    I didn't know that so I went to my vet this am and asked . She
    said as long as they are not in the same cage (which I wouldn't
    do anyway) that it was ok just keep them far away enough away
    from each other so they can't touch which I think is a good idea
    anyway. I have a very large home and it is open so I can have
    them in seperate rooms but they can see each other and talk.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to tell me that.
