I had a wonderful cat named Angel, who was nearly 19 years old when she passed away in July 2006. I had talked about getting a bird at some point, and by November I was ready to. I did some research on what kind of bird I wanted, and then on breeders in the area. Few breeders had any had-fed cockatiels left, but then I found one. She had one baby left, and that baby was just waiting for a home. I met the baby and the breeder on a Friday morning, and knew that little baby 'tiel was coming home with me that day. The cage was already set up and waiting, and he made it his home in no time flat..

Hi! My name is Fido

I am a Cockatiel from Calgary, AE.

Updated February 2008: My nicknames are now as follows: El-Destructo, Brat, Goober, and "what do you think you're doing?"

8 years old   M

Cockatiel

Millet, of course. Anything on my human's plate, veggie crackers.

I love to hang out on my human's shoulder. She has short hair, but she wears glasses and those are fun to play with. Update: February 2k8: The kitchen windowsill when it's sunny - I can sit there and sing my heart out for HOURS!!!! Update April 18, 2k7: Now that I have full wings I like to take flights around the entire place, my landing zones are the mantle, the windowsill, or my mum's head. She's trying to break me of that. No luck yet.

Yellow - yellow dishes, yellow clothes, yellow food, yellow toys, almost anything yellow is a no-go.

She lets me run around the front room, and climb all over her until I tire out. When I fall asleep on her shoulder she won't move because she doesn't want to wake me.
I always have a big selection of toys, she does not want me to ever get bored, and everytime she goes to the pet store she buys me something new. She even posted a video of me on youtube. If you search for fido cockatiel chattering, my video comes up.


Human feet in motion MUST be examined thoroughly, regardless of the height I sit at..

Hi.
You live in Calgary Canada! That is where my cabin is where I live in the summer. My bird also likes to fly EVERYWHERE. She normally doesn't make a very good landing. but sometimes she lands on the window seel and won'y come down until you throw a soft stuffed animal at her and then she will fly straight to my shoulder.

Thanks.

Carson the girl who had Nachita and is from San Antonio

You live in Calgary Canada? That is where my cabin is and where I live every summer. You're bird flies on the window seel, mantle, and everything else. That is what my bird does exactly. We got her wings clipped at the vet but she still was able to fly as soon as they grew back (in 2 days!) Well, Your bird is pretty cute!

Thanks

  Hi ChiChi
Thanks for coming to visit me! I think you are a very nice looking bird as well. Do you live alone with your human? I live with three other cockatiels here...Lemon, Snowangel, and Cinnamon. It's fun when Mom let's all of us out to play on our play gym together. I share my cage with Lemon. I like sharing my cage with her most of the time. There are other birds that I live with as well...there's Sun-E (parakeet), Trippy (white eye conure), Giggles (umbrella cockatoo) and Murphy (scarlet macaw). At times all of us will try talking to Mom at the same time. She will laugh then and talks right back to us. Thanks again for coming to visit me. Hope to hear from you again. Also be sure to visit the other cockatiels when Mom gets their pictures up in here, which will be soon.

  Hola from Mexico!
Hola, CHI CHI:
thx so much for the nice welcome card You were the first feathered friend to respond. My dad´s niece is the person who got dad all gung-ho for birds, and she has 3 or 4 cockatiels. I´ve never met her, because she lives far away and I am a native Mexican, but I´m sure there´s a connection to you from me in there somewhere. I do have a question I´d like to ask your mom. My dad has an opportunity to adopt another little guy that still needs to be hand-fed, because his Mexican dad doesn´t have time to care for the little guy. I don´t know how I will react. Dad thinks if things get too hectic here with 2 macho Mexican hombres, the youngster would make a wonderful gift. Most of my type here in Mexico are not trained at all and used for decoration in restaurants, mostly in cramped cages. Let me know what you would think if your mom brought home a twin for you, okay?
Hasta la Vista, ChiChi! adios...Benito

Come visit me, Junior, Charlie & Benito.

  Nice to meet you!
Most of my family are full flight too. Mommy just loves us to fly around and then land on her hands. Of course all the windows have a plastic cover so we don't get hurt and curtains on the other windows. Its such fun to be full flight! The Caiques don't fly very well and have to just watch. Mom says don't make them feel bad. They are special too. teehee Here's a vote for a beautiful bird!

  Hi, from Charlie
Thanks for talking to me Chi-Chi. I'm a very happy bird and I sometimes get on my owner's sister's nerves. She likes quiet, so when she comes in I usually start singing a LOT!!! Ha-Ha-Ha. She's not really a bird person, but my mama is and we have a lot of fun teasing her sister. I love my tiny Christmas Lights on my tree. My mom put them on this past Christmas and I made her leave them. I got a little depressed so she put them back up for me. I am very lucky. I get lots of love. I hope you are as happy as me.
Bye,
Charlie

  You asked about my nickname. . .
Hi Chi-Chi, you asked about my nickname on my blog. My nickname comes from two main things: 1. I look like I am tie-dyed and 2. whenever someone tries to pick me up, or ask me to step up I put my head down for scritches, almost like I am "silently protesting", so "silent protestor" + the tie-dye turned into "Little Hippie"

Talk to you later!

I BREED COCKATIELS (AS A HOBBY). I HAVE A COCKATIEL THAT LOOKS LIKE YOURS THAT STARTED MY LOVE FOR BIRDS. SHE WAS SO SWEET THAT; I ASKED FOR ANOTHER FOR XMAS. WELL, THEN I GOT ANOTHER ONE AT EASTER, THEN ANOTHER ON MY BIRTHDAY. THEN THEY STARTED BREEDING. AND THEN I STARTED ADOPTED AND RESCUING BIRDS. MY LIFE IS SO FULL OF SINGING AND CHIRPING. AND, IT ALL STARTED WITH A LITTLE 8 WEEK OLD COCKATIEL. LOL. GIVE YOUR BABY COOKED PASTA, BEANS, CORN, OATS, AND JUST A LITTLE SAUCE WITH SOME PELLETS.ALSO SWEET POTATOES. I MAKE A VARIATION EVERY DAY AND FEED THEM A TABLESPOON EVERYDAY. I ONLY LEAVE IT IN THE CAGE FOR ABOUT A HALF HOUR. THEY GET ALL EXCITED WHEN THEY SEE THE DISHES AND START CHIRPING 'ME FIRST!'
