    Cockatiel Talk
    I have two tiels and a parakeet (all are males). The tiels have been in the same cage (It's a cage for macaws) for about three years and for the past couple of months they've been fighting each other so much to the point where I have to put them in separate cages. However, after about a day of...

    So I have had a budgie for a few weeks before i got my 'tiel. When ever they get close together the lunge at each other with their beaks.

    Your Cockatiels Health
    I have a male and female - they are about one year and I have had them for about 2 months. They bicker and nip at each other occasionally, but I've considered this normal behavior.

    Your Cockatiels Health
    I just read a post someone else has written about a similar problem. Harley has a bald patch but it seems to only be on one eye. He and Rosie do have little squabbles sometime so I think she must've pulled some of his feathers out. Here's a photo of it as well as a couple of updated photos of...

    Hi i have two beautiful cockatiels, not exactly sure what sex they are. My problem started a week ago when they had a night fright while i was out, both wings on both birds were bleeding but it had stopped by the time i had gotten home.

  7. How to deal with cockatiels fighting?

    Cockatiel Talk
    So my cockatiels have always squabbled a bit ever since I first got them. Recently it's started to become a problem though. They mostly fight at dusk as they start to settle in for the night. They'll both be moving around the cage trying to find a comfy spot for a few minutes. Then one of them...
  8. Cockatiels not getting along

    Cockatiel Talk
    Hi, Firstly I am new to this forum so hello everyone :) Ok so I started out by buying a lutino female cockatiel, from the day I got her when she was 8 weeks old, she seemed a bit snappy, but I thought as time went on she would settle down. About 3 months later I bought a yellow and grey boy at...

    Cockatiel Talk

My two boys are pretty bonded but as they are young i'm sure they wouldn't mind. My worry is when they mature would they fight over her? I wouldn't get her if thats the case. They...
