    Well I am pleased to report that my baby cockatiel, Peanut, is doing really well. She is just over 5 weeks old now and getting stuck into weaning mode.
    It is thanks to a lot of wonderful advice on this forum that we have managed to hand rear Peanut to this stage and she is developing fabulously.
    I've ordered her cage so probably from next week she can sit in that during the day and just go into her brooder at night to sleep until she is fully weaned. She is such a little character so I can't wait for her to be able to sit with us in the lounge.:)

    I have put some early photos of Peanut in my profile. I took one last night on my phone so I will try to upload that, it might not be very clear though :)

    Oh. My. God! If that isn't the cutest thing I have seen in a long time. But then I love cockatiels!

    I am glad that Peanut is doing so well.

    Thanks. She loves peas and sweetcorn too. I have tried her with banana but she tends to just flick that everywhere :lol:

    I must admit, I can't belive we have managed it. I am totally inexperienced and was never expecting any of my adult 'tiel's eggs to hatch. They have been persistent layers for quite some time now but until Peanut, they never had a successful clutch. It is a shame they rejected her but it does mean that Peanut is totally tame and charming around people.
