    We just adopted a Big B&G and he was a breeder, his mated died
    of egg binding. He now lives in a 40x40 macaw cage with toys,
    and best of diet along with a bird room of 11 large parrots. I
    wont risk any of their well being, they do not need to mate to
    have a happy and full life. Plus I could not part with babies
    and fear them being bounced like 75% of all birds are. I agree
    buy a cage and enjoy your pets, they enjoy having other flock
    members to have company. Just think arranged marriage- I wouldnt
    want my mate picked for me- and I kinda think birds feel same
    way?!
