I dont know if I want to subject her to injections. Is that safe? And
is it healty so put her through that? I've heard of the injections,
but I dont know like how often she would have to go and get them and
such. I guess I just dont like the idea of having to subject her to
something like that if I can find an alternative. I have a realy good
vet and so I'm not worried that way. It just seems kind of harsh when
shes not laying eggs, she just wants to mate. My husband and I had
talked about getting her a playmate but shes (not to my knowledge
anyway) ever liked other birds. From what I was told she goes after
them. We have to keep our teil away from her as well or she tries to
bite. So we figured a playmat was out of the question. I'm just not
sure what to do anymore.
