Heh...I told my mom that they both look like males, and now she wants to return Cabbie to get a female. Don't worry though, I won't let her return him. I know 18x30x30 is supposed to be a cage for 2 birds..but I'd rather get a third than return one just because she doesn't like its not a female. I think they've already bonded, they like to stand close to one another and one will often follow the other from perch to perch. And if they haven't bonded, I CERTAINLY have gotten to love them in the last few days!
Although..I don't think I'd get a third quite yet. Maybe in a few months, but not yet. We have some wood litter left over from Dad's last parakeet, and she wants to use that up before moving to newspaper. Its..really messy, heh. I'm worried that bacteria is gonna grow in it or something and get the birds sick..I'm concerned it has been kept in the garage for at least two years without being disturbed so it doesn't take much thought to consider there is likely something in it. I'd rather just switch to newspaper but technically they are her birds..despite the fact I'm the one taking care of them and training them and all.
