    Bird Tricks?

    Hey! I have an eight month female cockatiel who so far only knows two tricks. She knows how to hang upside on my finger, and to fly to my shoulder when I whistle to her.

    Male or Female?

    Hi I recently purchased a new cockatiel. It's a cinnamon pearly pied, or what the breeder told me it was. It's wing were trimmed unevenly. I have no idea what sex it is and I am also unsure of my other cockatiel which is a lutino, I believe.
