Yes, you can put normals and roseys together. If they breed, it is fine. I don't actually breed them, but the rosey is just a color mutation. I believe it is always safe to breed any natural colored bird with a color mutation. If I am incorrect, some of you breeders, please correct me.
My vet, however, has a rosey bourkes and a natural colored bourkes together, so that makes me certain that for this species, this is fine. I also know some other people with bourkes who have a bonded pair in which one is natural and the other is rosey.
I'm glad to hear that the bourkes is already friendly. They are such sweethearts. It is difficult for me to believe that only a few years ago, most people believed they did not make good pets.
Also, Bobby works as a girl's name, too.
