    Looking for Natural toys

    How do I make my cockatiel want to spend time with me?

    So I got my tiel 5 days ago. She's generally really calm and doesn't get spooked by much, is seemingly hand-fed/hand-reared and doesn't have a problem with hands. She doesn't know how to step up but will climb onto my hand if I offer her millet. I talk to her often both when she's in the cage...

    Welp, not sure where I went wrong, but I definitely did something because he just won't go in his sleeping cage!! He is already used to the cage, he loves going outdoors in it, but when its to sleep or even just while I clean his main cage its a whole other story. I've also tried to get him...

    Video Help! My female cockatiel is making strange and concerning noises!

    As of this morning, Cicero started making these weird ''snotty/clicking'' and ''hiccup'' sounds. I have no clue as to what they are or if she's in any danger. I'm worried that maybe she's sick or has something caught in her throat. However, her poop is normal and she doesn't really have the...

    Trying out a sleeping cage, a few worries

    Good morning parronts! :) With hormonal season approaching, I decided to start making Charlie sleep in a smaller cage in a quiet & dark room. Covering his day cage wasn't really a possibility due to lots of noise and fabric being a hormonal trigger for him. He doesn't seem very happy with the...

    What's the right formula dosage for a 4-week cockatiel

    Ok, I've had Pearl, a four-week-old cockatiel, for a little over 36 hours, so I've gotten to feed her 5 times already. The breeder told me to feed her 4cc of formula at each feeding – 3 times a day – but she always seems unsatisfied after (she screeches like a dinosaur, which is very cute, but...

    Pictures Strange Growth(??) on toe

    I noticed this on Oreo’s toe, any ideas on what it could be? I don’t think it’s mites because it’s just this one isolated spot and there’s nothing like it on any of the other birds. Edit: Oreo also seems to always have very dry feet, I’m not sure if that could be related

    Constant screaming... Help?

    Good evening, parronts! Charlie has never been a screamer (he is 2 years old and a half, had him since he was 2 months old), but I am starting to realize he may have developed a bit of a bad habit... :o: Whenever we (my mom and/or myself) are not in the room, he will start screaming. If we...

    9-month old gender?

    I have been wondering if my beautiful cockatiel named Marshal is actually a girl? I thought ‘he’ was a boy since he is very vocal in the daytime and always does the contact calls. He is very energetic in daytime and plays and rips up everything! In the evening he is VERY calm. BUT he is...
