Hand reared baby cockatiels: A baby Cockatiel is a delicate little creature
and to hand rear one takes a lot of care and nurturing.
The hand rearing process begins at about 3 weeks.
We hand feed the baby a specialized formula five times throughout the day.
This includes early morning and late night.
Their feathers are cleaned after each feed and their bedding is cleaned at least twice a day.
This is to ensure a healthy environment for their growth and well being. And this is only the beginning.
As they grow, they need handling and human interaction throughout the day which accustoms them to being part of the family.
Above is a brief description of the time and effort it takes to hand rear and tame a baby cockatiel.
It is a very dedicated six-week period for our hand rearers who love what they do.
