    Your Cockatiels Health
    I’ve had these 2 male cockatiels for about 7 months now and they are very very attached to each other. The lady I purchased them from had them both for a few years, their names are Peache and Charlie. Peache was a pied-ish cockatiel with a small bald spot on his head she got from a petstore and...

    Cockatiel Talk
    I have two Cockatiels that come from the same breeder, and they both seem fight a bit. I'm curious if this would be normal behavior? I know it's normal for siblings to bicker once in a while but i want to know if it's the same with cockatiels.

  6. Keep Ants From Getting Into Cages

    Cockatiel Talk
    So I saw this product and it reminded me of some threads I saw a while ago about ants getting into cages people keep outside or inside and ants somehow climb up. I think they solved it with water dishes on the legs of the cage, but if anyone is having this problem it looks like reptile keepers...
  7. Questions about Moving Cockatiels with eggs

    Cockatiel Breeding
    We have recently came across a pair of cockatiels that have eggs about 5 days from hatching. But the birds need to be taken out of the present situation. The eggs are fertile and both parents are really good about sitting, they have been sitting since the third egg. Eggs 4 and 5 came 2 and 4...

    Cockatiel Talk
    Ziggi is finally getting a bigger cage, I'm not quite sure the dimensions but there's a photo of it bellow. I know it's quite small but it's taken 4 years to convince my parents to get him a slightly bigger cage. I want it to be still not large as it's going to be an inside hallway cage so it...
  11. Informing the general populous that is my speech class.

    Cockatiel Talk
    So a while ago I posted that I was doing a speech on how to choose the right species of parrot for you. Well, my professor vetoed that topic. But this speech is informative, so I'm doing it on cockatiels. Initially it was going to be on parrots but that was way too broad haha. So if anyone has...

  14. Cockatiels Eating their eggs?

    Cockatiel Breeding
    So my cockatiel laid 5 eggs, I looked in her box this morning and there was only 4 chicks. This is the first time I had seen the chicks since they were hatched. I am thinking they ate the last egg because there was a white powder on the bottom of the cage. Do they eat unfertile eggs or eating...

    Cockatiel Breeding
    okay, so I woke up this morning, started my daily routine, feeding the fish, giving the birds food, and fresh water, when in the corner of my eye I noticed something odd. I occasionally put toys in the cage, but I didn't put this in there. On closer inspection it turned out to be an egg! what...

    Cockatiel Breeding
    I'm new here, but I've been reading a lot of the threads here. My cockatiels are Fred and Iris and they just had their first clutch hatch! I really did not expect any babies to hatch, so to see 5 hatch is amazing. And another surprise, apparently Fred is split whiteface! All 5 little babies are...
