Do you like my picture? This is my "full body profile" so everyone can admire my figure and my pretty checkered tail. Did you know that female cockatiels wear camouflage? The yellow and grey pattern on the underside of our tail feathers mimics the appearance of sunlight seen through the gray-green leaves of a eucalyptus tree in our native Australia. Our babies all have the same pattern on their feathers, even the boys until they are about a year old. So when our families are out and about, it is very hard to see us in the trees. I'm what is called a "Normal Grey" cockatiel because I look just like a cockatiel in the wild. My foster mom thinks I am beautiful, and I'm sure she is right. I have my back turned in this picture because I didn't want to get off of my foster mom's shoulder. She is very nice and I don't mind sitting here all the time. She calls me a "shoulder surfer", which seems to have something to do with water, but I'm not sure what. I've had a pretty exciting life so far because I was left on the doorstep of Rabbit Haven (which is a place that is just full of bunnies! Just like Australia!). The nice lady at Rabbit Haven has been taking care of me, giving me toys and playing with me, until Mickaboo had room for me. So here I am now, at Mickaboo. My foster mom is ok, but I'm really really hoping for a permanent home of my own. I've been a good girl -- don't you think I deserve one?
Notice: Cockatiels are flock animals, and most of them are much happier when they live with at least one other cockatiel! Because of this, unless a household currently includes another cockatiel, Mickaboo usually requires that a minimum of two cockatiels be adopted.
