Hey guys I need some help I've got a female cockatiel she's called poppy and she's a white faced cinnamon pearl I've had hew about a month. She came with her boyfriend who is a normal grey and their previous owner says she thinks they are about 3 years old but she can't be sure as they got them from an old man who had to get rid. She says she doesn't know if they have ever had a clutch before but her boyfriend has a blue metal ring on his leg. This maybe able to help me identify his age but I haven't had a good look as I didn't want to stress them more than I had when I tried to catch them in a cluttered cage! So anyway let me get to he point the female is flightless! She is missing the flight feathers on her right wing and is able to get up to the perches but can't actually fly. I need to catch her and have a good look at her wing to see if there is sign of damage I suspect she damaged when havin it clipped when younger or maybe mutilated as a chick but I can't be sure. I was hoping to breed her as she is absolutely stunning! Do any of you know if there is a chance it's a defect from breeding? Or would she be fine for breeding? And do you think there is even a chance of her actually breeding? Her mate doesn't spend much time with her when she's on the floor he is with her when she feeds or when she manages to get up to the perches. I'm thinking I will have to adapt best boxes with easy access for her perhaps branches going from the floor to the entrance hole? Has anyone had any experience with flightless parents? Thank you in advanced guys!
