my 9yr old jardine parrot has started to get very amourous, shall we say with his perch. He only seems to have started this within the last 12months but is getting more frequent. I obviously know why hes doing this, but am I being cruel keeping him on his own?
The trouble as I see it, with buying another bird for his is how to gaurantee I am buying a hen bird and also what if they didnt get on then I would be left with the two of them and I dont really have room for another cage in the house. Would it be kinder to let him go to a breeding programme. Although all the family are fond of him it does seem cruel going against his natural instinct.
