Sticks

Audrey spends a lot of time inside his cage.  Sometimes the other birds will push him around if they’re all on top of the cage together.  Also, Audrey likes to sleep at night inside the cage. But Conner wants to be near Audrey.  You can see Conner in the above picture on the bottom, looking […]

Happy Birthday Trevor

January 29, 2011 is Trevor’s birthday.  My baby cockatiel: Actually, for birds they call it hatchday since we start counting from the day the bird hatches from the egg.  My Trevor, we suspected that you were crazy for awhile because you chased Conner everywhere and tried to land on the cockatiels.  You’ve gotten a bit […]

New Year’s Eve Celebration

On New Year’s Eve we took Audrey down to the basement to celebrate.  This is Audrey’s flirty pose. Conner and Trevor often tromp around the top of the cage, leaving Audrey feeling insecure.  So we try to give Audrey some time away from the other cockatiels where he can do his own thing. Audrey had […]

Nestbox

The cockatiels have been going through a nesting phase lately.  Audrey is momentarily interested and then he wants to go back to his cage. Conner, on the other hand, can spend hours playing.

Trevor Kisses

Audrey and Conner play this game where you bend down, make a kissy noise and pop back up quickly.  Trevor makes the kissy noise, but until recently he did not grasp the popping back up part of the game.  Jon would pop up and he would run away. But this week Trevor figured it out. […]

Trevor

Getting cockatiels to enjoy interacting with humans is all about patience.  Trevor won’t always let me pick him up first, but if I pickup Conner then Trevor will always accept my finger.  He will also snuggle with me now if I’m snuggling with the other cockatiels.  I still can’t move quickly around him, but in […]

Cockatiel Nestbox

Cockatiels love to chew things.  So the best way to occupy them is to give them a nestbox.  Conner saw the untouched nestbox and realized that he has a lot of work to do. Audrey was more interested in making house.  You can see the top of his head in the above picture peeking out […]

Alone Time

Audrey is the most beloved cockatiel in the house.  If you pick him up, the others will yell.  If you leave the room with Audrey, the others will fly after him.  But this gets very tiring for Audrey.  He frequently wants to be put inside his cage just so he can be left alone.  So […]

Cockatiel Toys

Young cockatiels love to chew things.  The toy below had popsicle sticks between each ball.  In one day, Trevor shredded each stick! The crazy thing is, it was in his cage for weeks before he destroyed it.  This teaches the fundamental lesson of giving toys to birds: you have to be patient.  You have to […]
