    Four years ago we adopted an unwanted female cockatiel, who we named Chloe, from a pet store. She did very well for us, though every so often she would lay a couple of eggs. A year ago Chloe began to develop a large lump in her lower area. Chloe had this lump before, what we assumed to be an egg...

    Hi, It's been a really long time since I've been here, and at the moment, I'm at my wits end. In a matter of 7 months, I lost my 1 year old cockatiel Isis when she flew out the open door while I was in college. I then had a blue Pacific Parrotlet who was killed by a snake (yeah, a wild snake)...

This is the second time I've fed it to her without any side effects, and I found that it was ok on a...

    OMG! Isis is afraid of the toaster! I was toasting some bread and had her out on her cage and when the toast popped up she freaked out and took off flying. It took me a little while to calm her down enough for her to land near me. It was funny though. Now she's waiting for me to go butter the...

    I have had my two cockatiels, Bronwen and Griselda since they just reached adulthood seven years ago. They were sisters and always lived together. Unfortunately we have recently lost Griselda, and I am not sure whether I should find a new companion for Bronwen. Bronwen is hand tame, and...
