How hard can it be?

I don't think there is an easier bird to tame than a cockatiel keep in mind, all my cockatiels except for Joey are completely wild and Joey wasn't even hand fed!

I apologise for the quality, like the vertical-ness and so on...

This video shows how friendly cockatiels are with a little persuasion from their favourite foods!

Cockatiels eating millet - YouTube
You can hear Ralph the red-fronted kakariki calling at the beginning of the video and then a load of budgie chatter, then a baby zebra finch wanting to be fed

This video shows how quick it was to get one onto my hand that has NEVER been on a human before

This is the very first time I have ever done this with them, no kidding. I decided it was going to be my little experiment so I took my ipod just in case hehe.

Congrats they are very cute

I find cockatiels very easy to tame as they have a very trusting nature

That is so sweet! Nice V-day present, eh?
Sadly Dolly (female tiel I work with who didn't have a name but I named her Dolly ) Refuses to come onto my hand at all times, she will only perch if thats the last resort when shes on the floor and customers come in I think I have a few pics of her on my phone.. gotta check

Missing you always

Well they're all breeder birds who are going out in the aviary so I don't really NEED to tame them. I just think it will be easier for me so I can do quick health checks and stuff. I just need to get them flying to me for millet in the aviary when it's finished and then we will be sorted Joey is easy. He doesn't fly much and just lets you pick him up so I wont have a hard time with him ever
