    Why is it that you insist they HAVE to get along? Isn't it
    enough that they are each good birds in their own right?
    I can't believe that I'm reading that one of them will have
    to go just because they don't like each other.
    Surprisingly, siblings that don't get along usually get to
    remain in the same home. Granted, not always by choice, but
    those pesky laws make it so difficult to get rid of one kid!
    How about you and your husband enjoy them for who they are
    and make provisions that they do not HAVE to have direct
    contact with each other. Is that too much to ask?
    How very sad that you would re home one of them because they
    don't fit into the "ideal mold" that you have envisioned in
    your mind.
    How about you try practicing a selfless act of love? So you
    didn't get Ozzie and Harriet of the bird world. So what?
    Deal with it and make it work.
