  1. Training and Bonding
    I had adopted my baby cockatiel yesterday, her name is Sugar. The first day I let her be. Today I have taught her to eat millet out of my hand, but she takes it very aggressively. I have also taught her to step-up but she is uncomfortable with my hand being below her without a treat distracting...

    Hello. I recently got a cockatiel (6 days ago) and I have noticed that he constantly tilts his head. I know birds usually do this to look at the ceiling or floor. But he is doing it all the time and I’m starting to become a little bit concerned, I’m just wondering if maybe there is a reason for...

    I already have a cockatiel, but I want another bird. I know cockatiels don’t get along with birds of different sizes, but my cockatiel is a show cockatiel, so she’s a few inches bigger than normal cockatiels. My previous cockatiel was a little smaller than most, but he was about 3/4 the size of...

    Hello, new cockatiel owner! I have a 4 month old lutino named Orion and right now, he hates having his feet touched. Will accept head scratches but otherwise will get defensive if I try to make him step up. He doesn't have interest exploring outside the cage and I CAN take him out but that's...

    Hello. Two weeks ago I got my cockatiel that I believe is a boy. I will have DNA gender test done next week. There are no markings on the underside of his tail feathers. He is about two years old according to the avian veterinarian. He is a Pied Cockatiel. Charlie is my first cockatiel and first...

    Hi everyone, So nice to be here, I'm using a forum for the first time in my life! But I really felt I need some support and advice from people who own a parrot and have experience with cockatiels. I'd really appreciate your help. I got a cockatiel as a present 10 days ago. It's a girl! and...

    never mind, I found a post that helps. I don’t think there’s a way to delete my entire post so I just decided to edit it.

    Heyy so I’m kind of new to owning birds, but I’ve done my research before getting my two cockatiels. They came as a pair at 6 months old (although I feel that the female might be little older) and it’s been about 4 months since I got them. Recently they’ve been acting a little strange and...

    Hi everyone. We just got a cockatiel yesterday evening. I’m just wondering if you have tips on what to do and what not to do as this is our first bird. I’ve read in a lot of places not to let the out of the cage for the first few days however Sunny seems to be getting super antsy and is pacing...

    :pied: I have had my cockatiel for a while now and have just found out that it is a female! However, I do not see it laying any eggs so that is a little concerning since my cockatiel was found I do not know if she is at the right age for it or if this is a big deal or not. I also want to get my...

    I had found my cockatiel on the streets a couple of months ago. I put my hand down and it hopped onto it so I decided to take him home and raise it. My mom and I have been caring for him for a couple of months now and we really are beginners at this. We never thought we would be getting a...

    Hey! I'm totally new to these forums, but I've just a couple hours ago gotten a new cockatiel. While viewing them at the breeders, their feathers wear flat, they weren't bobbing when they breathed, and they were fairly active. Now that they're at home they're puffed up and bobbing when...

    Hello all! I got my new baby tiel :pied: Starly three days ago. She started off normal for her settling in period (typical anxious, quiet, not moving much..) but then a couple hours into her first day, she went buck wild. She is clearly agitated, not sure if she just wants to escape, or is...

    (This is mostly a rant/vent) Hi, so I finally got to bring Apollo home today, yay! He's around 3.5 months old right now. I've done all the research in the world but I'm still so nervous about him being here. He's in his cage right now and I can see him and he's constantly shaking. I read up and...

    I have had Bird :pearl: for about 4 years now and I decided to get a second tiel. We picked up Luna :pied: about 2 weeks ago and the birds seem to be getting along. I was wondering though if anyone has any good resources on cockatiel interactions with one another. My spesific question right now...

    Hello my fellow tielers'. So Sunday was the special day I picked up my 10 week old, pearl-pied girly :) (At least we think she's a girl as she doesn't sing much at all and is a very cuddly girl that loves her head scritches!) I thought you'll like to see some pictures of her as she is a very...

    Hello all! I'm a first time bird housemate and I've been using this site for reference a lot! (especially since he wasn't hand fed). This is Ludwing! Named after the good ol' Ludwig Van. He's a very angsty birb, much like Beethoven. He likes sitting on my music stand, imitating passing...

    This is one of my new additions Yoda. He is 16 years old. Poor thing was never tamed or let out of his cage. I also adopted his cage mates at the shelter. Two one year old tiels we names Sassafras because he is a sassy stinker who is not tame and totally hyper and Cricket who makes cricket...
