Hi there, this is Dr. Elaine
I'd like to ask you a few questions first, as this better helps me to advise you.
How old is your parakeet?
How long have the two birds been together? Male and female?
Any mating activity now or in the past?
What do you feed them?
How is her appetite?
Are they near the kitchen?
