Cockatiel from New Zealand, Intl

Lucca was the first offspring from my whiteface pair. I took her out to hand raise her at three weeks as a companion. Best decision I ever made, she is my world. She was the only bird I handraised but still calls to her brother and friend Seagull who was handtamed/paren- t raised and who she was housed with for 2 months in the aviary for a bit until I could get a nice big cage for her (I hadnt expected to bond so strongly and originally was going to put Lucca in the aviary (with her mum who is also handreared) and breed from her). About 2 weeks into hand raising her I changed my mind. Check out the pics of her mum (lace) and her dad (chintz). If you look real close you can see a teeny bit of white fluff poking out between their wings in the middle. Thats the moment I first saw Lucca.. Awards

Hi! My name is Lucca

I am a Cockatiel from New Zealand, Intl.

Lu, Lulu, fluff (her baby nickname only used when having cuddles or doing good things in training)

8 years old   F


At the moment I like eating oranges, but my fave foods are pears and apples and when I am a good girl I get softfood and millet spray pieces.

I like hanging out on top of the curtains, I love unpicking the seams to mummys throw cushions and I sit on the play gym with my friends too, much to Wyatts disgust. But my favourite spot is nestled into mummys neck.

My pet peeves are not getting attention, not getting tickles when I ask for them and my cage. If I could I would be permanently stuck to my owners shoulder.

I love when my owner is around. I stick to her like velcro and I preen her eyebrows and she gives me neck tickles. When I was with my brother Seagull as a baby we both sat on top of mummys head and made nests out of hair. We both still do this once a day.

When I want a tickle I put my head down, move closer to my owner and give myself neck scratchies. This tells mummy to give me tickles. I do this when I've been naughty and my mummy gives in so easily. I also really don't enjoy mummy being away so I've developed the annoying habit of persistent crying if mummy is out of eyesight. When she is in eyesight and I in my cage I cry and pace until I'm let out..

The cuter I am the less trouble I seem to get into....

You are a beautiful tiel. My name is Apache and I'm a 5 month old White Face Tiel also. I whistle lots of tunes including We're Off To See The Wizard (Mommy's favorite Movie). I also have a Brother, Parker who is an English Keet and he's almost a year old and he says lots of stuff including We're Off To See The Wizard LOL. We also have (2) Sisters, Oz is a Rose Breasted Cockatoo (Mommy's Dream Bird) and Mommy is her 3rd owner and she says she's now in her Forever Home. Mom also wants to know if Oz knows she's a Cockatoo cause she's sweet and very quiet. Whatever that means. Than there's Cheyenne, who's a Meyer's Parrot and Mommy calls her my Miss Attitude Bird cause she wants ALL of our Mommy's attention. I also want to say that we think all of your Birds are beautiful. Glad they all have a good home. Well, I have to go now but I'm gonna leave a vote for ALL of you. Please stop by sometime and see us cause we love company. Nite from the USA.

  Hello Lucca
Lucca, since you are so cute, I suppose that means you are never in trouble?! Thank you for visiting Tidbit and Dexter. There are actually many more in the flock. I have to find the time to add them all...eleven total cockatiels! All of yours are adorable; aren't they the greatest? I've always wanted to experience New Zealand...maybe one day. Take care:)

Come visit me, Whimsey, Jack, Piper, Waverly, Sedona, Gandolf, Scout, Hobie, Tidbit, Bentley, Dexter & Angus.

  Hi Lucca!
Charles here, thanks for stopping by-- what a cool flock you belong to!! I also love your coloring. I've never seen a cockatiel that looked like you. Your baby pictures are very cute :) It sounds like you and your mum are very attached. That must be very nice to have been raised by her right from the start. My mum bought me from a breeder and it took me a loooong time to learn to trust her, but now we're the best of friends.

Have a great Monday!

Come visit me, Larrot, Charles Kingsley Wentworth & Theodore.

  Hi Lucca
You sure are a pretty bird. I am glad you stopped by to visit again. I am a really good whistler but mom hasn't heard much more that 'pretty boy" in words.

Come visit me, Hilda (even though I am a boy), Sunny & Pierre.

  Hi Lucca
Thanks for stopping by for the visit. My mom did not know what kind of cockatiel I was since I don't have those big orange spots on my cheeks. Mom was told that I am a boy but she is not sure how to tell. Stop by and visit again.

Come visit me, Hilda (even though I am a boy), Sunny & Pierre.

  Hi Lucca
Just got done saying Hi to the other two tiels in your flock. They are both good looking. We glad that your mum was able to put them on the BC. Here is a vote for you and hope that you and your flock have a great day. See ya.

Come visit me, Pretty - passed away 8/23/14 & Harley.

  Hi Lucca
Pretty here, thanks for coming by and seeing us. Our play gym is nice, mom and dad made it for us and they are working on something else also. Can't wait until it's done. Yes rules the house, until he does something wrong and gets into trouble. Then I try to not do the same thing. Here is a vote for you and hope that you and your flock, glad to hear that you are not alone, have a great day.

  Hello Lucca
My mom has always had a soft spot for tiels. We have had three, my mom says she would like to have another. Right now my dad says that unfortunately we don't have room for any more birdies. I'm sure my mom will get her wish some day soon.

Come visit me, Max - BOTD 7/9/10.
