age of bird

by mimi

i just bought a white female cockatiel in Nepal.. not expensive.. it was 3 days ago.. I also have a green with grey head little parrot.. they are both in the same cage.. my new one.. is watching her friend the green parrot all the time..does not move.. just from time to time and for eating.. now she is sitting on my shoulder as I am typing.. my question is:
I was told she is a female..
she hardly make a sound?? is that normal..
I love her.. she is so sweet.
oh, her beak is small and pink and so are her feet.. can you guess her age?

I gave her a quick shower.. she was so dirty....

Determining the age of a bird
by: Tracie

There is not a way to tell how old a bird is by looking. The fact that the bird was sold at a low price and dirty indicates a strong possibility that it is sick or diseased and could pass something on to the other bird.

Please use this Find an Avian Vet link to find an avian vet for your bird so it can be examined to make sure it is healthy. If the new bird is ill, then you will need to bring in your other bird to be tested and possibly treated also.
