Stanley will be just fine without your getting him a friend.
YOU are his friend and flockmate. They do just fine being a single bird as long as they get attention from their humans.

Besides, like illusive pointed out...there is never a guarantee that Stanley would even LIKE a new one of you got one. Sometimes they just plain do not get along.
AND you would need another cage to quarantine the new one.

Just be patient. Stanley will come around and be just fine. Work with him slowly EVERY day, build up his trust in you. You'll see that if you take the time and be patient..working at HIS pace, never forcing yourself upon him, he will be a very happy and well adjusted little bird.

gain, sorry for your loss. I did see in your other thread what happened to Rhonda..so disregard what I said about the one you lost maybe having been contagious. frown

what you call itching maybe he is coming into a molt...and actually preening....and during this time as it gets worse they get grumpy a bit...and you will start to see a lot of little fluffy feathers all over ... laugh

well misting or baths will also help but if he is about 7-8 months old this could very well be it or older and going thru a new molt...

no if its molt its not the same as whats called feather plucking where they pick allll their feathers and do so in such a way you see bald areas and redness....

they generally have two types of molt a minor molt where its all the lil fluffies and a major molt where virtually they drop every feather on their body a bit at a time starting at the head and neck area then progressing all the way to the tail where they end up looking like they got a little stumpy butt as we call it in here ...where the tail feathers are there but just very short till they lengthen out. smile
