Cookie The 'Tiel!

Cookie, a white faced 'tiel born somewhere around 21st December 2018 and came to his/her new home on 11th January 2019.

Here's his/her story where you'll see videos and pictures of Cookie among other things.

The stories may either be in Cookie's or my POV (Point of view) and we hope you all will enjoy Cookie's story.

Re: Cookie The 'Tiel!

Cookie saw a chick (Bak-Bak) eat for the first time yesterday. S/he was very curious to what Bak-Bak was and even took some of Bak-Bak's food.


Here's a picture and a video of the meeting





Also Cookie has asked me to show you all his/her amazing singing. Here it is!

Re: Cookie The 'Tiel!

Cookie is absolutely adorable He seems to be fascinated by the chicken!
Judging by the whistling and heart wings display, Cookie is most likely a male.

Ah yes s/he was certainly interested in her XD.

I was also thinking Cookie is a male because of his/her vocalness(?) but we'll see

Re: Cookie The 'Tiel!

Yeah, I think it’s safe to assume that Cookie is a male purely because of those vocalizations. My female ’tiel Ducky doesn’t do anything close to that. She just does the normal cockatiel chirping but never any whistling. Cookie sang that song beautifully

Have you ever seen Cookie do beak banging, hopping, or strutting back and forth in front of a mirror? Those are other characteristic behaviors of male cockatiels, along with the classic “heart wings” which he did in the video.

I haven't seen him/her do any of the things you mentioned. When s/he's in front of a mirror s/he looks at me like "is this a new bird friend?".

Also the song s/he was trying to sing was 'if your happy and you know it"

Re: Cookie The 'Tiel!

Why don't we all have a look at this trio?





On the left we have Crippi, a 7 month old male lutino 'tiel hatched on 22 September 2018.

On the right, Toepee (Not his/her actual name just a we gave him/her to avoid calling him/her "the bird/ringneck"), a 6 week old IRN we were given by our uncle to wean and sell. Gender unknown and hatch date unknown. (approx hatch date: 1 April)

In the middle, Cookie! 4 months old, (probably) male white faced 'tiel hatched on 22 December 2018.

Also, Cookie was showing off his singing skill when this picture was taken
