Krista and Apollo:Just wanted to give you an update on my handsome boy. He is learning to step up reliably and is becoming more comfortable outside his cage. He is a joy and has started picking up tunes from the radio and tv. We had a few hours of play time in his little bird safe play area this afternoon. He even attempted to take a bath on his own. I hope you are doing Well!
Loki,is doing great! He is a natural little part of the family. We travelled up to Jacksonville for Easter weekend to visit the grandparents and both Jade and Loki got a little sleepy.

These are pictures of cockatiels that people purchased from Shady Oaks Cockatiels. We at Shady Oaks Cockatiels pride ourselves in socializing with all tiels whether show or pet quality. We visit with the birds daily and often sit in the flights, and at times have 10 tiels fighting for my attention.
The birds in the pictures range from 12 to 14 weeks and the tiel sitting on the lady's shoulder was well over a year old. Some of the comments I receive are:
"A picture is worth a thousand words. Thanks Susan she's great with the kids" "Clementine is the sweetest...you gave us a wonderful pet" "Mom feeding the spoiled kids"
Pigwidgeon, Happy boy out in the lanai with us... Mango enjoying some loving... From the new owners of Rocky-- Hi! Just thought you might like to know that Rocky is doing great! He is happy, eating, drinking and playing. I swear he thinks he is a puppy. He loves companionship so much, wants to be with us every second! He is a very special little birdy baby. What a personality he has! We just love him so much💕
Kevin is fantastic. We are still on vacation in The Keys, and he is enjoying himself a good deal. He's done a very nice job with my training. Thus far, he's taught me when he wants to be out and about, when he wants the food I'm eating, and how to properly 'scritch' his nape. In return he rewards me with grooming, whistles, and never bites or screams. He's a very bold little man, and I've not seen a tiel that hops around with such authority. I love that about him. I searched many a sites, and organization and was very fortunate to have found Susan. Her aviary is exceptional in design and cleanliness. Certainly a breeder of merit, her type of tiel is far superior to those I've encountered with business breeders and pet stores. She was honest and endearing to buy from; I can't imagine having a better tiel or experience than what was provided.
Dan has also decided to purchase a flight cage from Corners Limited as a result of his visit to our aviary.
Santa found Shady Oaks Cockatiels and brought Clementine to Charlene Christmas Day!!!!! Joan R past President of the ACS came to visit Shady Oaks, the birds just love having people visit especially when they wear a red blouse.
This is Lisa Marie enjoying the afternoon with her cockatiel Lee and Callie the kitty. Callie has been known to help mom find Lee if he decides to run off on his own. Lee also flaps his wings when mom sings if your happy flap your wings and whistles the song from the Andy of Mayberry song. Lisa recently wrote to me "I love having him around He is very entertaining he is a quick learner can't wait to see what he learns next! Ha.
Jessicahas a new friend, Tonya wrote, "Sweetie did great, she loves her cage already. She is checking out the toys, ate a bit and drinking. Thank you for a great bird".
Sophia and Devon now have two lutino hens. They drive from Tallahassee to Sebastian for these sweet girls. She writes, "Thank you very much!! You have an amazing home. I aspire to own that many birds one day ".
I just wanted to send word how much we adore the birds. They are awesome. The adopted fellow is not as cuddly but he is friendly. He doesn’t bite or try to like he did when he first came to us. The bird you raised is so sweet.... Loves to sit on my son and Mom. He is a great whistler and talker. They are great companions. Thank you for all you did to raise them
Hi Susan, Just as we thought, Charlie is Perfect according to the vet :) he was very impressed with his coloring and said we certainly did our homework in choosing him. Had his wings clipped, talons trimmed, checked his poop no parasites. All good and we have a happy Charlie who is now walking all over us! He's started chattering also which is super cute.
Seeing these babies with their new families make my heart melt. I breed for show quality cockatiels however you can see by the pictures that I also have babies that also make great pets. Once a baby is sold we become a family most send updates like the ones above.
This is Jack and his new baby. His mom on the right bought this baby for her son. When I asked her if she wanted to hold it she said "NO" as she backed away. "I am buying the bird and that is all". A week later look at her. She loves the baby!
Still hard to believe we have a bird in the house again. Percy is certainly one of the most laid back, sweetest birds I've ever seen. We all are very impressed with him." The girls on the right have two of my babies. Their mom says they are "addicted"!
Sunny Girl is the sweetest baby ever. Her and her boyfriend Spike are just Beautiful!!! I had the pleasure of visiting Sue and seeing all her beautiful birds.... and I do mean ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!!! I couldn’t be happier. This is why I love to sell my birds as pets this is Ethel's aviary, love it!!!!!!
