    You should not have a problem. I personally kept a flock of
    male Gouldians with no problems at all. They would often do
    their little dance for each other and sang beautifully.

    I know many people keeping just males (or, to a lesser
    extent, just females. *females do fine together too, just I
    guess they are not as pretty so most that I know chose
    males) Their colors are stunning and their songs are
    beautiful. Their courtship could be described as comical.
    Gould's are gentle and peaceful birds. (Though, I have been
    told that they will occasionally pick on other's to defend
    their nest if bred in a community setting.)

    So, assuming that your cage is large enough to comfortably
    house two Gould's, I'd say go for it. They are much better
    off with each other then alone.

    I personally never kept females with my boys cause I did not
    want the hassle of breeding (with their tendancy to not
    incubate the eggs or not rear the young if they hatch).
    They are great birds. I find my boys where quite curious
    once they settled in. They always be excited when food was
    comming and if I talked to them my favorite little orange
    head would fluff and ruffle his feathers.
