Hi! I'm getting my little boy pirate within the next couple of days, and although I've read a lot and researched a lot about cockatiels, what are some important things I need to know, or warnings or any useful information?
Congratulations on finally getting Pirate! There are lots of important things you need to know, good job on doing lots of research! Poop is a good indicator of your cockatiel's health. Monitoring your bird's poop could help you catch any illnesses before they get worse. Here is a good article on 'poopology'. You could also read this. Additionally, I have found a ton of useful information on almost everything on this amazing website. Good luck with Pirate and do share some pictures with us when you get him!
