Talking New cage!!!

Here is some pictures of the new cage for my cockatiel! I feel so bad for her... She isn't confident enough in herself so she will only go on the first few perches by the bottom (on her own). I can place her up in the top but she won't move unless I move her. I hope she gains confidence soon! I'm sure she feels so tiny in such a big cage..

One picture is the new play stand my mother bought for her "grandbird" She is a great lady! Ignore the messy room and lack of space.. We make do with what we have! I will be getting more perches to help her get around and more toys to fill up the cage a bit!

That's a massive cage - you could easily have 5 'tiels living quite comfortably in that. I think she is just nervous of the huge space, hope she'll eventually settle in .

Petco.com! I was only planning on spending $150 tops on a cage but when I saw this one for $209 on sale, I couldn't pass it up. My mom has a SMALLER cage for her budgies that was almost $400!! I think I got a great deal.

That's what I said! Half of me wants to wait until after we move and half of me wants to buy another now. I don't know...

Buy another now, she will be happier especially with all that space. Then when you move you can get some more

Would you like to convince my fiance? I'm having no luck!! He thinks we should get her tested for her gender before we buy another.. That way we can buy only 1 gender from now on and not have to worry about mating. I guess it makes sense? I have no idea.

It really shouldn't matter to be honest. You should be able to stop them doing stuff no problem she would be really happy with another friend regardless of the sex.

How do you prevent it? I would love to know, just in case I find a pretty male!

The first weekend in May! May 6th to be exact, in Paso Robles. I'm excited I'll have to take some pictures of the event I wanted to take all the birds home last time! They had the most beautiful lovebirds and parrotlets... They sold all of the big parrot breeds right away so I didn't get to see any.. The amount of finches they had was insane! They only had 4 cockatiels left we we got there, so I'll make sure to get there early this time!

long nights treatment and not giving a nest like object simple. long nights means you cover the cage 12-14 hours a night so they think its winter so they wont want to raise a family then. and if they dont have something they see as a nest, they wont have something stimulate them to nest (means no boxes, no tents, huts, etc)

tiels i find are usually the least hormonal birds out there and usually arent so determined to breed, despite being easy to breed. they are pretty easy to deter from breeding, but some are more determined than others, its not likely with cockatiels.

Seems easy enough As for covering them up 12-14 hours, does it matter if it's not silent? I have no issue covering them up that long if I get a male but the cage is in our living room so I know it won't be quiet for that many hours. (Fiance is obsessed with playing video games late) As long as it's dark, they think it's winter, correct?
