For those of you who remember us bringing home a 2 week old, syringe feeding, baby Cockatiel back in January,…
Yes, Captain Jack is still alive, healthy and happy. And I think..maybe.. He’s a she. Duh duh duhhhh..
He’s six month’s old now and he’s molting:
The yellow striped feathers are growing back in (the boys are supposed to lose those when they molt.) But the yellow on his/her face has spread and gotten brighter (which it’s not supposed to do if it’s a girl.) I’m also pretty sure Captain Jack is a “cinnamon” — meaning not a Normal Gray. Whichever, I love his/her colorings and we’re still happy to have Captain Jack. Or, Captain Jaq. Or whatever.
