Even though Schroeder was put in the carrier to take back ,
Alexandra knew she could not do it,
none of the family had the heart to get rid of Schroeder
so now they have a couple living next to the spinster, Georgia .
Georgia used to coo all the time but there is lots of silence now ,
the couple are just friends ,
the female refuses to use the nest and just drops her eggs.
Recently the male and Georgia have been seen eyeing each other
from their cages..
Alexandra thinks it might just be possible to introduce
to poor Georgia now who is forever sitting on unfertilized eggs
with tender loving care.
Georgia reminds Alexandra of Jemima , from Beatrix Potter
who was a wondering duck that was too impatient to sit on her eggs,
Jemina would sit a long time on her eggs but they never hatched,
she couldn't understand why and kept trying.
Alexandra thinks that, maybe Schroeder
ought to be renamed Jemima :-)
