Hello Courtney,

Thomas is my son, so I can freely disagree with him here! I would suggest one male and one female. Unless you have a large aviary, you cannot keep 4-6 buttons together is a small space. There is a pecking order, and believe me, there will be at least one in the group that will attack the others. A trio can successfully habitat together, but it works better if they have been raised together as chicks. We currently have three females together in a large tank who are happy as can be. We've also had one male and two females who resided peacefully, but again, both these trios were raised together. Even having a couple does not mean that you will not have pecking. Certain birds just seem to have that predisposition. Giving them enough room and hiding places in their cage can most likely help. I don't mean to rain on your parade, but I do want to be truthful about the possibilities.
