton of fish, and 2 dogs (a boxer and a Chihuahua). The boxer wants to play with / eat (im not sure which) the beardy and the birds so the birds and lizard get their own room upstairs, now my question is whether it is wise to even see if they will tolerate each other if I let them out at the same time. I mean are there any diseases that they can catch from one another? Has anyone tried this?

birds are one of their natural predators in the wild. I personally wouldn't have them in the same room at all. It might cause a lot of stress.

still not a good idea, and size doesn't really matter that much. Smaller animals can dominate larger ones and large animals can be scared of things much smaller than them. Happens all the time. Fear is not always rational, even with animals.

huh, didnt really think it was a good idea, so have never tried it. But have never even though about him seeing them though. Right now they are in seperate rooms, but once we move we were planning on putting them in the same room. Might have to put a piece of cardboard on that side of the tank to keep them out of sight.

If you have, you will no how black a beardie will go when they see a bird...

So to any reading this, how on earth do I post a thread 😅 New here, possibly too old for this

Just Hazel in a filter I need so not posting on forums.

I have questions about bubbles on our bearded dragons eye.

So he’s gotten bubbles on his eye. We wiped them off and it’s only been twice in the last few weeks. Should we be concerned? No coughing or congestion. He’s very hungry and sleeps well. He’s 8-9 month range. His humidity is 30-40 day time and as high as 50-55 at night to early morning.
Should we be concerned?
