How are things with you since your sister is laying eggs? Hope you aren't too lonely and are able to relax as you aren't being harrassed. Mom needs to give you some of the new toys to keep you busy! We got our parcel this morning and I hope mom gives me some of those nubbies really soon!

  Hey Dani!
Yeah, I'm at it again! Mom did have me on a strict diet, but I guess I was already geared for laying eggs and there was no stopping me! I am young and healthy and content. Mom wishes that I would settle as well. All is quiet around here today. Leaving you a vote!

  hi Danielle!
Joey here and yes, I am very popular with the ladies! Mom has the blinds closed when we are out and we have never had any trouble flying into windows...otherwise we might. I am the leader of the flock and everybody loves me! Especially Poppy. She is protective of her eggs, but mom removes them when she comes out and Poppy is very gentle and just hisses a bit and taps mom's hand. She will not tolerate any of the other males looking at them or trying to check 'em out. she gets very upset and I chase them off. It does work all of us males up when she lays. Sunny sings almost all day and chases her when we are all out together. Of course I chase him back and put him in his place. Mom removes them so I don't sit on them because it gets us all too worked up! Cleo hasn't tried to check 'em out too much, but he is interested. He still feels handicapped because he is clipped so he is a bit shyer. I am leaving a vote for you, too!

Hugs,

Joey and the Nelson flock

  Hi Danielle!
Poppy here! You guys need an avatar! Yes, I am still sitting on eggs and I am about 1 1/2 years old. mom says I look so cute sitting on the eggs. That is great that you got a nice clean cage!

Us 'tiels like popcorn, too. Do you like spinach?

Sometimes we take a bath in our water cups, but we usually get misted or a dish to bathe in. I am not too keen on the mister, although mom is trying to get me used to it. I did like getting my back wet as that is so hard to do when splashing in the tub!

Cleo is anxious to get his pilots license back and even though he is clipped, he still likes to fly up to the curtain rods! Mom is very proud of him as he now goes to his door and waits for mom to put her hand up so he can step up to come out. He has been very shy about that and the end of Dec. he started to do that every day. He is such a sweetie! You ladies would love him!

Sunny has chewed on the plastic zipper on mom's vest so it no longer zips up all the way. He chewed the teeth off! Hee hee hee! He loves to find mischief!

Joey has been chewing holes in the upholstery of the stool in the bedroom and I like to remove the tacks from it! We make a really good pair!

Have a great evening Danielle! V4U and Caitlin too!

Hugs,
Poppy and flock

Hey hen! Yup, I'm at it again! Mom may end up putting me on a diet in the new year, but right now, I am sitting tight! I was chomping lots on the cuttlebone before I started, and the eggs are well formed. Have a great day and try and get into mischief...hee hee hee!

  hello again!
Poppy here with a vote for you! Hopefully Caitlin is done with laying eggs! Have you discussed the weight factor with your vet? That has worked wonders for a friend of mine to get her 'tiel to stop laying. Apparently, it stops the hormones and since the birds weight is down, they don't have enough fat reserves for laying or sitting so they stop! Some females lay eggs even when there is no male present, but it can help some to get the urge. Since you don't have a male 'tiel, it shouldn't be a problem. I am just starting to molt a bit so will be busy doing that! Cheep with you later!

Poppy and friends

  Hiya!
Do you think it is ok to remove her eggs if she still wants to lay? Hopefully she will stop. We wouldn't like to see her get health problems. Is she chomping on the cuttlebone? I have stopped laying so far and mom hopes I am done for the season. That is too bad that she hurt her wing. Candy used to do that too. How many eggs does Caitlin lay? Has your mom talked to the vet about what to do to help her stop? I am leaving you a vote too!

Hugs and snugs,
Poppy and friends

  Hi again!
Well, I have some news for you as well. Lastnight, I laid another egg! Mom knew it was coming! she was hoping that I was all finished, but I showed her! I have really been chomping on the cuttlebone and mineral block. I usually don't sit until I have 2 or 3, but I am sitting a bit. I am very excited and so is Joey. Since I am so young mom is only a bit concerned, but she still sort of worries about me! we will have to see what happens. I turn very gentle and mellow. Here is a vote for a fellow hen! Squawk later Danielle!

Hugs and snugs,

Poppy and friends

  Hi Danielle!
Poppy here, and it is completely normal for Caitlin to be protective of her eggs, especially when she has another cagemate. That would help her to become aggressive. It is good that your mom put her in her own cage and gave her more privacy. How big is it? Perhaps it would be better to keep her in her own cage as that would stop her aggression.

How many eggs does Caitlin lay? Does she sit on them? It takes about 3 weeks for a 'tiel egg to hatch, so if she is sitting on them, let her have them until she loses interest. Mom left mine in for the month of Sept. I sort of got restless in early Oct. so mom decided to remove them and I was fine with it. I am getting flirty and chomping on cuttlebone again and mom is hoping that I am done with eggs for the season. Make sure Caitlin has lots of cuttlebone and mineral blocks to chew on as she will need them so her calcium levels aren't depleted. As for the stopping her hormones.... 'tiels can be notorious for egg laying and you don't want her to become egg bound. One of the main factors is daylight hours. Start to cut them back. Also, how many nutritious veggies and other foods is she getting? The more green food she has the more it can induce those sorts of behaviors. Cockatiels live in an arid climate and go to nest when the rains come as there is an abundance of green food for nestlings. Mom blogs with a friend who has a 'tiel that gets egg bound and her vet said that one of the factors is also weight. She has to cut her birds diet to about 1 tsp of seeds and 1 of pellets for the whole day to get her birds weight to 88grms. He said that it stops the hormones. That is something that your mom should talk to her avian vet about. The easiest thing to control is the daylight hours. Hope this is helpful! Mom knows how frustrating it can be when you have a 'tiel intent on laying eggs. Sassy was like that. Hopefully Caitlin will be ok! Squawk later you guys! I am leaving a vote for you!

Poppy and flock
