Tinker, at 23 Days Old

Tinker's Story is Below

That's Tinker's "cuddle" buddy in the corner.  I wanted to get a picture of Tinker preening his buddy, but of course, that didn't work out :).

Tinker is stretching his wings.

"Whaaat?  I didn't do anything....did I?"

"Peek-a-boo!"

"Let me outta here!"

"Just struttin' my stuff"

Tinker's Story

Tinker, a normal Grey Cockatiel,  hatched on May 15, 2001, and became a member of our family when he was seven days old.  Tinker was the third born in the clutch.  Mom and Dad Tiel had two more babies after Tinker was hatched, and they were concentrating on feeding the new hatchlings and weren't feeding the three older siblings.  So, Tinker and the two older chicks were pulled from their parents to be hand fed.  Tinker's two oldest siblings stayed with their human daddy, my son, and Tinker came to live with my husband and me.  

Three days after Tinker came to live with us, while my son was gone away from the house, his poodle somehow was able to get to the two newest siblings and the 5 eggs that mom and dad tiel had in the nest.  That was a real tragedy.  We were very thankful that the three baby chicks had been pulled and were not a part of the tragedy! 

Tinker has only been with us for a short time, but we have already developed an everlasting bond.  I am trying very hard not to spoil Tinker too much, but that is a difficult task for me :).

Tinker's Mommy,

My wonderful friends at Tiel Talk (a Birds 'n Ways chat board)  helped with suggestions for names for Tinker.  Then I had this great idea to have a poll to vote for which name we should use for our new baby tiel.  

Here are the results of the poll and the suggested names...
