  1. First Moult and stopped singing?

    Your Cockatiels Health
    Hello again! So Jiji has started his first moult. He's super grumpy. I also recently got a new tiel (Nova) just before he started moulting. Recently, Jiji hasn't been whistling much. While he never really sang, he did used to whistle and chatter a lot. I'm worried that it has something to do...
  2. Moulting causing itching or something else?

    Your Cockatiels Health
    Hi - I thought at first that my bird was going through a heavy molt but now I am starting to think that something else might be going on. He has been losing feathers for about 6 weeks now, some proper long flight feathers too, but in addition now he seems to be itching a lot, and a little...
  3. Yawning, and scratching

    Your Cockatiels Health
    Our new cockatiel keeps opening her mouth wide and bobbing her head, any ideas why this could be? She also appears to be moulting and is scratching a bit and has a bald patch on top of her head, is this anything to worry about? Thank You!
  4. Repeated deck dropping, poor moult

    Your Cockatiels Health
    My male pearl/pied 'tiel, Solar, has recently turn 1 year and started his first moult not long back. But not properly. He's not done yet but he has given me his decks twice now and by the looks of it he'll drop another pair. All four of these feathers have dropped before reaching their full...

  7. What do you do with the feathers?

    Chit Chat
    Gertie has just had her first moult with us, and so I saved up all the lovely feathers. So far, I've made a couple of pairs of earrings, but there are still loads left! What do you guys do with yours? :) x
  8. What age does moulting start?

    Your Cockatiels Health
    I read about moulting on Cockatiel Cottages website and it says that cockatiels have their first moult when theyre around 6-12 months old. Can it happen earlier than this? Or do cockatiels just lose feathers in warmer weather? Our babies are only about 2 and a half months old but theyve started...
