When do they begin to get the red around their eyes?

I believe around 6 months? I can,t find very much about them online that doesn't contradict something else. I have read that the only live 5 years while somewhere else said 12. I will post updates and let you know when I have an answer though!

Will you have to separate them or will they colonize or live in harmony???
From what I have been told by other breeders they live together and protect the baby until they get big enough. Some people have even said that they have observed the parents bringing the baby small insects. It is my first time, but I hardly ever see the parents out and now one at a time they are only doing what I could describe as guarding the nest. They only behaved this way before when they first laid the egg. I will keep tabs on their behavior since there is so little information.
