    Your Cockatiels Health

    Your Cockatiels Health
    I've posted about my tiel Bella here before with regards to what the vets and I agreed was a crop infection. She took her medication and we've even taken her back a second time just to be sure that she really is totally fine. The vet said that he couldn't seem to find anything wrong with her and...

    Your Cockatiels Health
    So a bit of history, one of my Cockatiels Smokey was a rescue and came from a home where his owners smoked heavily (his cage was stained yellow) and he has had always had breathing issues since I had him. It used to just be that he couldn't fly far without getting out of breath, but over the...

    Your Cockatiels Health
    Hi all - I have a ten yr old sickly cockatiel. Even though it is sad to say, I am amazed he is still alive. For 5 years, we have visited countless vets with no success. He is a severe plucker (mostly around the back) and has ripped out his tail. He now chews some of his skin until it actually...

    My cockatiel tiki hasn't been looking his best these last couple of days. He isn't as lively as usual, he doesn't sing as much, he seems to be shivering every now and then and once in a while I'll catch him sitting on the floor of his cage which is unusual for him because he loves his top perch...
