    My Pet

    Her First Egg!

    Sunshine, my Cockatiel pictured in my profile image, has layed her first egg tonight! She's 1 year and 8 months old, so I figured this would happen soon- she was doing this funny stance for the past week or two with her butt up and chirping softly, which seemed to me like a...

    Evil Fluffy Cuteness

    My cockatiel absolutely loves to watch television. I think the bright colorful lights and sounds excite him. He is especially crazy, however, when it's a very emotional, climatic scene, and the best is when it's a very sad one: The characters are crying, I'm bawling and grabbing...

    Cockatiels are the best pets.

    Mine is over 10 years old and acts like a little dog. She "barks" when she hears me come home and follows me while I walk around my house. They are better than dogs or cats because they live longer and are cheaper to maintain. Cockatiels rule!
