    Brenda,
    Mixing just two pairs of birds, especially when one is
    already nesting is a recipe for disaster. If your birds were
    in a large/aviary/flight with other birds already, it would
    be much easier to introduce the new Cordons.
    Personally, I wouldn't do it as it will create tension and
    completion between the pairs, and the Cordon pair is two
    males.

    And yes, male Cordons do get along together if there isn't a
    female to distract one of them or cause sexual tension.
