Right? So weird since I'm used to my super self-absored bonded Budgies haha.

A pretty birdie you got there! I think whiteface cockatiels are quite pretty, I'd love to have one!

Good luck with Alfie, I hope you'll have fun with him! c:

I just wanted to pop in and give everyone an update on Alfie. We're still working on trusting my hands, but he's definitely improving. He loves eating and seems to have gained weight. His next vet visit is November 11th, hopefully the vet likes the progress!

Thank you. He got a cage upgrade as well. Got him the F040. I move in a week, so it's still in the box. So excited to get it set up for him.

Default new cockatiel

Your new bird is a beauty! You mentioned the dry legs. Bennie had dry skin, too. My avian vet suggested beta carotine. You can use the same soft gels for humans. Just make a tiny pin prick in a soft gel and put a drop on the bird's food. They seem to like it. Once in a while I would give Bennie a soft gel (they like to bite soft things like that) and just wait until he punctured it and take it away. That way he'd get a little but not too much. It is better to control the drop yourself though. One time Bennie bit one and it squirted the gooey red stuff on his face and neck feathers. I had to clean it off so it wouldn't eat too much.
