well i have a wf amazon and i have just learned that the sound i always associated with a toucan in jungle movies comes from parrots.
i am partially deaf and have had fred my wfa for 8 months now and yesterday was the first time i have ever put my hearing aides in while i have had fred.
not only was i amazed at the sounds i have missed hearing but i was amazed with the fact that he is a whole whole WHOLE lot louder than i realized.
my house may well sound like a johnny wiesmiller tarzan movie when i have the windows opened hehehe. i just love it.

If the birds begin to fight, the fight may not last more than a few minutes. However, if they persist, the birds must be separated to avoid serious injury. In that event, they may be introduced to each other at a later date, and if unsuccessful, different mates should be selected for the aggressor and aggressee. If the birds do not fight, but avoid each other after many weeks, it is also desirable to select different mates for them

I was told the opposite. I was told that they crap all the time, but it is like a dogs and willl really stink up you area. Starting to look like the only thing we know for sure is the is allot of misinformation about these birds.

This applies to any pair of birds you intend to pair up, be it zebra finches, diamond doves, hyacinth macaws or in this case toucans!
Unfortunately you can't just buy two of something and expect them to fall in love and breed, though some people get lucky. Sometimes they will tolerate each other but show no interest in breeding.
It also depends on how you introduce them, whether they are hormonal, whether they are both on neutral ground, etc.
But yes, if you were trying to breed say hyacinth macaws or some really expensive bird, you'd hope the pair you purchase would get along!
