  1. 1st Clutch and Worried :/

    Your Cockatiels Health
    Despite all efforts to avoid this, Luma laid her first egg last Tuesday. It looked fine, she has completely ignored it and I left it at the bottom of the cage on some kitchen towel. After spending the last few days researching the laying process I expected egg 2 to arrive in a couple of days...
  2. Busters First Clutch. Not Always Sitting On The Eggs.

    Cockatiel Breeding
    So.. I have two cockatiels. I thought they were both male until May 19th I found an egg. Then on the 21st I found another egg.

  5. Single female with too many clutches?

    Cockatiel Breeding
    For a few months we had a cockatiel that would masturbate all the time. We knew this was bad and tried to discourage her by coving her, changing her cage around. But nothing stopped her! We kept her perches insanely clean to avoid infection. One evening, a few months ago she started to sit in...

    This is my almost-weaned cockatiel clutch! These four babies are HUGE, topping out at 129 grams, 134 grams, 128 grams and 123 grams before losing a little to learn to fly. They are all eating fresh foods, seeds, millet and drinking water from a dish. They still take formula, each refusing...
  7. About My Absence and 3 Week Old Chicks - Lots of Lovely Pictures!

    Cockatiel Breeding
    To get straight to the point, I went through a spurt of depression after having lost one of the chicks from my pastelface/whiteface breeding. I really tried hard to give that baby everything it needed when I realized it didn't appear to by thriving, but it just wasn't enough and I've been very...
  8. My single female laid an egg!

    Cockatiel Breeding
    I meant to post some tips on the subject earlier so here it goes. I know it can be pretty scary to find an egg in your 'tiel's cage, especially when you weren't expecting it. It's normal for females to have a clutch sometime during their life. It usually will happen when your 'tiel is happy and...
