It all depends. Are they two baby Greys? Are they close to one another? Do they appear to WANT to be together in the same cage? It should be their idea.

You may want to start out by giving them two separate cages side by side. If you find that they start climbing in together into ONE, you will know the answer. Otherwise, two cages are better.

Please keep us posted,

Dear Maggie,
Thank you for replying. I love your book "African Grey Parrots." Our 2 new parrots are about 9 weeks old and still at the breeders. They are both male (we think) and clutch mates. We should get them sometime in June, so I am getting prepared. We are not new to companion parrots - our beloved "Seymour" died in March at 35 years old.
Thanks again, Penny

I forgot to mention that the parrots are African Greys. The other thing I was worried about was them rejecting us and acting like mates, but from all I have read, that should not be a real problem. Thanks for the advice - I will provide 2 cages and see how it goes. We're excited!
