i know breeders that switch them out with other mates when
they want certain traits or whatever...doesn't mean i think
it's smart. i do feel they bond for life. it is stressful on
them to be separtated. just pull them away from each other
and see what happens....they will squawk and flutter and be
very upset right away. might even go in to endless
screeching....never left mine apart for that long, just
thought it was cruel.
