Rescue tiel

I'm taking on another cockatiel.

A lady messaged me asking if I would swap my baby diamond dove with her baby cockatiel she had recently bought because she thinks it needs an aviary home and it's not fair on her.

She bought the baby from a breeder who told her it was hand tame. He had PULLED feathers off her to make her look younger. He got it to show her and suddenly it bit him, then he got a dowel perch and hit it over the head as hard as he could stating that that is how to train a bird not to bite!!!! poor baby!

She will be here in about 45 minutes, pictures when she gets here.

i want to hit that guy over the head with a dowel perch and see how he likes it, maybe it will teach him he is a terrible breeder.

Thank you all! The lady has called the RSPCA about him. He is literally abusing his animals. I'm expecting them any minute now. Pictures when she gets here

I don't know what to call her yet though

How far away is she coming from?

I can't stand people who hit animals, Rocky was hit with a perch by some unspeakable before I got him, hence why he took so long to get him used to perches and not flinch the moment you picked one up and why he still isn't keen on men. Boy if I ever see that person again he'll get a mouthfull and possibly a perch shoved somewhere unpleasant!

waiting for pictures

LOL she said that about perches! Poor Rocky :'( I'm not sure, Newcastle I think!

Thanks guys. Here's some awful phone pictures. I will pop up the DSLR ones later. Her wings are a disgrace. I say 'her' but I dunno if it's male or female...
SOUNDS like a male when alarmed!

I like hope or faith for her as well.
What a horrible person! This is why I hate being a human... People like that make me want to become an animal....

Poor girlie! I hope shes ok when she gets there...

Aww, she is lovely !

I am guessing 'her' as her face is not full yellow like my boys :P (I only found this out when I joined! I thought mine were male and female )

Awww what a gorgeous cinnamon tiel!!!

Since she/he is young its too early to sex visually. You could always try wing spot sexing but its not always 100% accurate, http://talkcockatiels.com/showthread.php?t=18307. Singing, heart wings, and beak banging are male behaviours.

She or he is absolutely gorgeous! I love Cinnamons. She may have had a rough start in life but now that she's with you I'm sure she'll be one happy 'Tiel!
