Greetings! We are Shamus (gray male) and Maggie (yellow female), and we came to Mickaboo when our previous caretaker became too ill to keep us. (This happens a LOT with pets, so make sure you have plans for yours!)

We like our Zupreem Natural pellets and different veggies, especially a nice spring mix. Our foster mom feeds us twice a day (meal-feeding) so we don`t pig out :)
When we`re not sleeping or eating, we LOVE to chew on our toys - lots of soft wood and paper. Such good exercise for us! While we don`t like hands that try to grab us, we do like to be talked to and have people around. That`s what we call "ambient attention" in case you wondered. We`ll even chatter back at you sometimes!
If you are looking for a pair of cockatiels to brighten your home with chatter and color, we might just be for you!
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.
