George is a quaker that has been with me for 10+years. My x wife was better at remembering how long. Before us he was with a friend that passed away. I am guessing he is about 15 to 20 years old. I don't think he has ever seen another Quaker. This has always bothered me. I think it is cruel to grow up never having known another of the same species. Never even a chance at love the way one should. It weighs on me more the older he gets. I love george like my own kid. Yet I want him to be with another like him. The places I've looked only have young birds wich would be cruel to them if he passes on a few years after they meet. Can any one help? If I found a girl proximity his age with good care takers I would be willing to let him go for free or buy the girl.
Does George show any signs of being unhappy being an only parrot? Many parrots are perfectly content without any other birds sharing their home. If you truly believe that George would be happier with another QP around, and are ready to take on the resposibility of a second parrot, your best course is probably to look for a more mature QP available for adoption. Good luck to you and George.
No he doesn't seem unhappy. I saposse it's me thinking that I would be if I was him. We lived in a place in the country with my wife and lots of critters. There was almost always someone home. George, Sally (our grey), Norton and Isaac (our blue crowned conures), and our dog had free run of the place. After years of learning to keep the place clean and not chewed to bits. Minus a couch, a love seat, several chairs, and new flooring. We, George, Sally, and the dog find ourselves in an apartment 10' from a busy rd. With carpet and my mother. Moms got all antique furniture. Now every one stays locked up except the dog and humans. I'm gone most of every day. Feeling bad for them.
It helps to hear it might just be me. Thank you for that thought.
