We purchased our cockatiel Echo a little over a year ago. She's wonderful in every way(pretty sure that she is in fact a SHE afterall, thanks for your help here on that one) After much thought about Echo and her maybe wanting some bird company we decided to add one more to our family and purchased another hand raised baby. The pet store told us that she was a girl, figured a girl was best for Echo so that we did not have to worry about eggs and such. Since bringing Zoey home they seem to get along pretty well, not loving each other yet but definately tolerating it. Echo is still just as cuddling with our family members which is nice to see. One problem....Zoey our little baby girl loves to wolf whistle, screech, sing, bop her head and tap her beak repeatedly on the cage, perch etc. I guess it's another waiting game, just entering the molt I am expecting some male appearing. Guessing we should have wait before naming her Zoey.
