Cinnamon and Spice are an ADORABLE pair of bonded cockatiels. They are super attached to each other, and do everything together! Spice can be a "Grumpy Old Man," but he is so cute while being grumpy - he makes us laugh every day! He does some whistling and LOVES spray baths - he will take one every day given the opportunity! Cinnamon, on the other hand, is not such a fan of getting wet, but she does love Spice dearly! Her favorite things in life are Spice and food. Speaking of food, they are both good pellet eaters (Zupreem Naturals) and their other favorite food is wheat grass - especially Spice! The two of them preen each other daily, and if one happens to get out of the sight of the other, they call frantically to each other.

While they are not super hand tame, they will step up if in an unfamiliar situation and have become super comfortable around humans. This pair is true love and devotion in action, and they are just lovely to have around!

You can see a video all about us here from a Mickaboo online adoption fair in 2021.

Mickaboo has taken great care of us for many years in several foster homes, and honestly we don`t understand why we haven`t been adopted already! Our current foster home isn`t looking to adopt any more birds but she thinks we are very sweet.

We think Spice is about 12 years old, which is a slight guess but seems about right.
In nature, cockatiels live in large flocks. A single bird in a cage spends much of his/her life being lonely because humans have things they must do that take them away. We therefore will only adopt a single cockatiel to a household if there is already at least one cockatiel living there. Otherwise, cockatiels must be adopted in groups of two or more.
