Sorry, I thought that I had.you would have to provide pictures and staff would help you out.
I was thinking that her beak looked a bit wrong. Thank you. I will look into that. I've just tried to get pictures but she won't stay still. She is a girl though?She looks like she may have a case of scaly face mites, her cere and beak area do not look normal, if so she needs treatment or it will get worse and can cause disfigurement. Please locate an avian vet and have her treated
Once a bird is mature it is not possible to determine their age, I cannot tell from the pictures if an iris is visible in the eyes, can you tell in person? An iris will develop around 9-10 months of age in most mutations so they can be an indication of whether or not the bird is young once they have lost the baby bars on the head.

😍😍 Thank you. So glad I don't have to change her name. She's called Betty! What would be your recommendations regarding getting her a friend? Is it a good idea? (Obviously ill get her to a vet first) And would a male be better if so? I believe two females may fight, is this correct?Yes, she is a she.
The only thing that I know prior to me adopting her is that she had a mate who died and she became very depressed. I adopted her from a younger family member who I don't believe was taking the best care of her. I believe she was grieving for her mate. Although she does get a lot of attention from myself and my partner, and she is free to fly around our house throughout the day, we feel she is lonely since the death of her mate.Some birds are quite content as the only bird and others do better when they have another bird friend, it depends on the individual bird. You have to be the judge as to whether or not you feel she would be happier with another bird, what is her personality like and how is she with you in these first few months? Do you know anything about her life before you got her? It would be best to get another female as you would not need to be concerned about unwanted breeding. Two females will not necessarily fight, it depends on the personalities of the individual birds.
