I have one cockatiel and four parakeets. They were rescues from an ex-friend who were not caring for them properly (she was also evicted from her apt and then fled to who knows where after stealing money from her roommates!!) Unfortunately, none of them are very friendly, except for the cockatiel. She doesn't like if you put your hands near her, though.
He's my friend's cockatiel and awfully cute!!! He says Thank you and pretty bird and does a wolf whistle when you walk past his cage, oh and he waves. LOL He's sooo cute and Joey keeps staring at him....
I would love to have a bird, but honestly, their life span intimidates me and I don't want to get a pet and then have to give it up or something. Because I have no idea what I'm going to be doing in 10 years!
I used to have a pearl white-faced female Cockatiel. I had her for about 4 years, than my mom gave her to a friend of hers and she passed away a year later. :( She used to chase my dogs around the house and bite my Corgi on the nose if he got too close.lol She'd love playing cards (she'd grab them and fling them all over the floor). When I move out I am definitely going to get another bird. They're such amazing pets!
