    Plucking Cockatiel

    Hey guys, I have a 2 1/2 year old female cockatiel who started plucking around 5 months ago. She only plucks under her wings, above the tail feathers, and in the lower half of her chest. I’ve done quite a lot of research about this and wanted to see if there is something you guys could...

    [SOLVED] Feather plucking or molting???

    Hello all my around 2 year old cockatiel has I believe just started feather plucking. He mostly seems to pull out down feathers so maybe could be molting but I have a more likely theory. He recently got into a pretty big accident and really hurt himself by flying into a wall. I took him to the...

    Hello, I'm getting my 2nd cockatiel tomorrow. I already have one at home (for a year- without any contact with other birds) The new one has been checked at our local vet and they said he's completely healthy.

I constantly have to duck out of the room so she doesn't fly on me or fly out. I've broken a ceiling fan from stopping it because my cockatiel kept trying to fly onto...

    Very Sharp Nails

    My young cockatiel has very sharp nails even if we trim the tips every couple weeks. I have clipped the quick a couple times and it is very traumatic. I do have a few rough perches in her cage but they don’t seem to help. She is around 6 months old. Any ideas?
