    My Cockatiel Loves Me More Than His Cage!!

    I have a 9 week old tiel and got him 4-5 days ago and every time i put my Tiel back in his cage he really wants to come back out so i open the door and he flyes and comes and sits on my shoulder and makes a squeking/cherping noise. Is this right? Does he need to relie on his cage more? or is it ok for him to love me this much? OH and his wings are clipped!!

    He's just like a normal baby, he doesn't want to go to bed.

    Do you think maybe his cage is too small for him? How big is it?

    My baby does the same thing. He's about 11 weeks now and manages to flap/flop down to the ground from the playtop and wander throught the house till he finds me. Then he'll try to hop up onto my feet. Or, if he is on the playtop but I walk too close, then he'll dive off and aim for my shoulder. Goofy bird (but I love it).

    Abby tries to run back up my arm unto my shoulder when I put him in his cage. He'd definitely rather hang out with his human pets instead of sit in his cage!

    Very normal! Peaches has gotten a lot better about going to bed but she used to run up my arm before I could get the door to the cage shut. I always say the same thing to her every night when I put her to bed. I don't know if that helps or if she's just matured but she's gotten much better about it.

    i would consider you lucky! i've had Mo for around a month now and he still would rather his cage! i take him out regularly and open his cage door for him to come out freely. today was the first day that he actually tried to jump to my elbow, it was right there, but he missed. it was cute!!

    Chirpy (9 weeks old) would def prefer to be out than in. Unless of course he is hungry! I feel touched he wants to be with us.
