New to the forum! love my cockatiel -:>

Hi everyone! I am very excited about this forum and hope to meet lots of other bird lovers! In our house it is almost a zoo! Not only do we have 3 parrots, but we also have a dog, chickens (outside of course), and we will be getting kittens soon as well! Our birds are Sammy, our 8 year-old cockatiel who is very social and friendly, Lucy, our 7-year old lesser sulfur crested cockatoo, and our newest addition, Cricket, the hyper-active climbing, swinging parakeet! -sammybird

Re: New to the forum! love my cockatiel -:>

lucy is a third-hand bird. the first home she was in abused her and locked her up in a closet for THREE YEARS!!! because they thought she was "loud". the only interaction with humans was food and water changes(not often) and she plucked ALL her feathers out and when she was finally given up and rehabbed her crest was the only part that didn't grow back. it is sad because the crest is one of the most beautiful things about a cockatoo(next to their personality of course). which is one of the reasons why when we adopted her the man said "are you sure you want her she isn't the most beautiful bird" we replied we aren't trying to win a beauty contest bud. and she has been with us since! and it has been awesome even as i'm typing she is oo-aaing like a monkey!

My LSC Too used to pluck as she was abused at one point too. I think I'm her 3rd owner but I'm not sure. She's twenty something years old and she's been with us for over 8 years. She still barber her feathers a bit especially her crown.
