I have been looking and calling all over and I have become very discouraged and need some help! My current female cockatiel recently had her parakeet companion die of old age. They were very close and she is now very sad. I have been reading and it seems that a cockatiel would make the best companion for another cockatiel. I am located in Little Rock, Arkansas and have no problem traveling around 3 hours. I was wondering if anyone knew of, or had any experience with a bird breeder in Arkansas that sells hand raised cockatiels. All the places I have called or emailed keep saying the email can not be found or the number has been disconnected! Please help!!
