    Hello, A baby cockatiel was hand fed and the formula was pushed down the left side of the cockatiels mouth. Did it go down the wind pipe? What do I do? I’m so scared.

    This morning I made myself some oatmeal with banana, organic steel cut oats, oatmilk, a touch of powdered Cinammon from the Badia brand, and a lemon peel. My tiel sneakily started tasting my breakfast and seemed to LOVE it. He would not stop taking little bites out of the oats. I let him have a...

    So my cockatiel does what you can see in the photo and normally is just for a bit or until i open the cage so i think it's a sort of attention-seeking behaviour just to get out of the cage but i want to make sure it's nothing serious. Anybody knows what is it and why she does it?

    Im a fairly new bird owner and I have a cockatiel about 6mth old. Recently (1wk ago), I went out and came back in the evening, there were a few specks of blood at the bottom of her cage, it had come from her wing. It was clotted so I thought it was alright (vets near my area are really...

    Hi there! This is regarding my lovely little 4 year old female cockatiel Teddy. Just over the last two weeks or so she has started constantly mleming - like a tongue roll with very slight beak grind. She also tends to hunch over a little while doing it. Almost every spare second that isn't...

    Hi ya, everyone, I would like to show you all pictures of my baby Stitch. He is not my first bird, I did have cockatiels while I was growing up.

    They are about 9 and 5 months old. They like to chill and do stuff they are not allowed to do. One likes to sing a lot the other prefers silence. The previous owner said the white one is a girl and the greyyellow one a boy. I’m not sure though.

    My cockatiel Rosie has been limping for the past 2 days and when perching on my finger or anywhere else, she barely touches her right foot to the perch/ground. I picked her up and looked at her foot but couldn’t find anything wrong, no discoloration, no blood, nothing swollen or out of place...

    Hi. I adopted two female cockatiels 3 weeks ago. One I was told was about 2 years old but she wasn't sure because she isn't the original owner. The feathers on the back of her head are very scruffy and seems to sleep a lot. She eats and drinks normally, sleeps on one foot a lot. Plays in short...

    I have a 3 year old cockatiel that's been with us for a little over a year. He's very friendly with hands and affection and he'll stay on your hand or shoulder/somewhere else you put him if you leave his room with him, if he is placed anywhere other than his cage or his playground in his room...

    This is my first time ever owning a bird of any sort so the fact that they can hide their sicknesses so well gives me terrible anxiety when I have to leave over the weekend. Recently I've noticed some changes in my birds behavior, his name is Wrin. He is very fluffed up a lot of the time, more...

    I was hoping for somebody's input on what to do with my "sick" cockatiel chick. We weren't able to visit a vet due to the virus, and any help would be greatly appreciated. The chick is one of 3 in a clutch that hatched around 3 weeks ago, and he's the youngest at around 10 days old. As a 3-4 day...
