Hello! My name is Charlie. I came to Mickaboo from an aviary with 10 other cockatiels - we`re probably all related somehow.
No one really knows how old we are, but we are somewhere between 2 and 8 years old. Since cockatiels can live to be at least 25 years old, we`re still young!
I`m pretty fond of eating lots of good food (Lafeber Nutrian cakes, fresh veggies, fresh corn, romaine lettuce, millet as a treat) and discovering the new toys we have in our cage. We have discovered something called a "boing" that`s pretty fund to play on. And, if you like singing, I`m your guy - Skippy and I can lay down some sweet chirps in the evening.
Because I haven`t been around people very much in my life, I`m still finding out how nice y`all can be.
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.
