    Trena don't forget to quarantine the cockatiel. You take a risk
    of losing all birds if you don't. Also sanitize your hands
    before picking each bird up until the quarantine is up. I've
    gotten mixed responses in the past on how many days to
    quarantine. Some say 30, 45 or 60 days. I didn't take any
    chances and did it for 60 days. I learned the hard way about 30
    yrs ago with my very first bird. I had her for 3 yrs (parakeet)
    and put another in her cage and they died 2 days later from
    disease that the new bird carried.
    Have fun with your new addition!!!
    Hit the blue link above and you can email me direct if you'd
    like more info. I have a pied male cockatiel who's 2 1/2 and
    he's awesome. I've had plenty of lovies too.
