Hi Tara,

w3c to the community, we are glad to have +1 kakariki fan.
And by the way we seem to have a nice group of people from UK, that's really nice.

I believe your hen is probably making a mating call.
About introduction of a new bird, this has been discussed before, try to use the search function on "introduction" "new bird/male/female" etc... there are even some recent topics about this since it's a recurrent topic.
It depends on how big is the cage, how aggressive is the bird you have at home etc...
General suggestion is to place the bird in a different cage next to the bird you have at home and let them spend time in a neutral place, like for instance a room during flight time.

Then when you think they get on well you can place them together in the same cage and supervise.

Usually single birds are a bit more likely to accept a new mate in the cage but not always.

Cheers / Pablo
