Hmmm, in my personal experience, females are more likely to mate-bond with another female than males. I have had 2 female pairs and they did the same thing, they would take turns getting 'on top'. Why don't you just DNA them? Not that it makes any difference because the important thing is that they love one another and are happy. Just be careful what you feed them because caiques cannot stand a diet high in protein and cannot be fed 'parrot mixes' or pellets. I have a blackcap that I took in at 10 years of age and he already came with chronic liver damage because of the 'parrot diet' he was fed and, even though I've had him for years now and has been under a special diet with supplements, he still has issues... People see them looking like parrots and think that a parrot diet is OK for them but, in reality, they eat more like conures than parrots.

You can have it done in USA because all it takes is a feather from the chest sent to an avian lab.
