Howard, I don't have the experience to offer really sound advice, but I think it's wonderful you've given a great home to this second bird.

We also live in a one-bedroom apartment, and introduced a male to our female quite quickly (even though at the time we thought both were males). We had them in the same room in separate, big cages. The new pigeon had already been quarantined elsewhere so we didn't have to worry about that.

We let our pij out while keeping the new pij in his cage for a few days. Someone suggested this, to let our pigeon know it was still their place and on their timetable to choose how to react to the new "person."

Our pigeon flew right over to the new pigeon's cage and struck up a communication and friendship. We waited just another day to let them interact together, supervised. They bonded right away and now they are a mated pair. That's obviously how we learned our boy was a girl.
