Hello all. I haven't been on this forum in ages smile
But my parakeet Nacho is doing well. She's been a single bird now for a while. But we're thinking about geting her a friend. I'm in college now and I'm at my boyfriends house so there are times where shes alone during the day. I was thinking of just going and getting a baby bird, training it, then try introducing them. I don't think I could have them live together because Nacho is very territorail but maybe have the cages in the same room and when they're out of the cage they can play together? Would this be a good idea?

Also I was wondering if geting a male parakeet would be a bad idea? I've heard they're nicer as pets and don't bite as much. If they don't live together then is it possible they won't mate?

Do you really have time, and money. to devote to training and cleaning, besides the time you already spend with Nacho? If Nacho is doing well and you spend time with her when you're home she is probably ok as is. Leave the radio on for her, or t.v. when you're gone.
On the other hand... I have 15 so who am I to talk! If you have the time, money, patience... go for it!
