  1. Cockatiel Breeding
    Hi, peeps! It's my first post and my first experience having cockatiel babies. Also english is not my first language, so pardon me. About Nesting I have a hen that I thought was infertile (she never laid eggs). She and my cinnamon male kinda of made a nesting on my closet, behind some shoes...
  2. Cockatiel Mutations and Genetics
    I was just wondering if anyone could tell me the genetics of my birds based on offspring, such as what recessive genetics the parents may and also identify any in the babies as I am no good at it. I know that the dad is pearl already (split or visual I couldn't say), the mother is a WF cinnamon...

    I recently purchased a beautiful pair, healthy sweet and experienced breeders. They were sitting on 4 eggs when I brought them home, they have a wonderful environment and diet and are well loved. So far, the hen has stopped at 10 EGGS :wacko: We have 2 perfect babies hatched, all eggs seem fine...

    Hi Everyone, This is my first post on here, it's so good to have a community I can ask about my beautiful birds. I recently got two babies (Lily and Daisy, 7 weeks old - they are now ~12-13 weeks old), they are brother and sister and were inseparable from the beginning, I was initially going...

    Now that Baby, or Artemis as s/he is named now, is just barely weaned, I started hearing strange chirps again... "This can't be right, they can't still be feeding her?" I thought...well they aren't! THERE ARE 4! FOUR!!! hatchlings in the nest! HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE?! These birds, that have...

    I'm so overly anxious about these babies...but I noticed today their poop seems pretty watery. Is that normal? They eat formula and also mess around with seed, millet, and maybe drink a bit of water out of my other bird's bowl. I'll see how it is tomorrow and will mix the formula a little...

    I know this is a common problem, especially around this age (4-5 weeks). I'm just so worried they're not getting enough food. They never want to eat formula, so I have to hold them firmly and give them the food. They eat it a bit, but continue to struggle a lot. I can never get them to eat it...

    I have 2 4-week old cockatiels and they're inside a glass aquarium when they're not being held, but they seem very active and flutter around so I'm wondering when it'll be okay to move them into a cage. The one I have doesn't have a grate on the bottom.

    I'm getting 2 four week old cockatiels on Monday. The breeder told me they're both female, but I don't think she had them DNA sexed, so I'm not sure. As far as I can tell, both parents are split pied, the mama is cinnamon and the dad is a normal grey split lutino. I know he's split lutino...

    Hi, I have 3 baby cockatiels. They were each hatched 1 day apart and the oldest turns 7 weeks tomorrow. The father was removed when the oldest was 8 days old because of feather plucking the babies. The mama passed away on Feb 21 due to complications of being egg bound. The youngest turned 5...

    My boy is a wf grey pearl pied split to cinnamon. If I were to breed him with a Lutino female what would I get? Yes I ask a lot of these questions I know but you guys have helped me a lot and stopped me making a lot of beginners mistakes so I like to run it by you before I go ahead and do something!

    Hi guys. So my two tiels, who never seemed to get along too well, were caught mating about 2 weeks ago. They've been super aggressive and hiding under everything, loving corners and under my bed. On Saturday, I believe, I found an egg under my bed. The next day there were two under my bed...

    I will be bringing my two new babies home soon. They have different parents and are about 10 days apart in age. They have been hand fed and lived together since the beginning. My breeder (Misfit Aviary) spends lots of time interacting with them. Since they will be coming home together and are...
