  3. 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.

He has those every so often, especially when molting (he currently is). After his night fright, I calmed him down like usual and everything was normal. Then all of a...

  10. Cockatiel wants to chew on everything?

    Training and Bonding
    My cockatiel, Louie, has recently gotten into this phase of eating/chewing on everything in sight! He's about 8 years old. He keeps trying to eat our chairs and couches with cloth material on them. He gets angry if you try to stop him and hisses! When he's not chewing on the furniture or things...
