This has to be the LARGEST Cockatiel I have ever seen!

 

Cookie is about two years old and ended up being to big for his owners so they surenderred him to me.

to big for the cockatiel cage they had him in. they went to the pet shop and bought a tiel cage and feed him a tiel diet, not sure how he survied the two years but now they are all scared of him, so new home has to be found. i really wish people knew what they where getting into before they purchased birds!

Indeed! :wub:

 

Just having some room to move around will make him think he died and went to heaven.

 

Were the people abashed when you told them what he was?

No they still insisted that he was a tiel! I think he is a bit freaked about the space he has. I have him in my HQ flight cage which I know alot of people have for 4 or 6 budgies well the cage looks soooooo small with him in it! But it is about twice the size of what he is use to.

Have these people lived in Australia long? Every zoo in the world has a sulphur crested - that and the kangaroo are the two types of fauna everyone knows!

WEll he is very freaked out, new birds around him and larger cage. I have managed to find him a home with someone who have cockie experience which will be good. Now I have to try and work out how to get him back into a carry cage
