    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?
    Good luck.
