The new bird--Put Liquid soap on its wings so it can't get off the floor.
Then older bird can get on a perch????--away from the younger bird?
Let the new bird KNOW he does not "own" the loft.

Mr. Spooky---You tell us how to do it. ---PLEASE
Try it then you will KNOW.
I'm Sure you know the answer--BUT will not share it with the forum.
Sorry I don't have a Source--I only kept pigeons 40 or so years.

Listen, i want to know why "soaping" my bird is going to help me. You just tell me to soap him and you expect me to do it without knowing the consequences???? Ill just wait for a more serious answer, sir.

YEP--you can tell a 20 year---just can't tell them anything.
Let them learn like I did.
The "consequences"--it will work.
MORE detail???Soap it REAL GOOD

SO--someone --give him a SERIOUS answer--and me also.

I came here for an answer and all i got was "soap his wings". I asked why and you wont explain. Why do you act like this? Why do you have to make yourself look bad and act like a jerk, when all i was doing was asking why that would help? Why couldn't you just elaborate more to what you said? I'm sorry but for a man of your age i would of expect you to be more patient/willing to help.

Mr.Spooky--you asked--I told you how.
I hope someone else can give you a better ansewer and explain why they do it their way.
Maybe after you "TRY" it--you can post on this site your results.
THAT that old 75 y/o was WRONG AGAIN.

He asked you to soap the new bird,bcoz,once you soap the new bird,its wings will become really wet and so it wont be able to fly up-to the perch,where the old bird is sitting.......and the new bird will be forced to stay at the bottom of cage,as it cannot fly for a while due to the soaping !!! I hope,you are clear now.......:)

It makes sense but the once the soap is gone will the problem same problem persist? Will the bird still attack him when he comes down from he perch? I just don't get how soapy wings will make the bird not attack. He doesn't fly up to the perch to attack him, he only attacks when he is walking on the floor.

MR. Spooky--Just forget my post--DELETE IT.
FOR DETAILS-get a bottle of Liquid soap--you try it--makes lots of notes--how much you used on how many flights--had to soap more flights?--Keep good records and post them with your results.
Its several 100 members on this site needs a true and correct answer--as no other member has given you an answer.
O K FOLKs--Help him ---post an answer along with your Source and Details.
I did not do very GOOD with my answer--Because my AGE & I Q are the same number.

Usually the birds decide,who is the alpha bird(dominant bird) ........by doing the wing slap against each other.so during the fight,the new one with soapy wings will have a disadvantage over the old dry bird,ultimately when the fight happens during this period........the old bird will win the fight due to advantage of dry strong wings :)

Listen old man, no one is amused by you and your half ass reply's, sorry.

But the thing is that the younger bird doesnt attack with its wings. He pokes him with his beak. How can i stop this?

Help me Folks
Mr Spooky has not been on this site but 2-3 months.
AND does not know how to take sky-tx answers.
Someone explain to him I am a "PAIN" in the butt and has been for the Last 7-8 years.
Even banned from this site 2-3-4-times for giving true and correct answers--Just not like the Monitors "demand" they be typed.
