Luna, Jan 24th 2019

Hello everyone!
It's finally happening. I'm finally getting my first tiel. Her name is Luna. My husband liked the name so much we decided we're keeping it.

I've been researching and preparing for the last few months! Throwing out all my old teflon, buying new ceramic/stainless steel no PTFE PFOA pots pans & heaters (I just prefer ceramic for some reason), rearranging our room for space, reading books and researching online, and lots of lots of searching.
It was really hard to find an appropriate bird at the right time! There were a few tiels I was looking at but they weren't the right fit or they came before I was fully prepared.

I finally found one though and I went to visit Luna yesterday. I paid the deposit for her and I'm just waiting for the owner to finish up the last few things he has to do.

She was kept in a big cage with two other tiels, however she was hand raised and had completely no interest in them. They all were very friendly and at the very least, tolerated each other. He was very passionate about birds but thigns changed drastically in his life and he no longer had the time for them like he used to. So he decided to find them new homes.

She looks healthy and happy. Eyes clear, nose clear, pretty feathers. She was so inquisitive and curious and climbed right up on me inspecting my jacket and my glasses. She stepped up right away even if she was feeling a little nervous.

I'm excited! Also nervous. I haven't had a bird in a hot minute and I hope to do best by her. I'll definitely be keeping regular updates once she comes to live at my house.

Congratulations! But I think I have to correct one thing. You will find that you end up living in her house! I thought I owned my property until Syd moved in.

I imagine that'll prove to be true! With how much my husband and I dote on animals, she's definitely going to be queen of the roost.

My, she's quite the beauty. Congrats on getting your first 'tiel!

And just like T00tsyd said, she's going to own the house when she moves in

Thank you so much!
I really like all morphs of tiels, cause they're just so cute, but whiteface has been a particular favorite of mine!

When I saw her the weekend after we rearranged the whole room, I couldn't believe my eyes. It seemed too good to be true.

I totally don't mind that lol! In some way, she already does. We're been doing lots of cable management and tiel proofing the house. She chewed on my glasses chain yesterday a bit. I didn't want her to swallow any bits of metal by accident so I've removed the chain from my glasses and I'm going to find an alternative.

Re: Luna, Jan 24th 2019

Same here: I am simply blown away by those feather patterns!
Never knew they got that gorgeous!


If she is only half as beautifull on the inside as the ouside looks... you really got a smashing bird!
