    Your Cockatiels Health
    I found this strange thing on my cockatiel's beak. It's not stuck food, I tried gently rubbing it with water. What do I do? Is a vet visit necessary? She is 6 weeks old.
  2. Hi! New "abandoned" baby tiel parent (taking advice! a bit of a long post)

    Hey ya'll! [A bit of a (trigger) warning for missing birbs.] So, I've had two cockatiels for around two years now, Romeo and Lestat, and they quite recently had a baby! (they had 3 eggs, but one wasn't strong enough to hatch and was found it too late and the other one died in their first day, I...

  4. How often should a baby/young tiel poop?

    Cockatiel Breeding
    An 8 week old in particular? Do they poop less often than adults? Mine don't poop every 20 minutes like I know adults should, I've seen them poop 30-60 minute intervals and sometimes more (during the day) but all the poops are consistent in size and shape etc. They eat for most of the day too so...

    Cockatiel Talk
    Hi! It's been a while since posting here. There are two baby cockatiels (:grey tiel: :lutino: ) that I have fallen in love with, and the breeder said they would be ready after June 5. From my phone conversation (although the line was a little muffled), I learned they are not hand fed but are...

    Cockatiel Pictures
    I got this little guy because he has a splayed leg, soooooo, we couldn't really sell him. Bean was thought to be a white face but his crest and cheeks just popped out some yellow! He was bred in an aviary so I have no idea his parents.

    This is my favorite video of my 4 week old cockatiel Alpha. It looks like its either saying "Hey come on, no okay ill go myself" or " wanna play? you count and ill hide"

  10. Helping baby?

    Cockatiel Talk
    Okay, so Kiwi started coming out of the nest :) She is very clumsy on the bottom of the cage, the parents were feeding her. As far as I know at this age they still need the warm temperature of the nest most times (she is 28 days old). Looks like she cannot figure out how to get back in the nest...

    Cockatiel Breeding
    I have a normal gray (from what I see) cockatiel pair. The mom laid 4 eggs but only 2 were successful.

    Your Cockatiels Health
    Hi everyone. I'm knowledgable about a lot of animals but honestly, this is stumping me. This cockatiel baby will be 7 weeks tomorrow. She has all her tail feathers and what I would call "flight feathers" but the rest of her wings and body are completely bald. If this wasn't one of my own...

    Your Cockatiels Health
    This is Rango, my second cockatiel but my first baby tiel. First off, I would like to say the problem I am having is that my baby almost died. I missed a late night feeding, and woke up to a barely conscience bird. He has since been revived but I wonder if he is thin for his age. The only clue...
