4 months ago we rescued a keet from outside. Mac is pretty tame now, so we decided to get him a buddy. today we brought home Kiwi! Mac has never been so excited about anything! the birds get along very well - especially since it's their first day. they talk to each other, cuddle, and follow each other around. SO CUTE!!

the question is: do you think it's okay if i let them share a cage tonight? i have been told that parakeets need to be in seperate cages, at least until they become acquainted with each other. i beleive that the keets get along well enough to share the cage. what do you think?

First of all, it's too late now but they should have been in separate rooms for about a month. Hopefully your new keet is 100% healthy and all will be well there.

Secondly, many fights start after the lights go out which is why it is generally recomended to keep them apart at night until they have had several outings together.

That being said, you are with the birds and can see how they are. If you do decide to cage them together over night, I would be sure to be close by so you can hear if there is trouble.
