Post: "Taming" found cockatiels
Posted by toby on 8/10/08
We lost our cockatiel in mid-June. Kind people found birds
that looked like him, but were not. They were not bird
people; we are; and we now have three birds. We've been
looking for their owners, but have been unsuccessful. Two
are in one cage and are doing well. The other one is in
his own cage and is also doing well. All are healthy and
thriving. Right now they are singing and chirping.
The question is: they now have a flock and the flock does
not include us. We love the human-tiel interaction and
miss terribly ours who is very friendly and likes humans.
Is there something we should be doing to encourage them to
bond a bit with us? I see some movement in that direction
but I also think they know our function is to feed, water,
and clean cage them.
Any words of wisdom would be welcomed.
