Hi Daisy's Mom,

So very sorry for your loss. I've lost 3 Cockatiels over the years and it never gets any easier. My first Cockatiel was pure white with dark eyes and her name was Taylor. She was such a joy from day one. The day I picked her up from the Breeder she jumped on my finger and we bonded immediately. I put her on her play gym the first day and she loved it. She always wanted to be with me. The day she died was horrible. I was getting ready to go out for the day and of course let her out as I always did. Somehow she flew out of her cage (that was hanging from the ceiling as we had 2 cats) and the way she landed on the carpet, she actually broke her neck! OMG it was one of the most difficult days of my life! Needless to say I didn't go out that day. Sydney was my 2nd white one but not quite as friendly. Although, after months of having her she became sweet. She only lived about 3 yrs. when she became egg bound. She had one egg and the next day didn't seem right. I was taken another bird to the vets that day but decided I would take her instead after work. When I arrived home, she had already passed. My 3rd Cockatiel (after yrs. saying no more) was a White Face little male named Keaton. He was smart and said many words and phrases and whistles. Only had him about 4 maybe 5 yrs. and he either had a stroke or a bad fall from his cage. When I took him to the Vet after knowing something wasn't right, he kept him for the day, gave him a shot, something was going on with his liver and his blood. The Vet said I could pick him up after work and keep him in a smaller cage (which I had) but he never made it. I picked him up and like all the ones before him, I buried him in the back yard. Again, after many years I now have Apache who is a White Face little Male. He says a few words and whistles tunes like We're Off To See The Wizard, The Andy Griffith Show, The Wolf Call, Rinse So White, etc. Hopefully, I will have him much longer.

You have two beautiful other Birds. Enjoy them as I'm sure you do.
