I'm not sure if this goes in Parrot Tales or Adoption/Rescue Stories? Sorry, if its in the wrong place.

Yesterday I sold a bird cage that I didn't need to this bird person, he had a rescued Amazon, senegal, 2 young Sun conures, many Finches and a Cockatiel.

He called me today asking if I wanted to buy the Cockatiel since his family complains he has to many birds.

And on the phone I said yes.. obviously! XD

I wasn't sure if I should get him since it was a little random and I didn't think it through. Plus I currently don't have the space for another bird.

What do I do?

On the ride back..

I call him..

And...

I end up getting the bird. =P



He's a year old, male.
White with a very little yellowish color.
Very friendly, enjoys getting a head scratch.
He's so friendly and social, he rather be perched on my hand then inside the cage.

The perch and four bowls is all he has at the moment.
I'm gonna go check if the pet store is open, its like 5 minutes away.

Ooooooohhh!!! Another baby shower! Crack out the bubbly Margaret!! You can do AA later!

Awe, a cute sweet baby like that it always amazes me that people can get rid of them. Their loss, your super duper gain!

Congrats!

Did you find out a name for that little fellow, or you gonna stay with an old one? How are the other birds reacting(probably to early to ask), but anyway?
We're waiting for updated story about yellow 'tiel!
Tiel 6 That icon was been kept for special occasion, so there it is instead of bubbles!

Such a sweet heart!

I think cockatiels are the perfect pet parrots. So loving and sweet. I'm jealous!

He's wings are clipped which I don't like and he's not eating very much other then that he is doing great, very active.

I named him... Kinder! =D Its a German chocolate but you can find it almost anywhere.

Pocky is very excited, like a little kid who just heard the ice cream truck. xD
Cipi is being his usual self.
Kinder is currently annoying my family with his lovely voice. =P Though, he's usually quiet.

The pet stores where closed so I didn't get anything. I gave him one of Pockys toys but he seems to be playing with everything but the toy! He's also a little bit bigger then Pocky.

Yoshi hardly ate anything the first 24/36 hours he was here, it's probably just a new surroundings thing, give him time Very Happy

And Kinder is such a cute name!! We used to have a female cockatiel named Cinder, but it was because she was grey... totally unrelated to chocolate, haha

Oh yeah, and you officially have the two most adorable cockatiels I've ever seen in my life. And I'm not usually taken with cockatiels Very Happy

He will eat more, every moving, changing home is stressful for them. Chico came with clipped wings too, now she jumps and climbs like a crazy, so don't worry Wink You can make his life easier, by using the same what I used for Chico, Check that picture with Chico.
Kinder surprise? Like that egg on Easter for kids? Love the name!

Don't worry about him not eating. All my birds were food shy around me for the first week.

You need to post some more pictures flappinhappy

Thanks for the advice! <3

Kinder is eating better now but seems to be a little picky with food. ^.^

Kinder surprise! Very Happy I used to love making the little toy while eating the chocolate. Mmmm, if only Kinder was a female. xD

I'll post some more pictures later, I'm a little sleepy.

Lutino 'tiels are my fave!! I lost my female lutino a few months ago. She was an amazing gal.

What do you mean by a few months ago? I'm still a little new to this forum. Very Happy

She wouldn't stop moving! This is the best picture I could get without flash.

Very nice. I was thiiiiiiis close to getting a D90 from a friend of mine who was upgrading, but I'm still on the Nikon/Canon fence. And now I don't have the money, so I just do what I can with a cheap point-and-shoot and i drool over everyone else's dslrs Razz You take awesome photos!!

I started photography the same year I got Pocky, I only have two lenses. Now all the money I have I spend on the birds! =P

Photoshop is a big help as well, I will post a PS guide later. ^_^
