Joey L asks:

My Cockatiel, Woody, turned 25 this year.

Is that good for a cockatiel and why do you think he is still going strong?

Dear Joey

 

25 is great for a cockatiel.

 

What type of cockatiel is he?

 

The normal colored bird is likely to live longer than a mutation color like an albino.

 

A bird who has been fed more than just seed and water will usually live longer.

 

A bird that has been able to fly will usually live longer, providing the house is bird safe.

 

You have been doing well, keep it up.

 

We love pictures.

 

Joey L replied

 

I’ve always kept Woody very active.

 

I clip his wings but allow him to walk around and interact with my other pets.

 

And he loves a good car ride and when I run the vacuum cleaner.

 

He is in love with my dog Maddie.

 

He is unable to fly these days.

 

However, he is as feisty as ever.

 

Thanks a lot for answering my question.

 

I appreciate that 😊

 

Joey
