My son gave me a cockatiel then a week later gave me a parakeet so the cockatiel would have a friend. They get along fine. Would they do okay in the finch aviary ?

    I personally never mixed parrots (Psittaciformes) with finches (Passeriformes) as the hookbilled parrots can do a lot of damage to these smaller birds. If the aviary is very, very large, you may be successful, you would have to try it to see. But I would still be cautious as the situation could become unstable at any time, especially when any of the birds go into breeding mode.

    how in the world can you tell without DNA test if your lutino is a male or a female ?

    Not advisable to have a wooden cage as cockatiels love eating through wood keeping their beaks right. Our first cockatiel was worse than this one, but he has eaten the top and bottom rungs from 2 ladders, even though he has cuttlefish and beak conditioner

    Cockatiels (particularly females) can develop this terrible habit. In some birds it is nerves, they are uncomfortable about something in their surroundings. In some birds it is lack of stimulation from friends, family, playmates etc. They are very social creatures and need companionship. In some, it is due to hormones - this is mostly the female birds. Of the four females I've owned, three plucked to some degree. If I were you, I would definitely find a knowledgeable avian vet and have your bird checked for mites or a skin condition. A good avian vet can give you suggestions for curbing the plucking.

    Maybe give it some more toys to get his mind off it or some fresh leaves that are not toxic or if that does not work there is a bottle of liquid for sale called AVITROL FEATHER PLUCKING FORMULA and you spray it on the cockatiels back and they don't like the taste of it so they wont pluck themselves!

    You might want to be careful if a bird is really stressed if can kill itself by plucking it's feathers

    I have a 7 year old female lutino cockatiel and the bald spot on the top of her head seems to be speading down the back of her neck. She has been plucking her feathers for quite some time. She is also a very picky eater and only eats the small seeds in her food. Any information anyone can provide would be appreciated.

    Cockatiels are that kind of pet that always need stimulation in some way or form. When left alone always leave a radio or TV on. They can get frustrated and pull all their feathers out if they're alone too much. Have a great day.

    Y’all was very helpful because my female plucking all her features and the Male have all his. I think I have to separate them. They probably be fighting and that’s not good.
