What happened??? I'm surprised anyone would sell you a unweaned baby cockatiel, it's illegal for breeders to do so usually. Do you have experience hand rearing?

It's a real shame there are breeders out there who will sell unweaned babies, it's irresponsible and there's no reason for it whatsoever. But now that you have the bub, i wish you all the best with him! :) Do you have some photos?

Wow I am sorry to hear that you got him yesterday and he died the next day:confused: very unusual was something wrong with him? was he sick? how old was Jay Jay was he weaned properly. I would take the new baby for a vet visit if Jay Jay came sick and died in one day there could be some illness going around at the breeders you got them from.

Your cockatiel wouldn't have died because he didn't eat the same food as the breeders he came from, I have 4 of them and none of mine got the same food as they had at the breeders it would take more then one day for him not eating and drinking for that to happen how old was Jay Jay? If he was really young it sounds like he wasn't weaned properly or something else was going on there if it was me I would be going back to the breeders to find out what happened.

I would go back to the breeder as well. You don't need to finish hand feeding a bird to have him bond with you. My friends bird was from a pet store and he is the tamest bird ever.

when i got stretch he was fully weaned and was and still is tame as can be while talking to my breeder she said no breeder should sell an unweaned baby bird as they can revert back and need more hand feeding i would take your new tiel to the vet just to be safe
