My cockatiel nearly passed away. Here’s how she survived heavy metal poisoning.

Re: 5-6 without interaction

I agree with the above! But 5-6 days of no human interaction shouldn't change anything even if you can't video call him. I was very worried to leave my birds alone when I went to New York at the...

Re: Worried sick to leave him

Oh I was also so worried the first time I went on holiday and left my babies behind, so I really understand. Berry, my 'tiel, is incredibly attached to me, and I was most worried about her. I thought...

Re: So we decided to get a cockatiel!

I hope things improve with your baby! I thought I’d just reply with reference to your question about weight. Berry, my 2 year old tiel, was 4 months old when I brought her home. She was about 78g at...

Re: Budgies & Cockatiels together

I’m a bit late to this! I have two budgies and one cockatiel who all live happily together in one large cage. Initially, I kept them separate, but Berry (my female ‘tiel) kept flying into the...

Berry is 2 this month. I have no idea the day that she hatched, only that it was sometime in June 2017. I can’t believe how much she has grown since I brought her home in October 2017!

Re: To Clip or... To Clip... that is the question

Can you make your house more budgie safe? I think that is the first step, and that will ensure that the little ones can fly safely if you choose not to clip.
