Best to vape out the window or in the hallway. Budgie and tiels can be very sensitive to things like that.

I've merged your two threads regarding your cockatiel, Pablo into one.

Please keep all your questions and updates about him in this thread.

Thanks!

Hi there

Congratulations on adopting Pablo!

You've been given great advice. Right now, it's important for you to take a few steps back. He's scared and nervous, and you don't want to give him the wrong impression of yourself by being so overbearing right from the start. Soon, he will settle down. Putting on music for him, covering his cage, etc. are all good steps to take, so well done with that!

Also, vaping is indeed a hazard to birds, so doing it outside or in a room away from them with the door closed is the best option.

Keep us posted on how Pablo is doing!

Well when pablo takes a drink , he snorts all the time like he submerged his entire beak in water. He doesn't even know how to drink properly?

He also sits on the perch more often with his head facing his back, like my budgies do when they sleep, but he does this when he is awake... Is that bad for his neck? geez lol.

I didn't think cockatiels were so helpless..

Perhaps it would be a good idea for you to take Pablo in for an Avian Vet visit to ensure he is in good health.

It would also be a good idea for you to join Talk Cockatiels as well as that species is the primary focus for that forum.

Best wishes!

I tried to join talk cockatiels two days ago but i cannot post on their forums, I guess they don't add new members often.

This evening things seemed a lot better. He played with a toy finally, enjoyed a spray shower in his cage (He opened his wings and went towards the spray!) , and ate some budgie zupreem pellets (The stores in my area don't sell pellets - So I'll have to order him some online) !! Still wont touch the veges I clipped on his cage.. I attempted to make a pellet seed mash with chopped veges but he didn't give in. Still hisses when i change his water but he appears happier at least, doesn't drown himself when getting a drink and isn't always looking behind him no more. He made some happy chirps today and some screetches , so hopefully he is starting to relax in his new home.

Im really surprised he liked his spray shower, my budgie Poncho doesn't care about his shower, and Pinto dislikes them. They both don't waddle in water unless its a hot summer day so I gotta give them spray showers sometimes too.

Send me the User ID you are trying to use with Talk Cockatiels and I will see if I can get help for you.

I'm glad to hear little Pablo is doing a bit better now.

They added me finally but thanks !

I mentioned my budgie diet to them and asked if it was ok for cockatiels, and they said no bird should eat grapes , I didn't know that! OOps i have been feeding Pinto and Poncho (budgies) grapes sometimes.
