This is Toby. I adopted him about 2 weeks ago. I got him from a breeder who couldn't sell him because the breeder claims he had an injured wing due to some flight feathers being pulled out by another bird during a fight. Ive been careful to make sure the birb is in a good, quiet area of the home. He was startled on day 2 and had some bleeding because he thrashed into the cage wall and his wound must have opened up.
This would be my first cockatiel ever but I have 4 budgies, all from pet store, and all tamed by myself. I wanted to fulfill my life long dream of owning a cockatiel and that's when I found Toby. I wanted a young birb who was hand fed so it'd be easier to tame (again, my first cockatiel).
I was informed by the breeder that Toby is 4 months old and hand fed. Having never owned cockatiels before, I had no idea. After doing some research, I've started to doubt that he is 4 months old... he's also TERRIFIED of hands, even moreso than any of my budgies when they were purchased wild
from the pet store.
Any insight on his age would be fantastic.
Thank you so much 💓 sorry for rambling.
he's also got this bald spot on the back of his head and I was wondering if it'd grow in?? The breeder says it should after his first full molt and im not sure when that is supposed to happen. 🙈
