Thats odd, i have a boy and a girl, and the girl is much harder to deal with than my little boy, Pom Pom. I wonder if you got a boy to even things out? Not sure

female keets do tend to be much more aggresive then male keets smile
However getting another boy isnt typically considered a good answer because then they might mate, another girl would be ok though smile

How do you promote mating, anyways? I'd love some babies...

erh, pm llpb
but before you do give it serious though, a lot of us are very... erh.. adamant about certain points of breeding (knowing how much its going to cost you, and the hen, it will shorten her life span and there is a very good possability of medical emergencies as well as what are you going to do with the babies? there will be more then 1 or 2...)
but she's the most knowledgable of any of us about breeding smile

Take a look at Steph's Egg binding pics and decide if you can deal with whatever may happen she is proof anything can happen.

Don't click the link WARNING!!! If you can't handle anything medical and scary and kinda gross. I can't get a better word now it's still heart wrenching.

If you feel you can there are graphic pics of egg binding when it happened to one of our beloved forum members keets. And it is informative.

and we should mention the keet in that post died because of the medical emergency even though steph took her to the vet. The bird had surgery, maybe more then one and was recouperating on meds for a few days before she died.
In other words, even if you do everything right its still a severe health risk to your bird.

Oh indeed my bad, thank Heathersorralegs!

Stephanie was a super mom but you can only do so much. If you read it you can see how much she went through for her keet.

It won't necessarily happen, but I just thought it was a powerful example of what MIGHT happen cos' babies don't always happen smoothly, just like with people.

Except budgies are alot smaller.

I just want to clear in no way is that a refection on Steph. She is super sweet!

its ok, Kila bites me all the time, sometimes I wonder if she does it for fun, the worst is when I get on the phone of the computer, she likew attacks my hands. But recently I tried doing an earthquake on her, and if I do a particularly semi strong earthquake just strong enough that she flaps her wings a little she stops. I've also been told blowing lightly in their face works, but hen I tried that she was unphased by it.

I tryied the same thing Kila with the moving my hand to throw her off balance , she got mad and just bit me more and the face blowing got no reaction.
*Throws hands up in defeat*
I figure eventually I will be eaten by Coco.
