Meet Carrington, the Foster Cockatiel

He鈥檒l be staying with us for a few months.
the breeder that I use was in a bit of a pickle with shipping, so I offered to help give him a temporary home until it鈥檚 warm enough for him to head to his forever home (for a breeding career 馃槈).

He鈥檚 very quiet so far and seems quite content to sit and beak grind.

He鈥檒l have a cage all to his own, as it is never ever recommended to keep parrots of different species in the same cage.

I hope he is going to a really good home, it will be traumatic for him to leave you, I don't like the fact that he will be used as a breeder, somehow that makes me feel that he will not get a lot of personal attention.:(

So, you aren鈥檛 wrong.
already though, the breeder has taken to my pictures and videos and he just may end up as a pet ;)
He鈥檚 a natural pied, but with splits for Ino and White-face; so paired with the right girl I could see why she鈥檇 be interested in him.
But he鈥檚 just so stink in鈥 sweet ;)
How old is he?
Maybe she will get attached to him and give in. I started out with 4 from a rescue situation and over a few years it grew to 13, what's a few more :LOL: . My logic is, I care for them, pay the vet bills etc. the spouse does not have to do anything so what's the problem :ROFLMAO:, but I did not have young children around to deal with.
Someone is finding his voice..

You have to keep this guy :D

I will say that I think that this has convinced me to get a female cockatiel if I go that route someday. Carrington is a love bug, but with me working from home...I need a quieter animal :). The pickles are as quiet as can be, and I think that a female 'tiel would "probably" be less vocal :)

Anyway, he's here for another couple of months, so there will be more to come.
Think twice about that, female cockatiels are really prone to chronic egg laying.:sick:

So sad for him, I hope his new home is as good to him as you have been.
