    Its a good question one should always ask before to see what
    other bird people have maybe done with their birds.
    When I got my 2nd TAG he came with an amazon and a big cage
    they were both in. They had been together since the were
    both babies and were 5 when I got them. I ended up
    seperating them because they were starting to have male
    HORMONES kick in and getting fisty with each other and I
    didnt want either to get hurt. I have many types of pet
    birds here CAGs and TAGs as well. What I do here in the
    birdroom is have one huge perch with many branches they can
    be out on where they cant get to each other...well they can
    but you learn who to put out with whom at the same time
    other wise they are free to go in and out of their own cages
    and hang out on cage tops unless I leave the house.
    Wings are clipped to keep some off of cages where they dont
    belong as well.
    All birds personalities arent the same just like people, you
    just have to get a feel of how they are and watch them close.
    In my bird room I have 2 green cheeks (one is a baby female
    for my male), a senegal,a max pionus, a DYH amazon, a pair
    of canaries and my baby cockatiels I am feeding plus my CAGs
    and TAG and a YN amazon in other rooms but most get to come
    play in here during the day.
    Good luck in whatever you decide to do :0)
    Birds are really lots of fun and remember you are "the
    master of the house" that can make things work one way or
