Re: [HELP!] School Cockatiels are Incredibly Aggressive

for a vet they sound like an absolute moron to put things bluntly. Maybe, juuuuust maybe the cockatiels are trying to defend their young being taken away? But nah I guess that thought never occurred to the vet there.

As said above, next batch of eggs boil them and put them back after cooling down (do one at a time) and let them get it out of their system. Otherwise soon that female could get egg-bound and die.

As for the balding on the male that sounds like the female has got so stressed she's begun plucking him, or like Christa said he could be scraping his head on the roof of the enclosure if he is having night frights which is possible considering their stress levels
