Agree, 18 is considered geriatric. If she likes the other bird that is okay. But I would not encourage breeding at this stage in their life. Just because they lay eggs, doesn't mean they need to have babies. I just paid $228 to have an egg passed-second visit. Plus the next follow-up visits. I'd imagine it may be close to $500 before we are over the hurdle. Are you prepared for that type of situation?There's nothing wrong with having a friend. But for an 18 year old bird this is also a complicated thing.
How long have you had this bird?
