I love your cursor <3 I got a question on cockatiels. I'm doing every inch of research I can on them, cages, food, toys and etc. I'm hoping to own one in the future, not sure when but whenever I feel ready to get one. I have taken care of a harlequin macaw, african grey and a lovebird for three years. Those birds were my ex's. I do have personal experience with birds but I know very well each bird is different in it's unique way. Part 1/2


2/2 Even was a vet tech for 6 months too, when I was with my ex at the time. I plan on going back to work when the new year starts but in a different vet place & working on college. My mom smokes but she got a smoke room. Got one cat, she’s scared of her own shadow is the best to describe her personality. My sister going to have a baby in mid november but she doesn’t live with us. I know to keep all eyes on the cat & baby, make sure the air is clean too but is all of this okay or no?

Hmm. Honestly, It’s hard for me to say. The only one who can really answer that is you. As long as you take all the necessary precautions, it can be fine. Like every bird, every person and situation is different. I think you can make it work. You’re just going to have to be careful. For instance, I know your mom has a smoke room, but just to be extra careful I would go ahead and get an air purifier for whatever room your bird will be in.

It sounds like you’re researching and going in the right direction though.

I just purchased a parakeet, and. at first he was okay and he was looking around his new cage. but now he's sort of breathing hard. and it's kind of scaring me. I don't really want him to die of shock or anything. I put a towel over his cage, and im playing budgie trills to calm him down. but it doesn't seem to be working.


Hmmm. I would definitely leave him alone for a bit. Could there maybe be something in the room that is stressing him out or scaring him? I’m feeling a little useless on this one, as I don’t think I’ve ever had this happen before. Any followers have advice?

Hello Amanda. I was wondering if a Vision M02 (24x16x34.5) cage would be big enough to house two budgies?


I would say so, yes. I house mine two each to a double large cage, but I tend to go overboard. That sounds big enough for two, but I would not add any more than that to a medium Vision cage. Is that the double one? If so, even better. I know length is more important than height, but I will tell you that the budgies will use all the space. Perches at different heights mean they can jump around. Plus, at least when I got mine, it was only like $13 more to double it.

So I just started reading the comic Chew and I LOVE it. I&#8217;ve been blazing through it and I HIGHLY recommend it if you haven&#8217;t read it. A lot of it centers around food, and in the comic, the USDA is a bunch of lady agents who each have an animal partner. And a fair amount of those are birds! Including this random agent who has a cockatiel for a partner. 
One of my favorites in the comic is a rooster named Poyo. It&#8217;s all ridiculous and fun and you should read it.

I may be just a little birb on the internet, but I can see that there’s some upsetting things going on right now. I worry that some of you may not be ok, even if you don’t say so.

It’s ok to be upset, especially when bad things happen. It’s ok to not be ok even when nothing is going on.

image

It’s ok to be lost. It’s ok to be unsure. There will always be plenty of time to figure things out, no matter your age or circumstances, it is NEVER too late. It is NOT too late.

image

Sometimes it can feel that way. Sometimes it can feel like too much. But when you start to feel that darkness tugging at you, you just look at my birb face and know that you are needed.

image

Because I need you around. I need all of you around to see what I’m going to do next! I’ve got so much planned and so much adventuring to do and I can’t do it alone. I want you to be a part of it.

image

Without you, I’d just be some birb. But because you’re here, I am POOF BIRB. You have changed my life forever. My birb life is not as long as a human’s, but I’m so glad that so many are here on my blog! It makes me happy to see so many care about me, a birb. You have made me so much more than just a cockatiel, and for that, you are important to me.

image

My adventures would mean nothing without you to share them with.

Thanks for being there. Please continue to be there.

Would I be able to do some fanart of your birbs? :3


d;ksfhaskfda sk OF COURSE! That literally makes my day for the next YEAR when people do that. You can either post it and tag me (although sometimes I miss these) or you can submit it to the blog!
