Default My other bird- a Cockatiel

When I got my budgies I had originally been looking for a cockatiel.
The budgies are so silly, loving and entertaining I fell in love.
By chance I heard about a lady who had a cockatiel and two parakeets for sale so I agreed to take the keets.
Because my check was bigger than I expected and the lady is in a hurry to place them all she gave me a great deal... I'm now the proud owner of 4 budgies (separate cages each) and a gorgeous Tiel!! I haven't thought of a perfect name yet but I'd love to introduce him

He's stunning! What a handsome tiel, look at that crest!

I'd name him Popcorn, with such a buttery shade of yellow

Thanks for sharing his picture!

Popcorn is awesome!! He looks like he's going to be very much the king around here. His crest makes him look very proud. I'll put popcorn in the name jar tonight! Thanks for such a cool name idea!

Wow! That's a lot of birds to have acquired in one short week.
I hope you are finished now adding to your flock now or you may end up being overwhelmed.

I'd put any additional acquisitions on hold indefinitely until you've learned as much as possible about these birds and have had several months to bond with them.

Your new tiel is very pretty!

If that is a sandpaper cover on the perch the tiel is on, I recommend you remove it right away.
Sandpaper covers on perches are not recommended as they contribute to bumblefoot in birds.

Please take a look at these threads:

FaeryBee, you are absolutely right!! I am DONE acquiring birds. Even though I'm a stay at home mom and have lots of free time I want to spend "quality" time with each bird every single day, a few times day. Need to make sure that each bird feels safe and loved. It's time consuming and takes great patience.
Five new birds is pushing it but I promise you, there will be no more (I literally just promised hubby the same lol.)

Stacy,

I'm very glad to hear you are making a wise decision and limited your flock to the five you now have.

Please take a look at these threads.
It's best to have a Birdie First Aid Kit on hand and,
if you haven't already done so, consider starting an "emergency fund" for any Avian Vet Bills that may arise in the future.

FaeryBee you are being so helpful and please know I appreciate that. I'm going to be 42 next month and I've finally learned when someone is kind enough to bless you with knowledge and advice, you take that advice and be grateful!
I will start an emergency vet fund and on Monday being my search for an actual avian veterinarian.

Congratulations on your new cockatiel, he seems to be quite the happy fellow!
There won't be a dull moment with your 5 birdies and they will certainly provide you many fun times and happy memories.
Best of luck with them!
