L came over with Sid yesterday and dropped him off. He's a normal grey 'tiel. She told us all about him, what he likes, doesn't like, etc. He's not hand-friendly, so it may be a long while before he can come out of his cage and onto our hands, if ever. He loves carrots, but last night, we discovered that he loves corn even more =)
However, we also noticed some bald spots on various parts of his body, so he's been plucking. Cockatiels don't pluck their feathers unless there is an underlying medical reason for it. He's in quarantine right now. We're bringing him to Night Owl for a checkup.

Husband Guy made an appointment for Thursday morning at 1000h at Night Owl for Sid.
