  1. Your Cockatiels Health
    Greetings all! Excuse the lengthy post... For my 16th birthday many, many moons ago I bought a male cockatiel at a nearby pet store (I was young and uneducated about these things). I still remember the day he picked me, he was sitting in a tiny cage huddled up with many other tiels but...

    she's /screeching/ non stop! (If you guys differ screaming from screeching I mean) I know that this is a begging sort of thing to do (the static noise) Even when I pick her up and pet her and try to cuddle she's not too interested and would rather screech like something's wrong. I took her to...

    Hey guys! I posted about my new tiel Lufi and his habit of walking around nervously on the bottom of the cage and screeching only in the mornings. This seemed to stop and I was happy with the progress, but unfortunately, he started doing it again. What happens: I cover him partially for the...

    Hi everyone, I just joined this forum today, and I hope someone can help me with my bird. We have a male cockatiel named Smookey we have owned for about 8 years. While my memory of him when we first bought him is hazy, I do recall a more kind and friendly bird, one who would enjoy his head...

    My cockatiel Ziggy, will start this very annoying low screech noise what seems like FOREVER when anyone takes him out of his cage.. We try giving him food, water, treats, shiny things, whatever we can find to keep him interested. He won't stop for a long time. He is 5 months old. I wish I knew...
  6. Cockatiel Breeding
    I've had Chico one week. 10-14 weeks old. She sees me or Todd and flies to door. Flaps around the cage, basically goes nuts. Seems happiest when sitting at the nape of my neck, preening. However Chico makes this consistent low pitched screech that sort of reminds me of a purr. He nuzzles his...
  7. Training and Bonding
    Hi again... Well, a week ago I was worried if I could bond with my new tiel, Now I think that I might have overdone it a bit. I cannot leave the room without him screeching, and my husband sleeps in the afternoon so I need him quiet. Any ideas on how we can bond "normally" without all the...

    Timmy is 10 months old, and hand raised. We got him when he was 10 weeks old and he's very friendly. Lately we've been having a problem with him screaming. We were told by our breeder that if he is screaching and will not stop, we can put him in "time-out" in another room and cover him up. We...

    Hi, My cockatiel is now around 4 and a half months old. He is very loving, and seeks a lot of attention. Since a while he got this habit of making a continuous screeching noise. i have made a video of him doing that which you can see here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lu0VQbsdwOw He makes...

    Ever since we lost Rio on Thursday, Littlefoot has been flock-calling for Rio and obviously he isn't getting a response. They weren't bonded, or housed together, but for the last 4+ weeks they've been talking back and forth, but not loudly; just a call occasionally to remind each other they...

    Well, Screech seems to be calming down a bit now. He doesn't freak out quite so much when we aren't around, but he still does. We haven't been trying to make him stop, he just is. Could this be the end results of him molting? If I counted correctly, this month should be his first. He has been...
