Part of my wing was amputated, but I`m all healed up now and I am a real character!
I`m a smart bird - I don`t like hands but I often figure out what my foster parent wants me to do, like get in my carrier.
I love to whistle! And I love veggies - arugula, broccoli, sweet potatoes, green peas, corn, goldfish crackers(!), orzo, rice and pasta are all fine with me.
When I see other birds flying in my foster person`s house I try to fly as well, but I can`t, so I get frustrated. I`d love to live with another bird that doesn`t fly, at least that often.
I`ve made progress on being OK with hands - I used to be terrified even of my foster person changing my water dish and stuff but I`m getting used to that now and I don`t freak out as much.
I`m a morning person and I love to greet the rising sun (screeech! hellooooo sun!) so hopefully you`re a morning person too like me, right?
Come on over and ask for Skeeter and let`s be friends!
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.
