    Hello everyone! My cockatiel laid her first egg 2 days ago. She is about 2,5 years old, she is the only bird that we have and hasn't had a male, so the egg is unfertilised. During the day, she doesn't care almost at all about the egg, but in the evening she gets very protective and doesn't want...

    2+ year old tiel, first time egg laying. She hasn’t laid an egg yet but showing signs of labour from time to time, feeling heavier and acting broody. Male keeps trying to hop on top of her, they’ve done it 3 times in the past 2 days. If she has a suspected egg on the way, is it ok to allow them...

    Luna is between 6 and 12 months. Her wings look like they've been clipped but are not straight-cut so I presume they have been growing back for a few months(?) I'm just bird-minding her for a few weeks, so I'm not sure. I've set up branches around our dining table chairs and her cage for her to...

    I got my cockatiel, Birdadette (Bird for short), about four years ago. She laid one egg about a year or so after I got her and hasn't laid one since. The first egg was a major surprise to both of us, and she wanted nothing to do with it, so after 3 days I removed it. So no eggs or any sign of...

    I don't know why but my little :tiel4: cockatiel has loved imitating whistles since she was young. Which led to us getting her DNA tested to see if she was a male. Her name is Pikapi.. so she used to say 'Pika' now I tried wolf whistling and she's learned to imitate too. Do you think I could...

    Hello everyone I currently have two cockatiels. One of which is male and the other female. The male is extremely well trained and loves a good head scratching but the female on the other hand just hates us.... She likes to climb all over us but does not like our hands and will not step up. She...

    Hai everyone, I have a problem, my cockatiel Raiden has a swollen chest and I have no idea what's wrong. I cannot get a hold of my vet. The nearest avian vet is far away and I don't even own a car nor license, so I would have to use public transport which is not the most reliable of sources...

    DNA is back and she's a girl! Everyone predicted otherwise, even the vet, but buttercup is just crafty like that. I'm still having trouble believing it, she just seemed so male. How accurate are these tests? Oh well. Keep on rejecting those gender roles, butter!
  15. Cockatiel Mutations and Genetics
    I have no experience telling the gender of a bird just by looking. If I had to guess, I'd say this bird is a male. It is 2 1/2 months old. Any guesses?
  16. Cockatiel Breeding
    hey guys! So I have had my female cockatiel for a year and a half. She is almost 2 years old. She was never attracted to the male I got her first. He died cause he ate something wrong around the house. I got her another male and she is still the same way. She isn't attracted to him and will bite...

    Hello, I recently got a new 4 month old cockatiel that is confusing me with her behavior. She doesn't like to be in her cage and prefers to sit on my shoulder. When I go to move her (or any time I want her to step up) she hisses and bites my finger. I don't let it stop me so I just hold my hand...

    Today and yesterday I was giving Luma some head and neck scratches and she suddenly started making odd chirping sounds, her chrest went really low and her whole body kind of... flattened? Not sure how to describe it. Bit worried, did I hurt her? Never seen her do this before, I stopped...

    Yep, she's finally home now, I reserved her at my local pet shop about a week ago (was waiting for the cage, etc to arrive) and was finally able to bring her home earlier this evening. We've named her Luma, she is about 1 year old and has settled in well so far. She doesn't seem to afraid of...

    Hey Everyone, Lulu is about 11months old, and I got her when she was about 2 months old. But since I was going away for 10 weeks, I left her in the custody of my parents, and bought her so so many new toys to keep her from getting bored without me. One of which was a cute little mirror, with a...
