I just brought home a pair of cockatiels today! The male is a regular pied and the female a cinnamon pied. They were fed and watered, but that was pretty much it. I spent a bunch on toys and new perches and I won't even think of using the moth web riddled cage they were staying in.. I was told that they were nippy, but I trimmed thier flights and they are really quite sweet! They were given to a family member when they were a 3-6 months old and that was almost 3 years ago. Their names are Bullet and Angel. My husband wasn't too keen on having them here, but guess what?! First thing he does when he gets home is talk to them and hold them!:rofl: They are settling in quite well. I even saw them playing with some of their toys:thumbsup: I do know in the past that Angel laid eggs(on the grate and presumably not fertile). My plan is to limit their hours of light to discourage breeding. I'm pretty sure they are siblings since they were originally purchased together...
