    As Audrey wrote it really depends on the birds. My friends mom
    has 2 cockatiels with her sun but she did it nice and slow just
    to see how they would do.
    I would start out with their cages by each other first. Dont
    leave them alone at all when you are starting out putting them
    around each other because it just takes a split second to have
    one get hurt. Better safe than sorry just like kids.
    Good luck :0)
