I have a wonderful husband(perfect actually) he wanted to surprise me w/ .........another cockatiel.....but I have read to have one fully tamed before you get another.....Kimmie seems alot happier, she's playing w/ her toys now and I do LOVE Petie(new one), but I wanted to bond really strongly w/ Kimmie before a new one........so my ? is can you tame two birds at same time? Has any one done this?Any suggestions at all?
I love my hubby(he meant well), he didn't know, I love both birds. But I'm selfish I wanted a really strong bond w/ all of them that I got,so plz help!!!!!!!!!

Just wanted to say that I have made process w/ Kimmie and Petie, each of them get one-on-one time in bathroom for 15mins. four times a day, then we all three spent qualitly time ( on my shoulder) when I clean up(I talk the whole time) or on my knees when on the put(read them my e-mails), and Kimmie takes shower w/ me one day and next day it's peties turn. They step up now, but still bite:(.............they are going to teach me patience thats for sure.........

Another question(gosh I'm full of them, huh) I know that cockatiels take time to eat greens, vegetables,eggs,ect., Before my husband bought Petie Kimmie would eat everything! But now no matter however I present it(mixed w/ pellets,on top pellets, between cage bars, on mirror, paper in bottom of cage, ect.,) she and him will not touch it. Why did she change?

Well I'm the type of girl(I say that cause my 29 birthday is this month & I'm in denial, funny that having 4 kids 11 girl, 9 girl,and 2 twin8month old boys doesn't make me feel old but 29 does,huh) that if you tell me I can't do something I will break my neck to do it. And all books and websites say taming 2 birds at same time is next to impossible, well it can be done.......the key(I'm learning patience)is go slow. They both "step up" now, shower w/ me,ride on shoulder, no longer biting,and eating just about anything(hey I said "just about" ok). My poor husband still dosen't know that getting another cost my a greater bond,even though I love them both SO MUCH and we're doing ALOT better they will never love me as much as I love them, but thats OK w/ me. Loving them and cooking for them is payment enough!
