I am sad and excited. The young male cockatiel I was going to get in a few weeks has been sick and his owner thinks he's not going to live so she not gonna give him away.:( But on the other side of this craziness I get to go to Tango's flock tomarrow and see all of her birds! I'm really excited , she said she has ALL kinds of cockatiels right now which is great. I am probably not even gonna get any sleep tonight from how excited I am! Is there anything I should know before I go see all of these birds ??:):p

Well it depends on if they have one that looks like it doesn't want to eat me (a good attitude) ,but since I don't have a cage right now I'll probably put a deposit on one.:D

You must be excited :D I would see if you could hold some of the babies to see how they react to you. Also when you get home you should change your clothes and wash up before seeing your birds. Iam sure her birds are very healthy but you mays well just to be safe. oh and bring a camera so you can take photos especially of the one you may choose :p good luck

Gahh. I think I have bad luck or something.....Today the aviary I was suppoed to go to was empty there was no people there, so I guess they bailed on their appointment. UHHH!
BUTTTTTT!!!!!
On the plus side I called my teacher to see if she knew anyone else and she did! It's sooo great because she lives like 10 minutes away from me and she has a breeding female right now and she told me I could pick which male could go with her! Her breeding female is a :love:Whiteface Cinnamon Pearl:love:,I practically screamed they are gorgeous birds! She said I have firt pick of anything she hatches and she said she would keep about 5 five so I have 3 or 4 mutations to choose from.:love::love::love::love::love::love::love: She has been breeding ONLY cockatiel for 35 years and she told me she would keep me posted on the eggs and the mom and dad. I like it because she is a smaller breeding aviary and she told me since I would be interacting with like 1-2 week old babies she would teach me to handfeed.:D:D So now I have some extra time to save up some money for a BIG cage and s/he will be hand-reared half way by me! She expects that I should have a birdy by mid-March my B-day March 16.. So s/he can be my birthday birdie!
