I was part of a flock of 5 rescued from living in a cramped and unpleasant outdoor-only cage typically used for finches. One of my flock mates was attacked and killed by a rat and I was badly injured!

Years later, my foster family brought me to the vet to treat the scarring on my back and under both wings. X-rays showed that bites actually went into my internal organs! So I consider myself lucky to be alive. I looked terrible, but Dr Van Sant has made me look a lot prettier.

I`m a Lutino male and have very large red eyes that I use to appear scary even though I`m not. I also have a lot of white feathers. I love to sit on rope swings and spirals even though my flockmates don`t. I don`t ever have to fight for space! I have never been handled and am not tame and pretty afraid of humans. I don`t know how old I am but I think it`s between 3 and 10 years old.

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.
