    Training and Bonding
    hi, me and my cockatiel are going to be moving to a city with my boyfriend, who she knows but hasn't fully bonded with yet.

    Hello, Talk Cockatiels! Have any of you ever lived with roommates, with your birds? I am moving to the California Bay Area and getting a new job. My pay will be lower and the rent will be higher. So I'm thinking about roommates. However, in the past, I have had bad experiences with...

  7. Noise Issue

    Training and Bonding
    Hey all. I'm a first time cockatiel owner, and I've had my cockatiel, Nila, for 3 months now. She's an amazing bird, decently quiet, whistles some, and plays nicely. She's well-trained, very good with people. Just three days ago she developed this loud chirping call whenever someone leaves the...
