We have 2 Green Cheek Conures and have done exactly what Connie
has suggested to you. The best advice ever to keep your buddy,
your buddy. We give ours playtime together, but then it's back
to their side by side cages. They enjoy each other and are both
as sweet as ever, and still show us the great affection just as
before. Just remember to give them both your equal time, so as
not to get jealous. Good Luck!
