you'll have to excuse the mess, im super sick right now and don't have the energy to clean their cages.. but I noticed minky and ellie were licking each other through the cage hehe (no ellie isnt biting his tongue i promise, she just doesn't usually stretch her tongue as far as minky does)

How do you tell them apart. Other than attitude and personal preference.

sorry for such a late reply! ellie has old lady smell and generally looks older. she also has a more yellow chest, longer tail feathers and darker nostrils + eye rings. minky is more red on his chest, longer sharper beak, lighter nostrils and the bit around his eyes is also lighter. I feel like ellie has a lighter eye colour too. minky looks more long while ellie is kinda round. plus minky talks a lot and ellie just makes little old lady noises hehe
