Hello, I'm new to this site and still having a look around to see how things work. I have one cockatiel, Asa (he's the handsome guy in my profile pic), that is about 7 years old. I do my best with him, and usually when I have questions I browse online forums to see if anyone has a good solution, but I think it would be a good idea to make an account to be able to ask the community directly. I have one other bird, a lineolated parakeet, but they are housed separately and have individual out-of-cage flight and playtime.
Asa is my first tiel and I love him to bits. He's a nervous little guy but after years of working on his confidence and socialization, he is much more relaxed and inquisitive than he used to be. When we brought him home he would fall apart at the drop of a molted feather, and it took a lot of patience and love for him to trust. I hope he has a long happy life with my family.

Yes, Welcome to you and Asa and thanks for sharing your story with us. I know what you mean about a nervous bird! I have a female whiteface that was bought for us by my daughter. Sadly this poor bird was not only hand tamed but not hand fed either! Basically what we got was a wild cockatiel. She's been with us now for a little over a year and is still nervous to this day! You can get close and talk to her but forget touching at all. I'm not a cockatiel expert by any means but if you have any questions, I'll sure try to help.
