    I have a 14 year old female cockatiel named Henrietta who has been a chronic egg layer her whole life.

    Possible pied male?

    Hello, I was reading a post on this page saying that it is possible to sex young cockatiels who are pied due to their cheeks. I have attached a few pictures, there seem to be yellow streaks going through the cheeks, so therefore, can it be determined that this is a male? The breeder (Marc...

    Help! We've got eggs!

    Oh dear!! We had thought Popsicle was too young to lay eggs, and weren't expecting any since she and our male (Habibi) have never figured out the whole mating thing. But here we are! I've found two eggs, both in separate places, and both smashed. The one seemed to have caved in on itself...

    When does a cockatiel mature?

    I have a female cockatiel, she is eight months, which apparently would make her an "adult". She is my only cockatiel, and also hasn't laid eggs yet. Would she be considered "mature"? (I'm not planning any breeding or anything, and I know that they have to be around 11 months for that). I just...

Does this mean she is trying to mate with me? The breeder DNA sex'd her female, but I'm not convinced she isnt a...

    This is my Cockatiel, Sugar. She is young and I am currently attempting to tame her, but there has been difficulty. I've heard it can take some time to tame/train, weeks/months. Does anyone have some suggestions on hand taming a female?
