I have never registered with a cockatiel forum before but I have 2 rescue cockatiels, 6 budgies (4 of them rescues), 2 lovebird rescues and am currently foster 1 rescue budgie, 1 hamster and 1 hedgehog. Although I have had cockatiels for several years, am looking forward to seeing exclusively cockatiel posts. Might I also add I am an animal/bird advocate/rescue person as well as doing wildlife rescue/rehab for the last 15 years. Hello all!!!
