    Hello from the north!

    Hey everyone, I'm Kay, and the proud new owner of a lovely cockatiel.

    This is Apollo, whom I got from a pet store ( >_< ) in early Feb.


    It's been a while since I've owned a bird, so I've got a lot of questions. I kinda doubt he's the healthiest of birds. Due to unforseen circumstances, I was unable to get him to the vet for a well-bird check. Thus I am always fussing and worrying. I'l probably end up putting up another thread in the health section to bug everyone with questions.

    Anyways, looking forwards to meeting other birdy folks!

    Hello & welcome to TF. Looks like you've got a pretty little whiteface there. Were they able to give you any idea of sex or age? He looks something like my whiteface Theo (check out my album). I hope we can answer your questions or at least point you in the right direction.

    Thanks for the welcome sandra.

    He's definintly a male, and I'm guessing somewhere around a year, maybe more? He had he adult feathers when i got him, but there were a lot of spotted/striped feathers hiding away in places. He's moulting again at the moment, and the 'baby' feathers were the first to go.
