I was wondering if we can share experiences on what to expect when our tiels get older. Spike is having tantrums once in a while and he gets nippy too. So if anyone with an older tiel or even just a baby tiel would like to post their observations that would be great :D

The boys usually go through hormonal phases where they're little devils. :p For some it passes, and others keep their bratty behaviours. I've also found that Bailee doesn't sing so much just for the sake of singing. He only sings for a purpose (e.g. flirting with Cookie).

Well...I just got Ziggy boy a month ago so I don't have experience with boys but I can tell you about a mature female..When broody they will scream for no reason, do "the dance" with toys or...pretty much anything, they are constantly trying to find a dark nest spot...it can get pretty annoying...

Oh please let it pass, oh please let it pass, please don't let this hormonal behaviour be the normal pattern for Dooby.......*gets off knees*

Naughty, nippy, nice, nasty......in equal measures. That just about sums up Dooby at the moment.

LOL!!! :p I was the same with Bailee. I'm sure it will pass for Dooby too.

Bailee has his moments, but he's cuddly most of the time. Bailee also sits himself on my keyboard and bites if i try to use it. :p

Ziggy's been pretty sweet and quiet- he's always chattering just not loud. He has his moments where he like to scream but they only last a few seconds at times. From what I've been reading I should be expecting a turn for the "worse" soon...?
