  1. Should I return my cockatiel's wife?

    Cockatiel Talk
    I was planning of getting my lovely 1-year-old male cockatiel a wife because he feels upset when the family goes out without him (we take him with us most of the time but sometimes it's just not possible). So yesterday I found this really sweet wifey (said to be 7 months old) for him and decided...

  4. Advice??? Adding a tamed cockatiel to an untamed flock

    Cockatiel Talk
    I have 2 untamed cockatiels I adopted a little over a month ago. They were hand-fed, but not much attention was paid to them after that. It's been a slow process and I can tell some progress, but I was wondering how adding a 3rd, younger, very tame cockatiel to the mix would affect things? The...

    I was recently gifted a lovely 17 (ish) year old tiel from a friend.

    Cockatiel Talk
    At long last I've finally brought home my 2nd cockatiel yesterday :) I found her on Gumtree, her previous owner has sadly been diagnosed with a terminal illness and so her mother was tasked with rehoming her cockatiel.
