That is just "nature". No male needed, it just happens with mature
females. Now you know for sure you have a female! Just make sure
your bird has a balanced diet. Not just seed but I recommend
Nutriberries from Lafeber, and the Zupreme pellets as total
nutritional alternatives to feed along with your seed, but put your
pellets in a different bowl so you have less waste. As a rule of
thumb, anything orange colored is great for your bird. Carrots,
Sweet potato, yams, cooked squash. I ordered a "skewer" that I can
load fruit on like a kabob from Fosters&Smith. My cockatoo LOVES
it. I string chunks of melon & cantalope and pinapple on it, or
cut and orange in half or a watermelon chunk, or apple or pears on
it. It has a locking bottom so fruit does not fall off. The bird
does not drop the food on the the cage bottom like when you put it
in their bowl. The birds just munch the fruit until it is gone.
It is stainless steel and easy to clean. My bird just bounces up
and down when she see me coming to her cage with that "kabob"
