    Keeping 2 quakers together, especially a male and a female is
    a very bad idea. Your female that's generally nasty will only
    get nastier. The question about her ever coming around can't
    be answered. All birds have different personalities, even in
    the same species but if there IS any chance of her becoming
    friendlier she will have to be worked with in her own cage.
    If you intend to try that don't put time limits on how long
    it'll take to make her friendlier------Dave
