My cockatiel used to have a companion before, but the poor thing died. :[
She died about a week ago because she got sick(to be honest, it was a parakeet, but they got along pretty well). Now, my single cockatiel seems to be a bit lonely. I'm not sure if he really is or not. He doesn't seem to sing as much, but he still does. He kind of just sits still. Whenever I sat next to the cage before and whistled to him, he'd pace back and forth to come out. Now he doesn't do it anymore. Now he just kind of looks at me. He also gives me a harder time about coming out of his cage. I'll do the "up" command and instead of stepping up he does what some call "rapid-fire" biting. I eventually get him to step up but he always wants to go back to his cage. What's up with him?
If there is something wrong with him, what can I do about it? Besides, of course, taking him the vet. If it comes to that, I will though.
