Bruce, good info! I've always read they are flock species. I think the two would eventually get along. I haven't gotten the new baby yet, and I have no idea what gender either Reagan, or the new baby are. That would help. I think Margaret is right, and they'd get along if they were either two females, or two males. Reagan is starting to really get active.
