getting a bird
I’m interested in getting a cockatiel but was wondering if I should look at getting a pair. I work 8 hours a day but otherwise have no other commitments and I don’t want my bird to become lonely. Also, would a male or female be better? Thanks in advance!
Budgie and Cockatiel Nutri-Berry
I’m hoping to eventually house my two cockatiels with my two budgies, assuming they get along alright. If I am successful with this, is it okay if my budgies eat the cockatiel’s Nutri-Berries and vice versa for the cockatiels eating the budgie’s Nutri-Berries? I understand they have different nutritional needs, but is this okay? Or […]

How to tame
I bought a cockatiel in June 2018 from a pet store. He doesn’t let me pet him. When I go to stroke his back, he runs or starts “yelling” at me. Maybe someone grabbed him too tightly at the store. I don’t know. Do you have any suggestions? He is a good talker and so […]

I recently purchased a three month old cockatiel. He seems very skittish. He just stays on his perch all day. He will perch on our finger long enough to fly off and fall to the floor just to sit there unmoved in the same place. I am afraid he is not eating or drinking enough. […]

First time pet owner
I’m looking at getting a small bird, likely a cockatiel, once I finish my schooling. Our family owns a cat so the only places that would be safe for it would be in a cage either outside the house, but close and in constant view, or in my room. I’ve read that it is bad […]
Hi! I recently adopted a 10 year old male cockatiel. He was eating a terrible seed diet until he came to live with me, however, he has been very picky! Do you have any samples to try? Anything, including advice, is appreciated!
Cockatiel behavior Part 2
