Thank you everyone. Took better photos of the queens once they were introduced in the aviary.

new cockatiels

What beautiful birds! And what a beautiful flock you have! I see you live in Florida, so I guess you have a large outside aviary? They must love it! Just one question...with so many birds, are you able to interact with each of them? I am sure they are very happy with their flock situation, great you can keep them like that! Do you have any that bond with you, that you can handle and give "scritches?" Just wondering how it works to have such a large flock, but I think it must be wonderful to have so many beautiful birds in your care!

Thank you guys so much!!

Oh trust me, just cause you have a nice sized flock doesn't not mean you won't love them any less. 4 of my birds are homegrown. We love each other to death. They always fly to my head, hands, shoulders to get head scratches or just play on me. They LOVE their head scratches. They always fight for it. I tamed Maya completly. She stayed on my shoulder for 5 minutes without millet. Keeping in mind that I didn't even have her for a full week and she came with me as a really scared bird. We are now best buddies. I have a strong connection with all my birds. They are all able to step up besides for Cloudia and Maple. It will be very difficult to tame them. They were in flea markets most of their lives. It's not possible to tame the in the aviary due to too much room and too many birds for distraction.

AGREE! Never seen one that looks quite like her. I love that coloration and she has such a nice look in her eye also!
