Hi everyone i am new to this site and got my first cockateil around two weeks ago i think its a she because she is very quiet. I have chosen peekaboo as her name she was avery raised and isnt tame yet we are working on it but she is very slow to trust me and still moves to the back of her cage when i get too close although she does take millet from my hand i am usingmillet as her training food. i am looking forward to chatting with you all.

Welcome to the group! How old is your baby? We love pictures here too (hint hint). I have a 9 week old tiel and he was very quiet for the first week, getting noisier now though. Patience is the key to training. Sounds like you are doing fine though. You will find this group very helpful. I like the name too! :D

Peekaboo is a pretty girl that's for sure. She might not be fully tame but it seems you're making great progress. I can't get my new tiel to eat anything from my hand. Notta thing. Anyhoo, welcome to the board.
