Cockatiel

Afternoon all,

With great reluctance, I am looking for a home for our 4 year old male cockatiel. I'd like to find a home where he'll have plenty of out of cage time and interaction with an experienced owner/other birds (I'm sure many on here are experienced anyway). I'm based down in Surrey.

Hi @Bubble04
I saw your original post on JessCheekyMia's profile and contacted her direct passing on your message but haven't heard anything back.
Can I ask why you have decided to rehome and if we can help you stay together.
If your adamant about rehoming naturally we will help you. And pass on anybody who would like to offer a home.

Hi @DizzyBlue
Thank you for your message.
It really is with a heavy heart that I've taken the decision to re-home him due to health.
If I were only considering my own interests, he'd be staying with us but it wouldn't be fair on him and I know that there's someone that can give him the same care and love he's had here. He's a lovely natured fellow and a real character. I would love to keep in touch with him via regular updates and visits if possible.

Awwww that's a shame about it being health related.
Sounds like he's very well loved.

Hi @Bubble04

I'm Jess' husband and full time carer.

As beautiful as the cockatiel is, we have a total of 12 parrots here including 4 cockatiels. We don't want to overcrowd their cage as well as well as getting another bird to settle in with the rest of the flock. It would be unfair to your cockatiel as well as unfair to the rest of our flock if we take on any more parrots as we would need to dilute our time between them all. We have two female and two male cockatiels which one of the males we have recently taken in as a rescue spring last year and he is quiet demanding, I don't think that taking in another male would go down well with him.

Jess says that he looks absolutely gorgeous and with a heavy heart, for the reasons mentioned above, that she is going to have to say no to taking him on

Jess and I both wish you all the best in finding a loving home for him.

Thank you for your consideration Roy and I understand your position, I agree that our boy would be a male too many in the group there. We'll continue our search for a good home for him.

Hi All,

I see that our lovely boy has attracted a lot of likes. I can't help thinking that travel/distance to our home may be problematic for some, it's something we could perhaps overcome together if anyone is interested in giving our boy a home?

What a gorgeous boy. I am potentially looking for a friend for my recently widowed male cockatiel Pierre. He lived with a female before and I must confess to being fairly clueless with introducing two individuals together - I would be willing to try with the right bird though after I have done some thorough research on how to do it (any advice or direction to good advice appreciated!)

I'd love to know more about him. Diet, temperament, is he hand tame? In good health? What sort of house environment is he in now, are there other birds around etc.

About me - I have had Pierre for 6 years, his mate passed away a couple of weeks ago. He has a large cage which is in our lounge, and he is out for most of the day - he's only in if its unsafe for him to be out, doors or window open etc. He is not hand tame but is very friendly and sociable, loves to whistle and chat nonsense. There's usually someone home all day, it's rare we are all out. I have 2 small children so a fairly lively house usually. We are in Norfolk and have an excellent vets nearby.

I can't work out how to DM you but if you can then feel free to reply to me via DM.
