    Your Cockatiels Health
    Hello, I have problem with my male cockatiel (10 years old). I have noticed that he often puts the beak in the parts of the gland. It started two days ago.

    My lutino walks with his feet pointing towards eachother so much that he often ends up standing on his other foot or tripping over his own feet! What's up with that? Anyone else had this?

    Bumblefoot? Buster has always had a bum toe on her right foot making it to where she has to rest on it a different way. While I was just checking her over I noticed that the pad around her bum foot is scaly, and the center of the part she rests on has a dark scab. She's acting just fine, but...

    So Charlie got his nails trimmed and wings clipped at the vets today. He can still fly, but not like he used to be able to, and when he took off today he flew around a bit struggling to get height and then landed with a small thump.

    Hey there everyone! It's great to find a site like this I've got so many questions already!! Does anyone know why my little bird lifts his foot in the air when he talks? It's not aggressive at all and he is very tame and healthy and happy. It makes him look like he is holding a microphone-...
  9. Is my cockatiel sick...??????? :(

    Your Cockatiels Health
    I have a 5 year old cockatiel. He's been biting his left foot for about a couple of years now (so yeah it's been a while). I've taken him to a couple of avian vets. The 1st avian vet I went to was completely crap. She gave me not a single cure for my poor bird and sold me some pellets (which his...
