Re: Parrot Partner Grieving

As stated above extra attention is the best thing you can do.
When Plumas died and left his mate Pacho alone I gave her as much one on one time as I could.
Pacho went through a period of depression that lasted about 4 months. She seemed to come out of it after that but then she started eating her rope perch.
She followed him in death about 10 months after Plumas's passing.
I can't say for sure that she did not do that deliberately. I may never have certainty on that but Pacho had never ate her rope perch before.

Keep a close eye on your other birds.
