Getting My African Grey A New Companion

Post by Iriska » Fri Feb 26, 2016 6:46 pm

Sadly, we recently lost our African Grey to aspergillus, she was only 11 years old. I bought her and her companion (another female) from a reputable breeder at 3 months old and they were kept in the same cage since. The second girl seems to be doing all right at the moment and I am trying to give her more attention and company but I am wondering whether in the long term she would be better off with another companion bird.



Have any of the readers been in a similar situation and what are the pros and cons of getting a new bird? Should I wait for sometime before making a decision? If I get a new parrot, should it be a baby or am I better off with an older bird, perhaps a rehomed or rescued?
