I'm sorry about you loss Angela. I lost one of my little
lovebirds a few months ago and I'm still grieving for her.
Have you thought about a quaker as a companion for your
little one. I have two cockatiels and my 4 year old one has
bonded with my quaker. They love to play together and follow
each other everytime I put them in the playground.
At what age did your cockatiel started laying eggs?
