    My cockatiel, Archie, is about 6 months old. He seems healthy, eating, drinking and active! i noticed the other night he started tapping his foot and will occasionally then pick at it. I can’t seem to see anything where he’s picking but not sure what it could be otherwise. Any help would be...

    So last week, April 30th, I bought my cockatiel, Taylor. It wasn’t a, “oh I chose this bird because I liked it” situation. Taylor chose me… he/she (don’t know the gender) waited at the cage door for me to pick ‘em up and let me pet him/her and then DID NOTTTTTT want to go back in the cage. The...

    I had adopted my baby cockatiel yesterday, her name is Sugar. The first day I let her be. Today I have taught her to eat millet out of my hand, but she takes it very aggressively. I have also taught her to step-up but she is uncomfortable with my hand being below her without a treat distracting...

    My cockatiel always acts playful, flys around, and sings. But recently he has been moving his beak in a weird way which makes me think something is going on with him, he makes this movement all the time now and not only after he eats. He is not showing any signs of sickness as he still has...

    Hello. I recently got a cockatiel (6 days ago) and I have noticed that he constantly tilts his head. I know birds usually do this to look at the ceiling or floor. But he is doing it all the time and I’m starting to become a little bit concerned, I’m just wondering if maybe there is a reason for...

    Hello, has anyone got advice for cockatiels food or what they enjoy on a nice sunny day. Yesterday I put them outside and sprayed them with some water (they didn’t like the water) but enjoyed staying outside.

    My cockatiel Chika absolutely hates baths. He’s 7 months old and only took his first bath at 4-5 months old. it is only rarely that I can get him to bathe. Usually, he’d fly away as soon as I start spraying with his spray bottle. (I don’t spray at him. I spray on my arm and act like I’m having a...

    Hello! This is what my cockatiel looks like… it’s a boy and we got him from a pet store. The pet store’s conditions were horrible, they fed the cockatiels with seeds in bulk that probably lead to bacteria… The people there’s told me “the parrots are just fighting with each other that’s why they...

    Hi everyone, my wife and I recently got a hand raised cockatiel. We got the cockatiel when he/she (we don’t know the sex yet) was about 12 weeks old and we’ve had it for 3 weeks now. I think it’s gotten really comfortable with me since I work from home and I put the tiel on my desk while I work...

    Does anyone have any unisex name suggestions for my pearl-pied ‘tiel? He/she is super cheeky and loves to get in on everything I’m doing. I just haven’t found a name that sticks. This is him/her chilling on my shoulder:) Thanks!

    My Pet Tiel Happy is very active and eating his foods as usual. however, I notice a difference in his volume of poop. the column of poop is very much reduced. Could it be a issue?

    Hello, I'm new here. I joined because I have a 3 year old male Lutino Cockatiel named Castiel (Cas for short) and I wanted to see how I could make him happier. I also have two budgies named Tesla and Ivianna (originally Ivan until we found out he could lay eggs lol).

    My cockatiel Coco 5 months old has his wing dropping and is really sleepy. His wing was like this earlier today when he didn’t land correctly. So we took him to a vet and they said it was due to an abnormal blood feather so they pulled it out and then he was looking good again. About 20 minutes...

    Hello, Just a few hours ago I noticed my cockatiel pika had blood underneath both of her wings. It’s dry blood but I’m scared because I don’t know what it is. She doesn’t appear to be in pain at all, she’s being normal. I tried my best to take a video but she began being aggressive as I tried...
