TommyKydd had a tough day today, I took him to a great reliable pet store to have them check his back where he keeps preening and yelping. I was worried maybe there was another cause, like mites or a rash, but they had a good look and confirmed he’s molting 😅 They’re so much better at handling him too, it’s reassuring when I go there because I’m sometimes too afraid I’ll hurt him if I need to restrain him. He was a trooper! He also got some deworming medicine and to treat him I bought him a few sprays of millet. • Which Jett totally cashed in on and shared very excitedly 🤩 These 2 never get close to one another, so this is a rare sight! There were many young cockatiels there and I realised I really should stay away because I could have come home with them all. Broody much? 🤷🏻‍♀️ #IWantThemAllPlease • However. I bought a bendy rope perch and neither Tommy or Jett will go near it. They are both terrified. So I think I’ll have to take it out of their cage and try another day. . . . . . . #Cockatiel #cockatiels #cockatiellife #cockatielsofinstagram #cockatiellovers #tiel #bird #birdsofinstagram #pet #instapet #parrot #parrotlife #parrotsofinstagram #fluffy #calopsita #birdstagram #nymphensittich #cutepets #insta_parrotcute #southafrica #tommykydd #prettylittleparrots #parrotlife #cutepetclub #jettseven #animallover #petlover
Our children and I couldn’t go to work/school today, flooding overnight and roads washed away, so we are all at home being very chillaxed. Jett spent quite a bit of time uncoiling Eli’s hair, and then climbed backwards down his face. As one does 🙈 Poor Eli, it was sore but he tolerated it! #JettSeven . . . . . #Cockatiel #cockatiels #cockatiellife #cockatielsofinstagram #cockatiellovers #tiel #bird #birdsofinstagram #pet #instapet #parrot #parrotlife #parrotsofinstagram #fluffy #calopsita #birdstagram #nymphensittich #cutepets #insta_parrotcute #southafrica #prettylittleparrots #parrotlife #cutepetclub #jettseven #animallover #petlover
Help! Tommy is preening himself rather frustratedly the past 2 days. He often squeaks while he’s working under a wing, as if he just hurt himself. We’ve had him since November and he hasn’t had a molt in that time, but he’s an older bird, about 3 and a half, and I’m not familiar with things like mites or lice - do domestic birds get this? His cage is cleaned weekly, he eats and drinks well, but he’s acting like there’s either something with his skin that’s bothering him, or like he has a flea wriggling around(sorry only way I could describe it) • We contacted our pet store but since it’s a public holiday they weren’t open long but also told me to take him to our avian vet. Does anyone recognize what this may be? (He’s floofy because we’re having a cooler, rainy day, but isn’t always floofing all the time) . . . . . #Cockatiel #cockatiels #cockatiellife #cockatielsofinstagram #cockatiellovers #tiel #bird #birdsofinstagram #pet #instapet #parrot #parrotlife #parrotsofinstagram #fluffy #calopsita #birdstagram #nymphensittich #cutepets #insta_parrotcute #tommykydd #southafrica #prettylittleparrots #parrotlife #cutepetclub #jettseven #animallover #petlover
Jett’s dad recorded this from his home office, Jett is definitely looking for dark spaces and then swaying, it’s soooo funny 😄 I guess even for a male, it’s instinct to make a home? Oh well we’re enjoying the cuteness of it for now 😂😍🥰 . . . . . #Cockatiel #cockatiels #cockatiellife #cockatielsofinstagram #cockatiellovers #tiel #bird #birdsofinstagram #pet #instapet #parrot #parrotlife #parrotsofinstagram #fluffy #calopsita #birdstagram #nymphensittich #cutepets #insta_parrotcute #southafrica #tommykydd #prettylittleparrots #parrotlife #cutepetclub #jettseven #animallover #petlover
Jett’s latest ‘thing’ is hiding under my nightstand. I swear he’s acting like a female: moody, nesting, moody, possessive, grumpy... just weird. (Did I mention moody 🤔) He sometimes goes under there and sings to himself, rocking side to side 😦 I’ve never tested him to find out if he is indeed a male, but for the amount of noise he makes, and how quickly he imitates and picks up songs and words, I’m certain he is a boy. • I guess I’ll only be really sure if I find an egg under there one day 🤷🏻‍♀️or do a DNA test which I don’t plan to. Swipe to see second half of the video. [PS. Spoiler alert: it’s darn dusty under there 🤦‍♀️] . . . . . . #Cockatiel #cockatiels #cockatiellife #cockatielsofinstagram #cockatiellovers #tiel #bird #birdsofinstagram #pet #instapet #parrot #parrotlife #parrotsofinstagram #fluffy #calopsita #birdstagram #nymphenstitch #cutepets #insta_parrotcute #southafrica #prettylittleparrots #parrotlife #cutepetclub #jettseven #animallover #petlover
Jett got himself in a feeding frenzy - he couldn’t decide if he wanted to be IN the tin of rusks, or eat the one I was dunking in my tea, or eat the crumbs that had fallen EVERRRRWHERE, he literally ran up and down from indecision 😂 #FirstWorldProblems • Ps. Rusks are a South African staple, we eat them after dunking them in tea/coffee/milo or hot chocolate. [biscotti would be a close comparison] They’re dry and hard, so not too nice unless they’re dunked, and there’s a very delicate balance re how deep to dunk them, and how fast you can get it in your mouth before it breaks off and lands in the cup. This is also subject to how strong each rusk is, as to whether it can withstand a soaking and hold itself together! These are home made by me, so they’re pretty tough, but one needs to develop the skill of being able to judge each rusk accordingly. A uniquely South African science actually 🤷🏻‍♀️ . . . . #Cockatiel #cockatiels #cockatiellife #cockatielsofinstagram #cockatiellovers #tiel #bird #birdsofinstagram #pet #instapet #parrot #parrotlife #parrotsofinstagram #fluffy #calopsita #birdstagram #nymphensittich #cutepets #insta_parrotcute #southafrica #prettylittleparrots #parrotlife #cutepetclub #jettseven #animallover #petlover #tommykydd (Full disclosure: the images of the rusks when you swipe across are from the www)
We don’t have a play gym so the bois have a little set up every day to explore a bit, where they can be safe from our kitties. Jett is scared of the ladder, but Tommy climbs it quite confidently 👑 . . . . #Cockatiel #cockatiels #cockatiellife #tommykydd #cockatielsofinstagram #cockatiellovers #tiel #bird #birdsofinstagram #pet #instapet #parrot #parrotlife #parrotsofinstagram #fluffy #calopsita #birdstagram #nymphensittich #cutepets #insta_parrotcute #southafrica #prettylittleparrots #parrotlife #cutepetclub #jettseven #animallover #petlover
JettSeven started with a mark on the front of his beak, about 2/3 weeks ago. It was little and faint, and at first I thought my sons had maybe tried to use a marker on him 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️ • But gradually it got darker and a bit bigger. So I googled and wondered if it was a fungal infection. • [swipe left] This week I noticed it’s moved down his beak, and realized his beak has grown!!! I just had no idea how fast their beaks grow! • Fortunately after getting professional advice, we were assured it’s just a bruise probably due to him flying into something! Thank goodness 😅 (PS: at what age will he start picking his nose? Those boogers are worrying, OCD issues and all that ... 😬#AskingForAFriend ) . . . . . #Cockatiel #cockatiels #cockatiellife #cockatielsofinstagram #cockatiellovers #tiel #bird #birdsofinstagram #pet #instapet #parrot #parrotlife #parrotsofinstagram #tommykydd #calopsita #birdstagram #nymphensittich #cutepets #insta_parrotcute #southafrica #prettylittleparrots #parrotlife #cutepetclub #jettseven #animallover
This is Nomsa, aka ‘Gogo’ which means ‘granny’ in Zulu. She works in our home and is part of our family. She’s been with us 12 years and loves my children as her own. And JettSeven LOVES her! When she arrives in the morning, he crouches down and heart wings her, shouting until she comes to fetch him. And then he sings he a special song EVERY.MORNING. Nomsa had never touched a bird before Jett, and it took her a while to trust that he wouldn’t bite, but now she loves him and he spends hours with her during the day, happily keeping her company while she works. People underestimate the benefits of pets and the happy hormones they promote, he definitely makes her feel very loved ♥️ . . . . . #Cockatiel #cockatiels #cockatiellife #cockatielsofinstagram #cockatiellovers #tiel #bird #birdsofinstagram #pet #instapet #parrot #parrotlife #parrotsofinstagram #tommykydd #calopsita #birdstagram #nymphensittich #cutepets #insta_parrotcute #southafrica #prettylittleparrots #parrotlife #cutepetclub #jettseven #animallover
This little stealth ninja likes to silently climb out of his cage, creep quietly, and climb up onto my lap. For a birb who will bite hard if I try handle him, he knows he wants hooman touch and company. But strictly on his terms. He almost always takes me by surprise, but it makes me feel so loved ♥️ one day he’ll trust me enough for me to have him on my shoulder and walk around with him, but it’s worth the wait!

Mum, I don’t think I’m like this monkeys... mine fren tode me they eaten smol birbs like me. • Yes JettSeven, you’re right, they do eat cute birbs like you. I will protect you from the monkeys, don’t worry. • These vervet monkeys pass through our garden every morning and evening. There are currently 20-30 in the troop, from big dominant males, to tiny newborns who cling upside down on their mum’s tummies. They’re very entertaining, but not to be messed with. They play on my childrens’ outdoor play equipment and trampoline, eat the flowers in the garden, frolic and fight quite vigorously, then after about 30 minutes they move on to the next house. • If we’re not vigilant they walk brazenly into our home, and steal fruit, veges, eggs, bread... basically whatever they can find. They’ve even stolen lunch boxes which they know how to open. In South Africa we are in the hottest part of summer now, our doors and windows are open all the time, and we have to constantly be mindful that our birds could be taken by a monkey. They are extremely quiet, and can move through our home at lightening speed. It’s definitely never dull living here 🤔 . . . . . #Cockatiel #cockatiels #cockatiellife #cockatielsofinstagram #cockatiellovers #tiel #bird #birdsofinstagram #pet #instapet #parrot #parrotlife #parrotsofinstagram #tommykydd #calopsita #birdstagram #nymphensittich #cutepets #insta_parrotcute #southafrica #prettylittleparrots #parrotlife #cutepetclub #jettseven #animallover
I’m fairly certain that if things ever went to hell in a hand basket financially, TommyKydd would be sure to get a great acrobatic job in a circus and keep us comfortable for the rest of our lives ... . . . . . #Cockatiel #cockatiels #cockatiellife #cockatielsofinstagram #cockatiellovers #tiel #bird #birdsofinstagram #pet #instapet #parrot #parrotlife #parrotsofinstagram #tommykydd #calopsita #birdstagram #nymphensittich #cutepets #insta_parrotcute #southafrica #prettylittleparrots #parrotlife #cutepetclub #jettseven #animallover
JettSeven just LOVES Eli, whenever Eli holds his finger out with Jett in front of him, Jett sings him a very earnest, special song, then preens his eyebrows and eyelashes. Every.single.time. They have a beautiful relationship, and of course Eli feels incredibly privileged to be in such favour ♥️ . . . . . #Cockatiel #cockatiels #cockatiellife #cockatielsofinstagram #cockatiellovers #tiel #bird #birdsofinstagram #pet #instapet #parrot #parrotlife #parrotsofinstagram #tommykydd #calopsita #birdstagram #nymphensittich #cutepets #insta_parrotcute #southafrica #prettylittleparrots #parrotlife #cutepetclub #jettseven #animallover
TommyKydd has a squonk feather... and it’s REALLY bugging me! It’s been like that since Sunday, and he just isn’t preening it back into place. 🤷🏻‍♀️ My OCD is not coping 🤦‍♀️ . . . . . #Cockatiel #cockatiels #cockatiellife #cockatielsofinstagram #cockatiellovers #tiel #bird #birdsofinstagram #pet #instapet #parrot #parrotlife #parrotsofinstagram #tommykydd #calopsita #birdstagram #nymphensittich #cutepets #insta_parrotcute #southafrica #prettylittleparrots #parrotlife #cutepetclub #jettseven #animallover
“My dad took this picture of me while he was reading bedtime stories to my brother fiblings. I like adventure books, my favorites are written by Enid Blyton - my dad always makes me very excited to hear what’s going to happen next.” :: JettSeven . . . . . #Cockatiel #cockatiels #cockatiellife #cockatielsofinstagram #cockatiellovers #tiel #bird #birdsofinstagram #pet #instapet #parrot #parrotlife #parrotsofinstagram #tommykydd #calopsita #birdstagram #nymphensittich #cutepets #insta_parrotcute #southafrica #prettylittleparrots #parrotlife #cutepetclub #jettseven #animallover
TommyKydd has been eating corn flake cereal, which is big progress as he hasn’t wanted to eat anything other than seed! Every day we make up a plate of food for the birbs, with random alternatives to seed, and Jett is really good at eating a variety of food, but Tommy is still very attached to his old familiar diet. It’s been 3 months and we’ve only just added one thing to his diet, but I’ll just keep trying! . . . . . #Cockatiel #cockatiels #cockatiellife #cockatielsofinstagram #cockatiellovers #tiel #bird #birdsofinstagram #pet #instapet #parrot #parrotlife #parrotsofinstagram #tommykydd #calopsita #birdstagram #nymphensittich #cutepets #insta_parrotcute #southafrica #prettylittleparrots #parrotlife #cutepetclub #jettseven #animallover
As per my last post... Drivers Ed with JettSeven didn’t go so well today... I thought I’d start with getting him used to holding the steering wheel at 10 and 2, and to get a feel for the power steering... buttttttt... I still think he still has a ways to go. He may have some telltale signs of ADHD - he has to comment on EVERY person walking by... 😳 it’s like he thinks he owns the road or something 🤷🏻‍♀️ . . . . . #Cockatiel #cockatiels #cockatiellife #cockatielsofinstagram #cockatiellovers #tiel #bird #birdsofinstagram #pet #instapet #parrot #parrotlife #parrotsofinstagram #tommykydd #calopsita #birdstagram #nymphensittich #cutepets #insta_parrotcute #southafrica #prettylittleparrots #parrotlife #cutepetclub #jettseven #animallover
TommyKydd on the left and JettSeven on the right. My husband battles to tell the difference between them, but they have quite distinctive characteristics to me. • Tommy’s face is more eagle like, and on side view, his head is longer, his eyes look smaller and not as bright and there’s less plumage around them. His beak is a completely different shape. Lastly, we’re unsure if Jett will always have this greyed chest, for a long time I’ve thought he is grubby, his chest feathers took strain when we were hand feeding him. But now I’m wondering if that’s just his colouring. Perhaps a recessive lutino glitch in the genes? 🤷🏻‍♀️ I dunno! • The main thing is: we love our birb bois! 💙💙 . . #Cockatiel #cockatiels #cockatiellife #cockatielsofinstagram #cockatiellovers #tiel #bird #birdsofinstagram #pet #instapet #parrot #parrotlife #parrotsofinstagram #tommykydd #calopsita #birdstagram #nymphensittich #cutepets #insta_parrotcute #southafrica #prettylittleparrots #parrotlife #cutepetclub #jettseven #animallover
This is our fibling Lulu, our vet says she lost another life this weekend... • She came home yesterday after not being seen since Friday night, crying, and wouldn’t put weight on one back leg, my mumther was convinced it was broken cause it looked pretty squonk. The vet said she has a broken pelvis, lots of bruising, a fever and is dehydrated. So she stayed there overnight and they did lots of expensive tests and xrays. And then today they said she could come home! • She has to stay locked in the bathroom for 3 or 4 days, the vet said when they did xrays again, the fracture was gone!? Weird. • She’s so zen now, those pain meds are working a treat, and she’s loving her washing tub bed made for her by her hooman brother 🧡 . . #Cockatiel #cockatiels #cockatiellife #cockatielsofinstagram #cockatiellovers #tiel #bird #birdsofinstagram #pet #instapet #parrot #parrotlife #parrotsofinstagram #tommykydd #calopsita #birdstagram #nymphensittich #cutepets #insta_parrotcute #southafrica #prettylittleparrots #parrotlife #cutepetclub #jettseven #animallover
When I sings my fibling a song, I like to make sure we have good eye contact. It’s important also to occasionally straighten any eyelashes or eyebrow hairs which may be out of place 👍 . . . . #Cockatiel #cockatiels #cockatiellife #cockatielsofinstagram #cockatiellovers #tiel #bird #birdsofinstagram #pet #instapet #parrot #parrotlife #parrotsofinstagram #tommykydd #calopsita #birdstagram #nymphensittich #cutepets #insta_parrotcute #southafrica #prettylittleparrots #parrotlife #cutepetclub #jettseven #animallover
Habby good Monday mornimg everbirdy, I’m waiting to hear news from our vet about our sister Lulu (she’s a cat but we have an understanding) • My mom and dad are very worried about her, after disappearing for 2 days she came home, but was crying and wouldn’t put weight on her back leg. The vet says she has a fractured pelvis, a lot of bruising, a fever and is dehydrated. So she stayed there last night after they put her on a drip and made sure she wasn’t in any pain. • My parronts are a bit worried because her vet bill is already USD400 and it’s climbing. We are waiting to hear from the orthopedic vet about if and how they will be able to repair her pelvis 😔 • Our house is not the same without her, so we’re all quite anxious 😟 . . . . #Cockatiel #cockatiels #cockatiellife #cockatielsofinstagram #cockatiellovers #tiel #bird #birdsofinstagram #pet #instapet #parrot #parrotlife #parrotsofinstagram #tommykydd #calopsita #birdstagram #nymphensittich #cutepets #insta_parrotcute #southafrica #prettylittleparrots #parrotlife #cutepetclub #jettseven #animallover
Not doing well with the pellets with these birbs. Basically they’d rather starve. So I caved and gave them millet because I felt so guilty. TommyKydd has lived on millet and sunflower seeds only, and he’s 3, is there any hope I can adjust his diet? He’s healthy and happy, but I would prefer him to eat more variety... . . . . . #Cockatiel #cockatiels #cockatiellife #cockatielsofinstagram #cockatiellovers #tiel #bird #birdsofinstagram #pet #instapet #parrot #parrotlife #parrotsofinstagram #tommykydd #calopsita #birdstagram #nymphensittich #cutepets #insta_parrotcute #southafrica #prettylittleparrots #parrotlife #cutepetclub #jettseven #animallover
Please go and show @our_little_flock some love - beautiful Benny and his sister have gone through a lot recently, our hearts are breaking for their mom, we know how much it hurts us parronts when our babies are struggling, so we wanted to tell you that we love you and hope you recover fully soon ♥️ . . . . . #Cockatiel #cockatiels #cockatiellife #cockatielsofinstagram #cockatiellovers #tiel #bird #birdsofinstagram #pet #instapet #parrot #parrotlife #parrotsofinstagram #tommykydd #calopsita #birdstagram #nymphensittich #cutepets #insta_parrotcute #southafrica #prettylittleparrots #parrotlife #cutepetclub #jettseven #animallover
