...about the tiels. It was on answer machine, so I left a message saying that I was interested in a tiel, they did say call evenings, I called about 6pm. Hopefully I will get a call back soon!
from what I have read as I don't have alot of experience in this area, parent raised cockatiels can be just as nice as long as them have been handled, if she has to chase the birds around or wear gloves to get it out you might want to look elsewhere I found this article that gives some information.I got a call back a couple of hours, she was very nice, but told me she had stopped breeding for this year, and would start again at Easter or around that time. To be honest, I can't really wait that long!!
I have also been e-mailing a lady who lives in the same town as me and she has some parent reared cockatiels for sale for £10 in an aviary, she says that because they are young they will easily grow to be as tame as a hand reared one, is this true?
I am really hoping one comes along soon for you RosieIt's a shame....but I'm still on the look out for any tiel adverts!!
I would preferably like to get him/her near the October half term which is in a couple of weeks so I can spend all day with him/her and watch how it settles in and stuff like that..
Also, I phoned up the pet shop - no tiels in stock.
You have probably already done this but have you tried looking on the net for breeders in your area.. I found this site if you haven't seen it yet you type in what your looking for and your regionThanks Laura
I am also going to buy a weekly paper called 'Adtrader' where people advertise anything they want, including pets/pet supplies. Comes out every Wednesday so thats tomorrow, I shall be buying it!! Ya never know what you could in there **hand reared cockatiels perhaps!!**
