Joey L asks:
My Cockatiel, Woody, turned 25 this year.
Is that good for a cockatiel and why do you think he is still going strong?
Woody and Maddie – best friends ever!
Catherine Tobsing replied
25 is great for a cockatiel.
What type of cockatiel is he?
The normal colored bird is likely to live longer than a mutation color like an albino.
A bird who has been fed more than just seed and water will usually live longer.
A bird that has been able to fly will usually live longer, providing the house is bird safe.
You have been doing well, keep it up.
We love pictures.
Joey L replied
I’ve always kept Woody very active.
I clip his wings but allow him to walk around and interact with my other pets.
And he loves a good car ride and when I run the vacuum cleaner.
He is in love with my dog Maddie.
He is unable to fly these days.
However, he is as feisty as ever.
Thanks a lot for answering my question.
I appreciate that 😊
