    Eww. Im not sure if seperating them is a good idea. Parrots
    pair up for life and seperating them could cause seperation
    anxiety. It would be life splitting you and your significant
    other up. If you aquire a bonded pair i would think that
    atleast ethically you sould keep them together. You can still
    reach a certain level of tameness even with paired birds. They
    may not be the cuddle bug we all want as a pet but you could
    possibly get them to step up and maybe even talk. You may want
    to be a little more carfull with them around breeding season
    thou. Anyway ofcourse i dont wanna tell anyone what to do with
    thier pets. I would like to emplor you to ask around do a little
    research and make the most compasionate decision for you and you
    pet.
    (just an idea. you could breed them and sell all but one of the
    offspring which you could tame from infancy. This would make
    for an optimal pet. and the breeding pair could remain a happy
    couple) Again i dont wanna tell anyone what to do with thier
    pet i am only making a suggestion.
