Kim W. wants to know
Can I Put A Baby Budgie In With My Cockatiel?
One-word answer. NO!
We recently were given a baby parakeet from a customer who found it outside her apartment building.
She could not keep it as she has an ailing bird currently and didn’t want to take a risk.
Cynthia expresses her frustration with the FeatherBrite birdcage lighting system:
I have the swag lights that require two bulbs.
I bought the 16 watts LED bulb and the UV blue bulb in September, and now they’re burned out.
I don’t even see the same bulbs as a set for sale on your site.
I have a Pagoda-style light that requires one bulb but those apparently aren’t sold for that style anymore.
I can’t keep buying lighting fixtures. Help!
Hello, I’m writing this because I have a 10-year-old Cockatiel female.
I’ve had her since I was 14 and she’s the most important thing in my life.
She’s gone through a lot though and has had to survive 2 emergency surgeries to save her life.
Becoming egg-bound and near-death both of these times due to chronic egg laying.
I don’t know what to do to help.
Linda L. would like to know:
Is the size of the Tropican Lifetime Parrot granules much bigger than the Tropican Lifetime Cockatiel granules?
Hard to tell from pictures
The Cockatiel size granule is 2 mm, the Parrot size granule is 4 mm.
The stick-sized pellet is about 3/4″ x ¼”.
Barbara D. wonders:
I have 2 Blue Fronted Amazons.
I have a heated Thermo Perch in the cage but am concerned about the winter room temperature when I bring the birds out to the living room in their cage to be with us, their room is set for 68/69 but the living room is more like 66.
So I thought the Snuggle Up panel might be good to add to the perch.
They have not checked out the warm perch yet.
I have seen them on the heated perch in the winter before, this perch is second to lowest perch in their cage.
Should I raise the perch a bit higher?
David K. is conflicted:
I am conflicted about what I read about artificial lights for birds.
I have cockatiels.
My avian vet says to be careful about such lighting which can damage a bird’s eyes (retina).
My vet has had first-hand experience with this.
I currently use ZooMed Avian sun lamps, overhead.
William F. wants to know:
I have a question, is that appropriate?
If yes – I have had 2 cockatiels, m/f, for about 6 months.
They are about 2yrs old and happily paired.
A few months ago I even watched them having sex !!! (a shocker for me … :)) – but ….. no eggs, no little birds.
I do have a nesting box in the big cage, but neither bird has paid it the least attention.
