  4. Bald patch on his back

    Your Cockatiels Health
    So I found this empty patch on my cockatiel yesterday and it looks like the feathers have been eaten or something and just the base remains.

  7. What's wrong with my Cockatiel?

    Your Cockatiels Health
    Today around 1 (it's 3:30 now) I came home and she was sitting on the bottom of her cage, which, in the 2 weeks I've had her, she has never done that, or if I set her down there, she climbed up right away.

  10. Cockatiel with watery droppings

    Your Cockatiels Health
    My female cockatiel Elika has recently had really watery droppings. I have made a vet appointment for her but can't get in to see him until July 11th.
