  I lost Sunny about 2 weeks ago, my two keets, Sunny and Piper share a cage together. I heard them having a "night fright" and whistled and spoke soothingly to them from my bedroom, just a few feet away and they calmed down. But next morning I found Sunny in a corner on the bottom of the cage. He was such a sweetheart, I miss him.

Come visit me, Hawkeye Cricket, Cody, Katy, BeeBop & Piper.

Hi Shimmie,
You sound like a wonderful cockatiel, and we just had to let you know! I bet your mom loves the memories of you as a tiny taradactyl, our mom and dad would have loved to have seen us that young. Oh way, maybe in a sibling! Here is a vote for you!
