  1. Where to go from here?

    Training and Bonding
    Hey all, I got rescued a cockatiel from a neglectful family about a month ago, and have started to try and tame her! She's gone a long way, and will usually step up for millet!

  7. Rescuing 5 cockatiels. Help!

    Cockatiel Talk
    Hi guys. I would like some advice. I'm an owner of a cockatiel that we rescued one year ago. I took him to an avian vet and switch him to a pellet diet. He's so healthy and big. Today my brother told me about his friend abandoning 5 cockatiels outside her house so we had to do the right thing...
