    New bird, new worries

    This week I'm going to pick up a two month old pearl white faced Cockatiel, independent, an absolute cutie. I think it might be female but it's still too young for me to know and I'm probably not getting a DNA test anytime soon. Either way I'm going to name it Plato since my last bird was named...

    Unique housing situation, can’t make a decision!

    Hey everyone! I joined the forum today to get advice as to which bird will be my next.. I had a cockatiel (Chi) until January 29, 2016 that was truly the love of my life. She was the cuddliest cockatiel I have ever known - we did everything together. It was heartbreaking when she passed away...
