    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 got a baby cockatiel handed to me yesterday after the mother refused to feed him anymore. The guy said his next feeding was in about 5 hours. 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...

    So my cockatiel does what you can see in the photo and normally is just for a bit or until i open the cage so i think it's a sort of attention-seeking behaviour just to get out of the cage but i want to make sure it's nothing serious. Anybody knows what is it and why she does it?

    I've started moving recently, and with the new house comes a lot of new outdoor space. However, the house itself doesn't really have a big enough area to store a giant aviary. I'm looking to build a walk-in outdoor aviary for my cockatiel that can be de-assembled easily since most of the...

    Hey guys I hope I'm in the right spot. I have been looking for a cocktail that is like a Lutino but with yellow cheeks or very light orange instead of red cheeks or dark orange. I can't seem to find anyone who has them and was wondering if anyone could give me some info on any breeders they know...

    Hello! I’m looking for any tips for a new cockatiel I’m getting next week from a breeder near me. I have owned parrots before but never a cockatiel. Breeder suggested limiting interaction with new baby to 2 10 minute sessions daily for the first 3 weeks baby is home. Is this recommended? diet...

    This is my first time ever owning a bird of any sort so the fact that they can hide their sicknesses so well gives me terrible anxiety when I have to leave over the weekend. Recently I've noticed some changes in my birds behavior, his name is Wrin. He is very fluffed up a lot of the time, more...
