Hi everyone! Nice to be here! I just got a baby today. We named him or her... Cookie. He's 3 months old. I purchased him from a lady in Chicago that owns a store and also breeds birds. I have to hand feed him 2 times a day. Once in the morning and once at night ( those were her instructions). Evidently he got picked on by another bird because he's missing three of his claws or nails. Even though he had this slight deformity I still wanted him. Will it affect him at all? Is he supposed to sit on a perch at three months? Everything has healed, but no nails. We also have two budgies. Is it Ok to house them together once quaratine is over? Do budgies and cockatiels get along? Well enough of My questions foe now. Again I'm so glad to be here!
