Does my cockatiel need a friend/mate?
I’ve had my female cockatiel for 3 or 4 years now. I used to give her lots and lots of attention. We just recently had a baby and she hasn’t gotten as much attention as she once did. She will get the attention once again when the baby grows and eventually he will be the one giving her attention. Until then should I think about getting her a mate. She’s been alone all these years already my concern is she won’t welcome another bird. Is a male vs female better or does it not matter. Or should we wait it out since she will get the attention as the baby gets older and I have more time. She has a very large cage and I make sure she always has plenty of things to keep her busy. I know she is happy, but I still feel bad that I can’t give her the all the attention like I used to.
