Question by Holey: MY Male Bourke’s parrot passed away this morning i have just 1 girl she looks lonely will she be ok by herself?
shes in with 3 cocktail’s though
Answer by babygirl_23_ok
to be honest it all depends on how long the birds were together honestly it sounds like he was her soul mate and many times when mates die so do the others they just dont like to live without their soul mate just like many humans that lose their mates… good luck hope she is ok and will be fine without him

How can I tell if my Rosa Bourke parakeet is a male or female?
The Bourkes Parakeet can be visually sexed.
The female Bourkes Parakeet is smaller than the male and has a white brow above the nares, a white wing stripe, and are generally duller in color than the males.
The males are larger and have a blue band of feathers above the nares, blue along the bend of their wing, paler blue on the flanks, side of their rump, and under thair tail.
Females may have blue above the nares but it’s much duller.
Mature males have a blue crown on their forehead and brighter blue on their wings.
Hens and juvenile Bourkes parrots have a full grey head while the hen can be distinguised from the juvenile by their more pink coloration.
Adolescent Bourkes have duller coloration and lack the blue band above the nares.
I’m ready to buy a “pet” rosa bourke parakeet, but can’t decide on a boy or girl. I really would like a male. In the book “Bourke’s Parakeets” by Doreen Haggard, it’s stated that the cock has a lovely temperament and handles very well…the hen squawks a little and might give a little nip. Is there really a major difference between the sexes?
