    Idea for Toys/Play Area. Would this Work?

    I would love to spoil my cockatiel, whenever I get the money to allow me to do so. I've spent some time thinking about what I would want to do, and I want to get some opinions to see if it's a good idea, would be safe, etc. I'm wanting to convert a cat tree into a playground for my tiel. I...

    What to do if I'm not a "bird person"?

    So I made this as a sort of throw away account to ask this question. I'm somewhat scared of asking this, but I feel like I need to ask it... Sorry it's long, but I figured context would be good. I have a cockatiel. I've had him for about a year. He was young when I got him, and he was not from...

    How to get my tiel to eat vegies.

    Hey guys! So, i posted about 2 weeks ago, I got a fairly young, 5months old cockatiel. He started to take the millet from my hand, and not panicking anymore, which is nice. Thing is, he only eats the millet from his seed mix, not even the sunflower seeds. I tried many times, many different...

    New tiel owner! Some questions!

    Hey guys! So, yesterday I brought home my first Cockatiel from a breeder. He was pretty scared yesterday, but today he started pacing up and town the bottom of the cage and scream. Why is that? Calling for the old friends? Or just bored? He has a few toys in, he doesn't interact with them...

    Video Silly Cockatiel

    My cockatiel likes to transport his foods from the food bowl to a perch, then he eats his foods. I wonder what's going on in his mind. :roflmao: Meanwhile, I was like you're wasting the foods by dropping them on the way!! :eek:

    Adding a bird to the family?

    I have a female cockatiel that I've had since she was a few months old. She recently turned 13. Having a bird for so long, I obviously have a very special bond with her. However my job makes it so I'm gone most of the day five days a week and I know thats not the best for her emotional health...

    Getting another bird.

    Hi, I’ve been thinking about getting a lovebird(not for a few months as I want to know a lot more about them) but I have a 4 year old female cockatiel she’s very clingy to me and has always been the only bird in the house. They wouldn’t be housed in the same cage but would be in the same room...

    Male or female

    Hi all, I am attaching pics of my birdie's tail feathers. Its white feathers are clear but its grey feathers have a few yellow specks on it. Any idea about its gender? My bird is a fawn pied cockatiel.

    Proper weight?

    There’s probably nothing wrong at all, but I’m a little concerned about my cockatiel, Pepper, because I can feel his keel bone a bit. I just weighed him and he weighs 120 grams, which is pretty normal. He’s got his general wellness check soon, but I’m a little worried because I heard you...
