I am new here and I have a question. I have a cockatiel that is going through her hormonal stage and am wondering how long it usually takes. She has been going through it for a few months. She is 18 yrs. old. Thank-you!
I wouldn't think a hormonal stage would last that long for an older bird but sometimes they surprise you. How is she acting? Cranky and not interested in normal things like she did? I ask this because due to her age, you might want to consider a vet visit if it keeps up. There may be some other issues.
She is acting like she wants to have a baby, Cranky, goes to the bottom of the cage. She has a mate and wants her down there too. Tears up anything she can find into little pieces. Real lovey with her mate.
