Depends on which tiel! I got Cinny as a biting screaming super scared youngster. He HATED me. A few weeks later I got his wings clipped and all of the sudden everything changed. He trusted me more than ever after a few days of working with him I felt so bonded to him. But our bond wasn't complete until one day, Cinny bowed his head down while I was writing and pressed it against my finger. At first I didn't know what he was doing. This was the first time I had seen a cockatiel ask for scritches. It was so sweet!

Sugar was my next tiel. I got her as a 1 year old breeder. So she wasn't tame at all. I didn't ever really make an effort to tame her. In fact, I wouldn't label her as tame even now. She trusts me so much, but she not, tame. Hope that makes sense. Now she'll fly to me while I'm reading or typing. She loves sitting on my head or on my shoulder. Sometimes she'll step up if she's in a good mood and lately she's started letting me give her scritches. Smile

Pearl was tame from day one 1. He's Cinny and Sugar's baby so I raised him from and egg and ever since I was old enough, I would get him out and play with him so he never really wasn't tame. Although now he's just SUPER grumpy and doesn't like to be held or pet anymore unless he invites himself. But I guess he is still tame in a way.

I got Faith from a free flight home. So she had plenty of interaction with people before I got her, but wasn't really a loved pet in her previous home (they never even named her Sad ) But from day one she let me and my family hold her and pet her, she was just a little unsure about it.

All my birds are full flighted now so if they're tame, it depends on how you think of tame. They all have the freedom to fly away from me if they choose, and sometimes they choose to and sometimes they choose not too. So I wouldn't usually describe any of them as tame, more like I'm part of their flock and they trust me. Smile

Wow! They are an interesting group aren't they.Laughing At least they trust you.

Shakes was handfed, so he was the sweetes thing ever. I'm letting his wings grow...although he never even uses them.:LOL: At the petstore he was called Clumsy and he really lived up to it.
