My bird and i met a few years ago at a feed store in Jacksonville, Florida. We had come to buy some chicken food when we saw a prettty, big yellow cockatiel. We had never seen a yellow cockatiel before and so we bought Sven. When we got home i put Sven in a cage with Agador Spartacus, our other cockatiel. That was 2-3 years ago and since then we have bought Sven a very nice cage (Agador had passed away). I was also able to teach Sven a whistle, slightly hand train him, and get him to eat some of his pellets.
10/18/08 UPDATE- Sven has come such a long way since I last posted a description! She has become pretty darn consistent with her step-up, tries all sorts of chatter in her cage, screams when she's not happy, and readily eats her pellets. Good Job Sven!!
(we are now going to start work on more trust along with eating fruits and veggies!)

Hi! My name is Sven

I am a Cockatiel from Lemont, IL.

My bird was named Sven when we first bought her but when we found out that she was a girl we started to call her Svenietta sometimes. (pronounced Sven-yetta). She is also called Svenny-poo.

9 years old   F

Cockatiel

Still trying to open her up to foods other than pellets and seed.

My bird loves to hang out in the middle of the family room on her playgym and on a certain perch in her cage.



I love when my owner whistles and talks to me. I also really enjoy sitting on my playstand on the table in the middle of the room to watch television. I just LOVE attention!

She likes to go into a corner in her cage, puts one foot on the cage side, and flips flips over with her wings spread out..

  Hi Svenietta
Hello from Poppy and mom. I'm 4.5 years old now. Mom is having a few issues with me. I started plucking my feathers a few months ago and mom is not happy. She's trying different things to get me to stop. I was doing well until the other day when she cleaned under my entertainment center, she should know that's my nest! I do scream for no reason(it is normal for most of us in the am & pm but I do it more). Mom just ordered some literature on this and biting. I have also bit her a few times. I am in love with one of her friends and have never bit him. They do say male Eclectus are much more easy going than female. I have a good vocabulary,I like to sing. I am very pretty even with my feathers plucked. I'm a good eater, not very social only with my friend Frank, Mom's sister thinks I should go live with him, but no chance, mom will never get rid of me, I'm stuck with her until she dies. Mom hears of other Eclectus even female that are very sweet. She recommends doing a little research before deciding. She really thinks my sis Crocus is a lot of fun she does not bite.
Feel free to fly by for more info.
Poppy

Come visit me, Crocus, Bluebelle & Poppy.
