Do I seperate?

Do I seperate? - 03/03/09 06:15 PM

I've got some questions for anyone who would like to help. First I have my two female keets together in a cage. They've been together since I've got them last June. Recently they have started to fight over food and sometimes just because. I've noticed that one of them has a small "bruise" like spot on her beak. I'm also trying to train one so is this the time to seperate them or will I just be making matters worst?

Do they have two of everything - or even three (especially food dishes). I doubt that it is a bruise on her beak. The beak is a lot like our nails and since there is not a blood supply to the beak it will not bruise. Can you post a picture. Also is the bruise on the beak or the cere. Sorry for all the questions, just trying to get a good mental picture of what you are saying.
