    Crystal doesn't seem to like eating pellets at all. I tried feeding him a small amount of it only to find him eating all the seeds in the end. I tried grinding the pellets into powder, mixed it with the seeds together, I tried adding water to create some sort of mushed food. He doesn't seem to...

    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.

    Hi, I have just gotten a pair of cockatiels and am trying to find the best food for them. The previous owner fed them on an all-seed diet (which is of course unhealthy) and I'm trying to get them to eat fruit and veggies. I removed seed from their diet in hope that they would take an interest in...

    Hello, I adopted a cockatiel, he likes me and will call to me, grind his break, and eat treats from my fingers. He likes to ride on my shoulders which I have heard is not good. He will not step up unless it is to jump off right away to my shoulder. He will even fly to my shoulder, when he...

    This morning I made myself some oatmeal with banana, organic steel cut oats, oatmilk, a touch of powdered Cinammon from the Badia brand, and a lemon peel.

    As the title says, I'm going to get a cockatiel (probably in Jan) and I'm doing some planning for cage set up. I have some doubts w.r.t that 1. I can't find calcium sticks anywhere near me. I can only get mineral/calcium blocks. I read that calcium sticks file the bird's claws when they perch on...

    My female cockatiel, Ori, is obsessed with eating poop and the paper lining on her cage bottom. I've heard that this is a common thing with tiels, but is there any way to reduce this? I've provided her with practically every nutrient that I got. Ori isn't a picky eater, she will eat mostly...

    So I bought this http://www.petshop18.com/tropifit-parrot-food because it's the only pellets I could find at local stores. But it's for larger parrots. Can my cockatiel eat it? It says it contains "Green, black and white pepper" . Is that safe for them ?
