Nugget's Info...

Nugget's Story...
“Nugget” is a 10 year old male grey cockatiel. He has never met a mirror he did not like! If a toy has a mirror he is really happy. He has mirrors on his play stand too! Nugget is a very happy bird; he has a very pretty sound in the morning at wake up time. Nugget is inquisitive and likes to explore but his happiest place is his play stand or cage. He has a variety of foods available to him as pellets and seed and he is beginning to try a few fresh foods. He enjoys the Zupreem fruit pellets while on his play stand. Nugget will only step up onto one finger and not multiple fingers. His favorite toys have mirrors and he is taking a liking to string toys and a new plastic colorful one with a bell on the bottom. He is around other birds in his foster home but has not been caged with them, but prior to foster with FPR, he was an only bird. He loves for you to talk to him and responds. Nugget is looking for his forever home and would like you to consider him for his many remaining years!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Nugget, a Tampa Cockatiel was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Cockatiel for sale in Tampa, or seeking a Cockatiel from a breeder in Tampa.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Tampa already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Tampa breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Cockatiel breeders who help with Cockatiel rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Tampa paves the way for another one to be saved.
