Hi! My name is Corky, Lavendar & Shimmer

I am a Normal grey Cockatiel from Troy, MI.

We call them Corky-Poo, Lavendar-Do & Shimmer-Too!

12 years old   M

Normal grey Cockatiel

Cheerios and chips.

They always head straight for the ceiling fan when we let them out of their cage. (It's turned off of course!)

They don't like strange, loud noises or dogs.

"We love it when Mommy or Daddy let us out of our cage so we can fly around. We also love to get our favorite snack--cheerios- ! And we love to ring our bell, dance around the cage, and show off by stretching out our wings."

They like to dance/run around/flap their wings..

Animals have feelings too and deserve to be treated with love and respect!.

  First of all, that is a great picture! I just love tiels. My birds are kept upstairs and we have dogs downstairs. My last tiel was okay with dogs until one tried to play with her. Since the lady I adopted her from had her wings clipped wwaaaaaayyyy to short, she could not fly at all. She got scared, fell to the ground, and the dog tried to play. For the record, she would not hurt since she never likes to kill a playmate, but the bird had a heart attack whenever she saw a dog from then on. All my other birds are fine with dogs. In my expirience tiels fly to the ground when scared, I do not know what yours do. I would suggest getting a dog that was not breed for any kind of hunting or chasing. And if they are inside, do not ever let them in where the birds are kept. You can let the birds around them else where, I just like to keep the cage area safe and happy. Hope this helps!

Come visit me, Kyoto and Peppermint Patty, Pete & Ava, Lola, Frank & Claudia.

They have their moments! From left to right they are Shimmer, Corky & Lavendar. Shimmer is a female, the other 2 are males. Birds are wonderful, aren't they? :) I love their personalities. Corky is so inquisitive and curious, he looks at things or us closely to see what we're doing; Shimmer loves to show off by spreading her wings or flapping them really fast while in the cage, and Lavendar likes to perch on my shoulder when I play piano.

Does anyone have birds and a dog and if so, how do they react to one another? My hubby & I are going to get a puppy sometime after we buy our house, and I was wondering if anyone has any experience with this.

Come visit me, Corky, Lavendar & Shimmer.
