From one loving home to another...Teika
and Beaker will soon be making a long journey to join Apache, Neo, Silver and Taxi to become part of the flock.
Their Mom loves them very much and wants to find a good home for her birds. A greuling
college schedule has demanded much of her time. Too much, she feels, to be fair to her beloved birds. Though it
breaks her heart to part with them, she feels its in Teika and Beaker's best interest to live in a home where they will get
a lot of attention since her schedule won't change anytime soon. If that's not love, what is?
Through a helpful friend, the Tail Feathers posting board, this website, and
perhaps fate, Teika and Beaker's Mom found me and my "four". Though two states and many miles seperate us,
Teika & Beaker will join my flock soon. My family and I are anxiously anticipating their arrival and we promise
to love them unconditionally!
UPDATE! SCHEDULED ARRIVAL DATE: JUNE 4, 2005!
This is Teika. She is a cinnamon, whiteface, pearl.
Isn't she lovely? I understand that she and her Mom are very bonded and that Teika is slow to warm up to others. Since,
she prefers women, a new "Mom" is ideal for her.
Despite her shy exterior, she has many talents and cute traits!
She can talk, which is fairly uncommon in female tiels. Her vocabulary includes "Teika", her Mom's name, "Hello" and
the first few bars to the song "I'm So Pretty" from West Side Story! Because she's fond of that song, I chose "I'm So
Pretty for their page midi! Teika also likes to dance to rap music and loves the theme song to "Friends". She's a "Momma's
Girl" and loves to snuggle. AWWW! She'll have no problem getting her snuggles here!
Teika is about three years old, which is quite young yet. She'll have a long, happy
life ahead of her.
Beaker is an 18 month old male. I am told he is a standard gray, but judging by
his pictures, I suspect he could actually be a cinnamon like my male Silver. They appear as though they could be twins! Beaker's
Mom says he is a bit darker than Silver appears in the pictures on my website, but my camera's flash has a tendency
to wash out my birds colors. We shall see!
Beaker, I am told, likes to have his head scratched, but would much rather be off exploring
and having cockatiel fun over cuddling. He's outgoing and loves new things; a very social young tiel.
He also likes to ogle his own reflection in a mirror which inspired his Mom to start singing "I'm So Pretty". It was
her hope that Beaker would learn the words, but to her suprise, Teika learned them instead! I suspect Beaker will have no
problem settling in. Though Beaker's Mom has said he prefers the company of men, I suspect Beaker and my daughter will
make fast friends. Kirsten will provide lots of interraction and playtime for the curious and social Beaker! Expect
pictures soon of Beaker on the famous "Barbie Tiel Jeep" Haha!
