Post: What to do for a king who has lost his queen...

    In one of the blackest weeks of our entire lives, my wife
    and I just lost both of our beautiful female cockatiels,
    Sammi and Lucy, to egg-binding/reproductive system
    disorders on successive weekends. Two totally separate
    occurrences. Our grief cannot be described.

    Now, I am worried about the one remaining male 'tiel that
    we have. He was HEAVILY bonded to Lucy. For the past three,
    he has been calling and looking for her relentlessly. He
    has been eating some, but not as much as I'd like to see as
    he usually would only eat once he saw Lucy begin eating. We
    are spending as much time with him as possible trying to
    comfort him, but I'm not sure what else I can do. We bought
    a new mirror and hung it in his cage. He seems to be very
    interested in the birdie in the mirror, but he still
    continues to call out to Lucy constantly. I really don't
    think that running out and getting him another cage mate
    would be the thing to do at this point. Besides, we also
    have a Dusky Headed Conure who absolutely ADORES him and
    would love to be his buddy, even though I know that's a
    long shot.

    Any suggestions on how I can help my grief stricken little
    guy get through this? I posted this same message on
    parrotchronicles.com yesterday, but I've received no reply.

    Thanks in advance.

    Ron
