What a cute tiel :) the perches do look at bit mouldy. Are they natural wood with the bark still on? If not they are a bit dirty. Anyway I can't wait for more photos when you get your new babies :)

So cute!

Umm..a little off topic..why do the perches look moldy?
we live in the Byron shire in Australia... we have a wet season or two every year... we also get regular flooding every year or so...

the 'mould' on the perches are in fact, black mould stains, because it dosent matter what you scrub with, you will never get the stain of black mould out...

Is that mould bad for them? I would change them often too, Nice cockatiel though
Any mold is bad for them. The spores go in the air and cause respiratory problems and bacterial infections. It's not Debree's fault though- I'm sure once she gets them home they'll be in a clean enviroment.

it is not mould... it is a stain, from it getting mouldy a year an a half ago when we had a huge flood.... it has been cleaned, but, like any stain it cannot be removed unless you sand down the perch... alot...
the stain cannot hurt them, its like saying a red wine stain on the carpet is bad for them cos its alcohol and alcohol is bad for birds....
