    I’m going to keep this as short as possible, I’m conflicted about getting him a female mate long term, we sadly live in a small home and won’t be able to house any baby birds later on and I feel if they do mate and have baby birds I’m going to have to sell them, they get depressed and it all...

    looking for some advice. I have had my first tiel Sunny for just over a year he’s pretty gentle and has a great personality with me. I got a second Tiel Frankie about 3 weeks ago and they don’t seem to get along too well. Frankie is also pretty gentle and they’re both pretty cuddly. At first...

    Hello everyone, I've been reading a lot of posts here since I got Luffy and I just joined because I really needed some advice. I have hand raised Luffy since he was one month and also trained him. The problem I've been having for the last 4 months that is driving me crazy is that he is too...

    Hi I'm wondering what could be the reason for my bird to have 4 infertile eggs with her 3rd clutch. Usually in a clutch there is only 1 that's not fertile between 5 eggs. So what went wrong? Could it be because it was to close to her last clutch?

    Hello! I have a 4 yr old single female named Opal, who I'm fairly sure is broody? Lately, she's been being very... "flirty" with her toys, and I've noticed her frequently hanging out in the corner of the bottom of her cage for the past couple of days. She would come back up and want out though...

    So I got my tiel 5 days ago. She's generally really calm and doesn't get spooked by much, is seemingly hand-fed/hand-reared and doesn't have a problem with hands. She doesn't know how to step up but will climb onto my hand if I offer her millet. I talk to her often both when she's in the cage...

    Hi everyone. We just got a cockatiel yesterday evening. I’m just wondering if you have tips on what to do and what not to do as this is our first bird.

    :pied: I have had my cockatiel for a while now and have just found out that it is a female! However, I do not see it laying any eggs so that is a little concerning since my cockatiel was found I do not know if she is at the right age for it or if this is a big deal or not. I also want to get my...

    Hi! A few days ago I got a new cockatiel, and it's my first time owning one. I have read that the first few days I just have to leave him be, but the cage it's on my bedroom and sometimes he just starts pacing from side to side in the little perch inside the cage, sometimes even screaming or...

    I had found my cockatiel on the streets a couple of months ago. I put my hand down and it hopped onto it so I decided to take him home and raise it. My mom and I have been caring for him for a couple of months now and we really are beginners at this. We never thought we would be getting a...

    I've had my cockatiel for quite a long time and I've been struggling to get her to eat anything other than seeds. I've tried leaving them close to where she likes to perch, putting them in a bowl for her to eat, I've even tried showing her that it's safe to eat. I don't think she knows that she...

    Hey everyone, I have some questions regarding part of my cockatiel's diet. I'm feeding Puck a 50/50 mixture made up of a seedmix for lovebirds (it was the only good quality mix I could get, that also didn't contain sunflower seeds) and Versele-Laga's NutriBird B14 pellets. I started this...
