My boyfriend has a sweet cockatiel that he loves like his own child. He handraised her as a very small chick(the so-ugly-it's-cute and spiky feathers and all! ) and she has been with him for about 6 years now!
I took some cute pictures of her today, I thought I'd share!
We're very happy she's doing great right now. She has been laying a CRAZY amount of eggs this year, and is finally done with the ordeal. At one point she had 22 she would not stop laying on! I think she wants to be a mom
I don't know anything about cockatiels, can anyone tell me anything about her color/pattern? She doesn't look like any of our friend's cockatiels, she's much 'softer' looking, and seems to have boyishly bright cheeks! At least from what I've seen from images.
She wouldn't stop singing too me while I took these pictures. I think she enjoyed seeing her reflection in the camera!
Very healthy looking girl. Im glad you got the laying situation handled. That always is a hard time for people with hens. Just make sure she has a solid diet with lots of calcium!
Thats a cute story thanks for sharing.

She always has gone crazy when it's time to lay, but this year was the craziest! She has a very varied diet and plenty of calcium for sure. We could never let anything happen to Nathan's baby girl. He feels like a proud dad every time she lays a little egg
Thanks for answering the question about her genetics! I thought she might have pearl in her, but I knew something else was weird about her color for it to just be that.
