hi cockatiel fans,
i just got a mistreated male cockatiel called tinker. The woman how i got him from never cleaned out his cage so he was dirty he had no clean food or water so he is skinny he was never let out the cage so his flight feathers were all suck and hard he was in a cage with a budgie who bullied him and pulled out nearly all of his crest feathers because he was so dirty he never cleaned himself, he is soooo scared of people and flys of if you come close to him i have let him out the cage every day but he will not go back in in less you grab him which is hard and he bites and draws blood as his beak is sharp as he had no cuttle bone all my fingers and coved in tiel bites ow!
i have all so i have seen that he has blood in the middle of his chest and there's cut there but its so hard and in crusted in blood so its hard to see i think it was caused by the woman's nail a she got him out the box because he screamed like he was in pain
twice already he has crashed into wall and caused himself to have a nose bleed i feel so sorry for him!
my female cockatiel molly has tried to preen him but he wont let her. also when i go close to the cage he flaps about in side and i am worried because i don't want him to brake a blood feather!
i have given him a shower (with he did not like ) and he is eating i have had him more that a week now and i don't no what to do !

cockatiels rule!!

I think you should just give him more time. He was severely mistreated and he needs time to learn that he is going to be safe.

Just make sure he eats and drinks and stays healthy. Other than that, he will let you know when he's ready to trust people again. A week isn't long at all for a bird to get used to a new home, so wait it out a little longer.

I hope that helped!

How horrible! Sad I agree with the above,give him some time. He's in a new home and he already doesn't trust humans..
