I forgot to mention they are in separate cages so they do have their own spaces. But yeah I will give that a try. I think I'll place something at the bottom of the bowl to keep it level with the top since it is pretty deep. The cages I have, have a food and water bowl, but until I can afford a big cage I'll look for some water dispensers and fill the other bowl with veggies so they can still have their water and it won't take up so much space.
As for bonding and taming, most of my experience is with dogs and bunnies so I'm used to letting them run around and I felt bad that until Kiwi and Skittles are tamed enough they'll be stuck in a cage. I feel like I might have been moving too fast with them
Since one of them is scared and hides do you think it would be a good idea to start over with the process, or would that cause problems with continuing in the future because of inconsistency?
Also, thank you every one for the advice, I really appreciate it!
