    I would see what others say but here I would clip the wings
    if they are pets for a few reasons.
    1. I think it helps more when trying to handle/tame them
    2. Just in case they happen to get loose they cant go far
    (but you do have to watch them close around other animals
    because the birds can be caught and killed too quick)

    I dont think you have to seperate them if they are happy
    together just handle both a few times each day and see how
    it goes.
    If they get loose (without the wings clipped) they can stave
    to death because they are used to having food and water gave
    to them.
    And finally here I clip wings to keep my birds (parrots) off
    of other birds cages to start trouble like some might like
    to do.
