I brought home a new tiel today! He (I think) has one bad bumble foot and the other is marginal. He was hand raised and is very tame and willing to be loved and held. He is a cinnamon pearl I'm told. I have named him Sebastian!
If he turns out to be a she we shall call her Miss Sebastian! I include pictures from my phone, not too bad really.. He is sharing a cage with Good Charlotte who is also very tame.
Honestly I could not resist him. I let him explore the cage to see how he does and he climbs and perches normally.

He/she is adorable, know i'll give my opinion. I have a female tiel who has yellow under her tail as well. Though, My opinoin your tiel may be female but, I am just giving my opinion but, of course its good to hear the others think before taking my opinion.

Aww, what a cutie!! Nice thing? No need for a DNA test - if it stays a pearl, it's a girl! :giggle: You'll know after his first molt. How does he do with his feet, does he get around well?

AARRGGHH I have tried to post an answer 3 times and keep getting the you are not logged in nonsense when I am logged in. Please someone fix it.



Yes he gets around very well, climbing all over and perches well. I found him sleeping on the floor of the cage this morning so put paper in the cage on top of the grate. I am leaning toward a hen so will ask for name suggestions?

My first bird was a cinnamon pearl tiel, her name was Snoopy :giggle: Still think it's a cute name! :p Pearl is always a good one too, if a bit generic

He/she looks like a sweetie. There is always room for a cockatiel, isn't there? :biggrin5:

Yes, there is always room for another tiel. They are so sweet and fun and easy to care for. I am going to say she from now on based on behavior and chirps. She is now renamed Valentine! She had a good day eating and even playing with the toys in her cage. She takes a bit longer to step up or down onto a perch because of having to position her bad foot for the move, but otherwise is perfect. I held her tonight and let her sit on my shoulder while we watched tv. She preened me and nibbled on my dangley earrings. When it was time for bed I put her in the cage on the floor and she was not happy and wanted to be let off at the perch. She also had joined the group on top of the cages and they all sat and behaved liked good little tiels.:biggrin5:

She/He continues to do well. Hes not as used to being touched or held as Good Charlotte is, so we have all been holding him and just getting to know the little cutey.
He sat on the couch this morning eating Nanna's left overs, yummy big bird food! So far he is fitting in so easily to the flock. I was in the shop today and all the siblings are still there. Someone needs to go buy them, they are so tame.:yesnod:

Wonderful news.
Now let's have some news about the rest of the gang, too. How is Nanna doing these days, as well as everyone else?

I am pleased to report that SEBASTIAN is doing well and fitting in nicely. I have decided that is his name and he responds to it. If I take him out if the room he flock calls for Good Charlotte. They have bonded and its a nice fit. They are both very tame and like to be held and interact with us.

Yes, it's very nice right now to enjoy Sebastian's calm attitude and quietness! Soon I know puberty hits and the songs and don't come near me attitude begins! He is a sweety so of course I will love him through it all. I promise new pictures this weekend!
