    Hi, so I have a cockatiel who is around 14 years old. His name is Stitch. My mother bought him for my sister when I was around 7 and she was nine. Unfortunately, she didn't do much research in how to care for a bird properly and the time and effort that should go into it. Growing up I felt...

    linnies and other birds

    So i’m thinking now of getting a Linnie! I’ve always wanted one but choose a quaker over them in the end. I currently have 2 cockatiels, 1 indian ringneck and a green cheek conure. Would they be alright together? They wouldn’t live in the same cages of course. But can they live with cockatiels...
