Since I last posted here things between relationships are starting to turn
around. Without even separating them he has slowly become more happier with me. Though it's about to turn around since they are both starting their molt. Especially JD since he is still a baby. He is just now losing his bars and his pin feathers are bigger than Mercedes when he lost his. He has been rubbing his head everywhere. He even rubs his head on Mercedes to get him to preen him. Plus when we were out today he was biting Mercedes's feet. I didn't take it as a dominance thing since he never shows behavior like that. I just took it as its so itchy or it hurts so he is biting on something.
Today I went out and got stuff for their molting and treats. The crunch sticks since they chew on things a lot so they would have something to do. Plus some molting stuff since they don't eat fruit or veggies yet and I don't feel like shoving eggs in their face. I know JD is a little underweight and with the big pin feathers he is having I'm sure he needs something. I took them in PetSmart with me and everyone was surprised at how calm they were. Normally when I see someone with birds they are flying around the cage everywhere. They just sit there and watch and be quiet. Of course until we walked by a cockatiel and Mercedes got scared since that was the first time he actually saw a bird bigger than him.
Here is the two things I got, (Also tell me if this stuff isn't suitable)

Here are also some pictures of them after a bath,
They used to bathe in like a square shallow candle dish that I cleaned but I got them a dog water bowl since a small cage clip on bath one wouldn't work. They both shove each other in the water or push each other off haha. I got a blue one (https://bit.ly/2NtadFK
) and put a little water in it. It's big enough for them to bathe in and it also has walls to prevent a spill since they like throwing water everywhere.
