My New Cockatiel!

1070 Views 4 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  littletiel

I've recently become the proud owner of a cockatiel and I'm loving it! I still don't know the gender nor age, so would be great if you all could help figure it out based on the pictures.

It recently starting getting on my finger whenever I show it food, but otherwise it pecks at my fingers. I am assuming it just requires more time before it is completely comfortable and stops packing?

Lovely little girl you have there. Hold a spray of millet in your fingers, and use the words, "Step-up" each time. She will soon learn to "step-up" to your hand.
