    Hello Dave,,
    Oh wow! I had only had cockateils and Lovebirds before a gal
    who said she was part of Bird rescue brought these Two to me
    caged together and she told me THEY CANNOT BE SEPARATED!! I
    could never understand that because she would just beat the
    crap out of him... Katie is MEAN and poor Kiwi.. Oh I feel so
    bad now and wish I would of known about this earlier , Now
    that Katie is out of the cage , Kiwi has turned into a huge
    love.. Katie on the other hand is still mean even though I let
    her out put her on the tree gym she still is so mean , I
    coddle her in a towl talk to her and pet her head... Oh thank
    your for that information,, I never knew... Question, do two
    of the same sex get along better?
    Thank you agian for all your help
