Heh-----smile a little. Joke, just a joke.
On the serious side, what they're doing is quite normal for them
( parrots). At times they'll preen each other, try to overtake a
cage etc etc. There's nothing you should worry about. Don't be
surprised if it stops though. That'll have nothing to do with
them disliking each other. Most parrots go through all types of
phases even into their adulthood
PS---make sure there's no see through pink undies around---Hmmm,
never can tell what'll happen. After all they do get into
phases. Boys will be boys
