first of all DO NOT take one with you...have respect for your roommate...if you don't and your roommate becomes irritated with you and the bird guess what will happen...the bird will pay the consequences for your own selfishness...

do not keep the cages together just separating them doesn't mean only in different cages it means.."separate" them ...put them across the room from each other or in different rooms altogether...

when feeding a bird from your hand your NOT taming OR training...please read other threads in here regarding that issue...what it does encourage is biting and it wont be long before your getting bit...no matter what this does nothing to gain trust during training...

training should also always be done with both birds in different cages away from each other which also needs to be done on a regular schedule which you will now not be able to do because your going to college...

something you may have thought better of when you got these birds...

bottom line...leave the bird at home...do not feed from your hand...and by the time you get home the birds will be older making it truly difficult to train...like any training goes with animals ...like I said a schedule needs to be maintained...consistency matters a LOT.

good luck to you in college...but don't put a bird in jeopardy when your roommate has already told you she DOESNT WANT THE BIRD THERE. AND..the college does not want it either...
