Yes...Tiki is kinda the odd man out. He looks nothing like his other three clutch mates. Actually I wish SOMEONE with a lot more experience with different mutations could tell me how he (Tiki ) came to be. Kiwi, the dad was a pearl when he was young but now looks like a regular normal grey! Woody, the mother is a simple pied with dark grey and yellow feathers. As many of you have probably noticed, Peanut looks like a miniature version of his mother Woody!
pretty sure he likes her lol--humans, birds...same look ha!

Are you guys REALLY that shy or just don't have anything to say? Heck, if nothing else, post about YOUR bird(s.) I can report that we are done to 13 tiels now. We sold one of the younger females from the last clutch yesterday. Even though we were in the early stages of teaching her to step up, this girl was tickled to death with this little pied female.

I read this thread pretty much daily, but never seem to have much time for posting. Reading the posts on here is what I do when I have a moment to breathe. I don’t always have enough time to contribute to discussions but I LOVE hearing about all your birds and seeing the photos. You have a very beautiful flock!

Re: Texas Tiels Thread.

People like it, we just are in crazy-life-mode a lot and don't always comment. The threads that tend to get a lot of replies are those with life-of-death situations (just because at that point, it's like people feel compelled to help, even if they are busy--because it could save a life) but you are appreciated!

Re: Texas Tiels Thread.

The FIRST photo on the post is for Lumanuka. It was taken in a bird store last year ( where we got Buzz ) and was the VERY first time I had seen a Cockatoo up close and personal....let alone hold one! This female was a rescue and was about 20 years old. Her name was Helen and in MUCH better care from the owner of the bird store.

The second photo shows Matilda ( conked out ) and Tiki the dark male. All three of the youngsters we kept from the last clutch are doing well. They all step up well and Peanut is turning into another Buzz! He's a very active little guy and won't wait till it's his turn to be fed. He'll follow me around when I'm gathering food and water bowels and try his best to eat the left overs from others!

The last photo is actually about a year old but a favorite! It's PROOF that birds know what a photobomb is!!! That's Kiwi hogging the camera!

Re: Texas Tiels Thread.

Thanx for the pic Tex, and love your T-shirt. No doubts at all about where your real birdie loyalties lie! And Kiwi's a very cute little photo-bomber for sure!

They posted it on facebook and today everybody and there dog in Erath county called and texted me wanting to know if I had lost a bird!!! Guess I'm well known in these here parts!
