  1. Training and Bonding
    My cockatiel isn't trained yet. He is with me for almost 20 days. He cut his 10 days in fear or aggression, then started getting used to me. He was finger trained,now he has forgotten what trained he was. He immediately runs on my shoulders, bites and all. I want to limit the timings but I am...
  2. Cockatiel Breeding
    Hello! I have a 4 yr old single female named Opal, who I'm fairly sure is broody? Lately, she's been being very... "flirty" with her toys, and I've noticed her frequently hanging out in the corner of the bottom of her cage for the past couple of days. She would come back up and want out though...

    Two days ago my cockatiel had a crash landing while trying to fly back to his cage. That afternoon and night he seemed completely normal (stretching, perching, eating). The next afternoon I noticed he was a bit lethargic (still perching) but was squinty. This morning he seems the same and I have...

    My Female 9 month old cockatiel hit a window today at about a medium speed. She’s been tiered for the past couple hours and has a hard time keeping her eyes open. As far as I can tell she’s not poofed up and she still prefers the top of the cage. She also hasn’t eaten since the ordeal but she...

    My handraised female and semi tame male cockatiel are 2 and 3 years old and ready to mate. However today my female performed a mating call, not to my male, but when she was with me?! Does she not like the male, or does she and I've just taken her out at a bad time? The male, is constantly...

    Hi, We got Ziggy a few days ago from an avian centre and have just realised 2 of his toes (are they even called that?) are facing upwards, unlike all the others. I’ll attach pics. As we’ve only had him for a few days and he isn’t tamed yet, we really don’t want to stress him out and take him...

    I apologise in advance for the long post. A relative bought a pair of cockatiels in March of this year. Two weeks after, one of them had a seizure and sadly passed away with no one ever finding out what had happened to it. The other one seemed to thrive from this day forward, and all was okay...

    During the night, my female cockatiel makes a very odd creaking noise. While sneezing (I think). After I take her out, she usually stops making it while sneezing after half an hour or so. My guess is that it may be like how mucus can gather out our nasal area during the night if the air is too...

    Hello. Summer is coming and that can only mean one thing for us bird people; its egg laying season. We have 2 cockatiels, out of which I know that at least one is female. We know that one is female because it laid eggs. 4 days ago, on the 22nd of May 2021, we found that our (almost) 2 year old...

    Hi all, I very recently started fostering. I grew up with a few types of birds - budgies, a lovebird, then my mom had a grey shortly before I moved out. I'd been pet-less since then, for about the past decade. Wanting to try having a bird again, I decided to foster and my husband was okay with...

    So I got my tiel 5 days ago. She's generally really calm and doesn't get spooked by much, is seemingly hand-fed/hand-reared and doesn't have a problem with hands. She doesn't know how to step up but will climb onto my hand if I offer her millet. I talk to her often both when she's in the cage...

    As of this morning, Cicero started making these weird ''snotty'' and ''hiccup'' sounds. I have no clue as to what they are or if she's in any danger. I'm worried that maybe she's sick or has something caught in her throat. However, her poop is normal and she doesn't really have the typical sick...

    Is it possible to get my bird completely detached from his mirror reflection? I've had this problem ever since I got him, even with the mirrors covered for months he still goes crazy whenever he encounters them and screams until he gets his way. We even got him another cockatiel companion some...

    Unless I am physically in bed, my cockatiel will not settle down in his cage to sleep, he'll keep screaming until I let him out. He always wakes up when I do as well, and immediately wants to get out of the cage. I go to bed around 11 PM and wake up around 8:30 AM. It's very hard to force him to...

I fed him les than 8 cc at 11 p.m. and today at 12 p.m. his crop is not fully empty, I acted on panic and fed him the 'papaya cream' people use to empty...
