I am the first person to see Doody! Yay! :D

She is so beautiful....you are making me sooo jealous! :p
May I just ask, how much did you pay for her? Because I think some people here charge way to much for their hand reared cockatiels. :)

I paid £50, which really isn't that bad, I got her direct from the breeder. I asked around in various pet stores etc. and they ranged from £60 to £85 per bird, so I don't think that was bad at all.........I suppose now you are going to tell me you could have got me a hand reared all singing all dancing for a tenner. LOL!!! That's usually the way isn't it? ha ha ha

D O O B Y ! ! ! ! :D

I have no clue why I'm excited. :eek:
It might be all the gorgeousness getting to my head.
Or it could be the name . . . D O O B Y!!.

Yep it's the name. :p


She's gorgeous, absolutely beautiful.
All her photos are really amazing.

Also congrats because I had no clue you got a Tiel.

I too go with Aly Dooby is geting yellow around the face, but I'm not sure because I think some females get yellow also on their face.

Dooby is cute!

ummm, Females can have yellow on their face. Wait about 6 months and then look at the the under part of the tail. If it still has that pattern, then its female, if its lost that pattern and then its a male. :)

You'll probably figure out whether Dooby is in fact a he or a she sooner than 6 months - boys are chatterboxes, and Dooby will probably make that much obvious in a few weeks. ;)

Well either way, it really doesn't matter, I don't intend to breed. The name Dooby will do for a boy or a girl, although I have to admit, it will be nice to know. At the moment, all I know is she is just plain stupidly tame!! She's just wonderful.

Oh dear!! That sounds very ominous! LOL!! Am I going to need earplugs?:D
No, but a sense of humour helps. Bailee was singing all through my favourite tv show last night. LOL!! It's funny to hear, and not an unpleasant sound, but there's a time and place for everything!! :p

Hmmm, at the moment we have the occasional whistle. She'll whistle back to me when I whistle to her, but no singing.
Like Bea said, you'll be able to tell before the six months. Either way, DOOBY is ADORABLE!!! Mine does the normal whistle back to me as well- you'll know if you have a boy though. The reason I said I was leaning towards a boy is because all the yellow. You'll be able to tell soon enough.
