I have something to say...

Hi everyone. This is pretty uncomfortable for me since I feel so mean and horrible about it and I hope everyone isn't too quick to judge me. I wanted to tell everyone when this first happened but I guess I was a bit scared
Some of the members already know, thats because I really needed someone to talk to and I was in such a horrible state I really didn't know what to do.
Ok so I'm just going to come right out and say it.....
We gave Casper back I'm sorry I tried but with family problems/stress and Casper being so hormonal and the attack I really didn't have much of a choice.
Everyone knows that I got a cockatiel on the 3rd of Feb. I was so happy and thankful and just feeling so wonderful. Well on the 6th of Feb (a day before my birthday [thanks once agan Si ] ) my parents made me call up Brittaney and ask the poor girl to drive 1 1/2 hour to come down and take Casper away I totally broke down when it was time to say our final goodbyes and I locked myself in a closet for an hour and just cried
I felt so bad.... only if I go back and change my parents minds. They said that 2 cages would look to crowded and I asked to move one of them to my room and after quarantine they could live in my room and they said they would think about it but never gave me an answer.

Casper was pretty hormonal too and I tried to make him stop but he just kept on mating with everything (even tried with my hand but I pulled away)

The biggest thing that made them make this decision is Casper trying to attack Diego. Diego was let out without me knowing and Casper was having his out-of-cage time and Diego decided to be friendly and tried preening his tail feathers. Well Casper hated the thought of Diego being on his outside perch and lunged at Diego. Thankfully no one got hurt except for my hand which I had to put in between them to stop anyone from getting hurt.
I really think that whatever happened was my fault - only if I had persuaded my parents or kept an eye on Diego or something else- then this wouldn't have happened
I feel like a hypocrite and such a bad person Casper (Casanova) is back on kijiji looking for a good home... http://edmonton.kijiji.ca/c-pets-to-...AdIdZ355495907
Only if I had acted differently :'(

Everyone has the right to judge me, I deserve it after putting Casper and his family through all this stress

Thank you for listening

Missing you always

I am sorry Shivani I can understand though...I have a hormonal male myself so I really do understand!!

Will you be looking for another cockatiel or just sticking with Diego?


For future reference the long nights treatment can work wonders on hormones, 12-14 hours of darkness reduces hormones. Cupid tries to mate with my hand too, its gross!

Oh I'm sorry.
Hormonal birds are a nightmare.
Sounds as if he needs a nice female tiel to get along with.
Dont beat yourself up.
Tiels and budgies dont make good bedfellows often.
I hope you find another bird one day, maybe another budgie?

Thank you Kate I tried telling her about getting him a friend... I couldn't because of the limit of birds and breeding and I already have enough stress as it is
I would love a budgie friend but Diego becoming untame is my biggest nightmare :/ He's so sweet and loves us so much, what if turns into one of those petshop budgies who dont give about people?

Yes, it's healed It only bled for a couple of minutes, although none of the tiels I work with have ever bit me that hard. Even the conures bite didn't hurt that much
He got very (mirror) aggressive and I thought he was so sweet and everything.... mood swings probably :/

So sorry it didn't work out for you Shivani. It did cross my mind when I didn't see Casper on your siggy and I sort of knew there must have been a problem.

It is the right thing for you to do and I would have done the same. I hope everything is back to normal for you.

No one will judge you Shivani... somethings are just out of our control.... we all know you are a great birdie Mommy ... I hope when the time is right you can get a tiel that you can bond with... I hope you are feeling better soon.

Like I said before you did the best thing in this situation! You were thinking about Diego's safety!

I hope too that you can get a 'Tiel of your own one day. Maybe get a hand fed baby, it would most likely get along with Diego the best.

You've done nothing wrong at all. You tried to give him a great home and not every bird is right for every person. It is hard, to deal with things like this, but over time you'll feel much better. I'm not judging you one bit, and I know nobody else will either

Is his ad up yours? Or is it the one the girl has posted?
