  1. Aggresive Behavior

    Cockatiel Talk
    I have had a male cockatiel, Loki, for over a year. He is not the friendliest bird and wont come out of his cage most of the time. Since he doesn't like being handled as much, I found a female cockatiel, Freya, for him to spend time with/bond with (hopefully). I had my parents watching them...
  2. Help with aggressive / scared bird

    Cockatiel Talk
    Hi, I have had my cockatiel for a year now after his previous owner moved to a non-pet friendly building. My cockatiel (Joey) is 4 years old and apperentaly has always been a very scared/loud bird. He has never let me touch him and hisses / bites whenever I try to train/tame him or put my hand...
  3. Possible nesting aggression? Advice appreciated!

    Training and Bonding
    Hi, I hope I'm posting this in the right place, I've come here because I have a Cockatiel who is roughly 5 months old, we have had him for about 2 months now. The main issue we have ran into is he seems to be attempting to nest on nearly everything that he can sit on within his cage. We have...
  4. Flying attacks/aggression

    Cockatiel Talk
    Hi ! So I'm considering consulting a behaviorist for this, because I don't really know what's going on, but I'm gonna try this forum first. (re-using this summary from another post) To summarize Mocha a bit, he's 3 and a half years old, he's a male cockatiel, and I got him from a good breeder...
  5. Aggressiveness. At wit's end.

    Training and Bonding
    This will be a long post, but I need advice. We've had Pip for just over one year. He was always a mistrustful bird. We were new 'Tiel owners so maybe we screwed something up, I don't know. But I did so much research before we brought him home and can honestly say I've done my best for him...
  6. Little butt is hard to train

    Training and Bonding
    I got a Good Bird Inc. training video for Simon, just the basic behavioral training video, and I don't even know how to start it. When Simon sees my hands he either bites or steps up, so when I'm trying to get him to target with my hands he just bites or steps up. And he gets so incredibly...
  7. Don't know what to do with him...

    Training and Bonding
    I have a very pretty boy named Sunny whom I recently adopted from an ASPCA. I read his medical profile and it said he was five years old, which is way too old to be acting like this. He's so funny and sweet until he realizes you're a person and are within his reach. I immediately recognized his...
  8. Two breeding questions/problems

    Cockatiel Breeding
    So I have two 'tiels that have been trying to nest off and on for about a year now. I've been doing all I can to prevent it, but I'm getting very concerned for her health so I have finally given in and are letting them raise their first clutch. My first worry is if they will go back to their...
