Quaker Parrot and new adoptee
Hi I have a quaker who is about one. I found him when he was maybe 6 months old he had not gone through his forst molt yet. We (boyfriend and myself) have since fallen in love with him and he has grown attached to us as his small flock of 3 with a preference for me :)
I have been considering adopting a parrotlet or a senegal or another smallish bird as a companion for Uptown (our quaker). I often feel sad when we have to leave him for any length of time during the day and was thinking it might be nice for him to have a friend who is a bird so they can do "bird things" together. I understand a second bird would be more work for me but I honestly would not mind the work especially if Uptown would be happier with a companion more like him in his life. You know people often have more than one dog, cat, or lets face it, human child, for this reason and I was wondering if it was the same with birds, do they like being with other birds and not an 'Only Child'?
Any advice would be soooo appreciated.
