    Smile Hand tamed cockatiel

    Hello!

    I've got my hand tamed cockatiel yesterday. He is very young, is about 1 month old. He steps up with no problem whatsoever. In the breeders house he used to be outside of the cage with other birds. He sat on a long rope with his friends. I've been wondering if i could take him out. He wanted to leave his cage when I've opened it once. I'm not sure if it's still the right time to do os, even though he isn't really scared. His crest is bit low so i thought he could be a little scared, but I'm not sure. Any tips are very welcome!

    Re: Hand tamed cockatiel

    Hi, and welcome! Congrats on bringing home your new baby. Being only a month old, he is quite young to be going to a new home. I see no reason why you could not take him out of cage. However, do so in a small room where curtains are pulled, and there are no mirrors on the walls or in the room. He could fly into mirrors or windows and injure himself severely, even causing death

    Thank You for replying! He really wanted to get out of the cage and I've got him out. He flew a few times that ended in a fall, though i don't see any unusual behavior from him. I've made sure he was okay and that was it. He went out a lot today, not gonna lie. Eventually he stopped flying as much but there were some tries. I have roller-blinds on the windows so he wouldn't fly into them. From what I've observed, he leans forward to fly most of the time when he's about to. I put him on a counter then and he just wanders around. I will be very careful with him. Thanks!

    That is a great plan of action. Being out of cage will help you to bond well with him. We will watch for updates!
