Bad Habits are very hard to brake once they have got away with it.!!! Cockatiel's are chewers, get the bird some apple limbs, plum, (no cherry wood) that are known not to have been sprayed or anything you can get the bird to chew on. The trick is for you to not let them get away with it , you half to be vigilant about it , show them , tell them, scold them but be sure to Praise them on good behavior, do not reward bad behavior, cage lock the bird for time outs for bad behavior... good luck !! <:0}

Yes but add some sugar or something so you do not starve them. You can look up on line how much sugar to add.

Absolutely! Mealworms are a great source of nutrition of most species of birds, especially robins and wrens.

Hi Andrew.
Hang the feeder approximately 5 feet above the ground, Make sure there is no foliage underneath that would encourage unwelcome guests, like mice, squirrels and even cats, to feed on the sugar water. If you wish to hang multiple hummingbird feeders, locate the feeders at least 10 to 12 feet apart.2.

Hello, Mary -

You can find a recipe for making nectar to put in a humming bird feeder on the Hummingbird Society web site:

The information states "No red food coloring!"

Best wishes.
