I fell in love with my boyfriend's mother's bird and decided I wanted to get one of my own. After research, I found the perfect little birdie baby and waited until he was weaned. I visited him every day until he could come home.. Awards

Hi! My name is Hermes

I am a Cockatiel from Valparaiso, IN.

birdie birdie

8 years old   M


dehydrated corn and millet

heads and shoulders

I chase the kitties away when they get on my mom's lap. I am definitely a green eyed monster.

They talk to me and whistle at me. My dad even got me to say birdie birdie. The best part is when they're eating yummy people food, they'll give me pieces and let me nibble.

I love food, but I'll only eat it after watching my mom or dad take a bite..

I'm the mighty monster..

I chase away my mommie's kitties too. They are afraid of me. If I come into the room they run away. They don't like how I scream either. I am the boss. I am so proud to know they know it too. Mommie says I toss my head and act stuck up when I get the cats to run.

Come visit me, Goldie.

  Hello from Lucky
Hi Hermes! I was glad to hear back from you. I don't really have to work at keeping the dog in line. She's a border collie, so she's really docile. Actually, she's protective of me. But sometimes I get freaked out when she gets too close- like when she sticks her nose in my face and stares at me- so I hiss or screech. Usually hissing does the trick. Mom says the dog just wants to be friends with me, but I prefer that my friends do not slobber on me. But all in all, the dog is okay. As long as I get more attention than she does. Which actually isn't working out the way I thought it would. . . I need to put more effort into training my humans. *Sigh* Take care Hermes.

  Hey there
Yeah, I'm finishing my first molt too. My head got a little whiter, but I still look the same really. I like Big Un, but she won't even look at me! - Rocket

Come visit me, Big Un, Madam Coconut, Rocket, Little Bird, Peanut, Percy, Shredder & Ziggy (RIP).

  Welcome, Hermes :-)
We just had to tell you we think you're a cute cockatiel!! We hope that we can be friends with you! It sounds like you did some good research!! Our mom and dad weren't that smart when picking my brother PGT (they got him from a big pet store as a parent fed baby...yikes he was mean!) but after having him they DID do some research and found me! The good news is PGT is becoming quite a good bird, hehe he must have been watching me. We can't wait to hear more about you, and see more pictures of your cute face!

a vote for you, from Little Wing and PGT

Come visit me, Little Wing & P.G.T. Beauregard.

  Hi Hermes!
Welcome Hermes! You are so cute! I'm a 7- year old tiel. I thought I was the mighty monster, but I'll settle for Screechzilla. I get jealous of the dog when she gets attention, but I screech instead of chase- or else just pout. The dog gets jealous of me, too, and she'll just sit there and whine until she gets some attention. I think I bark louder than she does! I like table scraps too, and I beg right along with the dog. Fly by and visit anytime. Here's a vote for a sweet baby tiel.
