Almost a year ago i bought a male cockatiel from a lady who was supposed to be a breeder. But when i got to her house she ran out to the street where i was standing with the bird. He was in a VERY small cage that was about 6 by 4 inches and it was filthy. He couldnt even stand up in the cage.
Her front yard was filthy. There was junk flowing out from her garage door onto the drive way and all over the front lawn. She also had a few small dogs that were constantly yapping. And she would not let me inside her house.
After i bought him and put him in a big cage i just bought him and put him in my car, he almost immediately started screaming.
Ever since he has been screaming constantly. And he wont let me get near him at all. When i try to he hisses and flops away from me.
I just want this cockatiel to love me and want to get near me and STOP screaming.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE HELP!
