Hi, I`m Saffron! I was adopted a few years ago but now my family have to move and they can`t take us cockatiels with them. They have been a great home for me and Lynn, and I learned a lot about how friendly people can be. I am not scared of people, but I don`t like fingers too much. I will step on the back of your hand if you hold it flat and don`t rush me.

I like to fly and I`m super curious. When I`m out and about in the house I will explore things so be sure to keep anything I can`t chew on or climb on secured elsewhere!

My favorite trick is flying over and landing on your head. I will fly to your head and enjoy your nice big flat warm bird perch of a head for a while and then fly off again :)

I eat nutri-an cakes or avi-cakes, and while Lynn is more into eating fresh greens than I am, sometimes I will give them a go.

Ask about adopting Lynn and I today, and we`ll entertain you with cheerful tweets and flying demonstrations!


In nature, cockatiels live in large flocks. A single bird in a cage spends much of his/her life being lonely because humans have things they must do that take them away. We therefore will only adopt a single cockatiel to a household if there is already at least one cockatiel living there. Otherwise, cockatiels must be adopted in groups of two or more.
