TLDR: Male kak's girlfriend died. He cries for a mate. I can't bring one because history'd repeat, but his heart is breaking,and so is mine. What should I do?
This will be a strong rant. First of all someone up there decided to take my pretty girl away,who loved the boy more than I could ever describe it in words.
Today,I have a male parrot. I love him but he can't stop crying,he keeps flying around the room as if he wants to find a mate (not the same mate). He's crying and my heart can't help but break. I know this is supposed to be a grieving process, but please UNDERSTAND this next sentence: I had one male parrot in the past, and he couldn't stand me. All he did was scream,be scared of me,even when I had the best intentions and actions. He was wild but he was also looking for a mate. I seriously considered suicide because of the high pitch of his voice and the fact that I had to live many years in company of someone who was disturbing me so much.
Now tell me, should I just kill myself and be done with it? Of course I wouldn't like it but I am constantly breaking my heart listening to the parrot that I currently have,whose girlfriend is gone somewhere nice in the sky.
What I need is a solution. I tried to put up mirrors in his cage,but they don't always help. I tried to imagine bringing a new girlfriend to him but there's one problem: my parrot will die one day and she'll be lonely too. I hate going through all this grief, because I'm heartbroken too,all the time. I see nothing that can help me now,what should I do? My boy eats,drinks,flies,but all he does is scream for a mate and I don't want him to become as annoying as my previous male parrot was. I really don't know what to do. My heart breaks each time I hear him cry for a mate, fly in a circle as if to look down for a mate..
What should we do now?
ps: focus more on the problem my boy's facing because I got rid of being heartbroken by honoring her presence, living my life as I should, knowing that one day I'll meet her again, like the "rainbow bridge" poem says.
I live in europe,there aren't many kakarikis here I could send my boy to,however I might find one from a store,but seriously I don't want to,history would repeat over and over and I got no heart for that,nor will to live my life on repeat.

maybe consider another passive bird like a burke or Turq for company in a couple weeks time if cant source another female.
If sourcing a kakariki female, one that is being weaned... just before or after the iris has formed.
When your male settles down, chances are u will find you will be of more attention to him. _________________ My Spelling is Not Incorrect...It's 'Creative'
Alright,things have improved,and I'm thinking of moving his cage on the balcony (it has windows,is real close to a heater). I was wondering if it's a good idea to keep him there,surrounded by birds. Would it make him agitated,even more sad? Well I'll try to see how he reacts,but others' take on this idea would be really .
