I've had two cockatiel hens past 10 years, very closely bonded. One has died and was wondering if I should get another , as I guess the one left is missing her mate and feels lonely. The problem is it is difficult to find an old bird and I would be getting a younger one, also not sure if male or female be better, or should I just leave her on her own, as I'd hate if she didn't get on with a new one and don't want to annoy her, if anyone has any advice, I'm not sure about getting maybe a hand reared budgie, or stick with cockatiel, as hand reared might be more calm, she would need something calm and non aggressive as she's an old lady now. , any advice appreciated.
