I had a male chin and felt he should have some company. He was about 3 years old when I found him a girl =) He is neutered though which is different in your case. But the introduction process wasnt that bad. Males and females get along great.
I just had them in seperate cages in the same room for about a week. Then put the cages next to eachother for a few days. No agression so I let them out around the room together, they had their little fights, but nothing serious. The first night I had them together Kassy, the female layed on her side and Marlo, the male layed right on top of her. Totally comfy! =)
I REALLY wish I could have bred them, but I got them from pet stores when they were older (one was abandoned, the other abused - she is half blind due to eye trauma, and I have had her for 2 years and she is just now WANTING/letting me pet her, but is very skittish of new people) anyways, I didnt know their backround and couldnt breed them. =(
So, I would say get whatever you want! haha. They should get along great as long as you introduce them right. I did a lot of research =)
Lucky you! Hope all goes well!
