The Assistant Chef

Cockatiels are very confident by nature.

If it looks interesting, they jump in and give it a go.

Whether they are invited to or not.

Recently The Small Tree (aka a certain avian’s Grandma) hosted a waffle brunch.

She got more, um, help than she bargained for in the preparations.

  1. Love Pearl! I agree with the statement about Cockatiels. They do not ask for permission, they just do it! Mr. Tibbs gives me a 5 second head start to read his mind, then afterwards he just jumps right in, lol.

      • I love Pearl. He is so adorable. I have a little female pied tiel he might like. Mine eats every meal with us whether invited or not. I have 10 birds, but only my tiel lives in the main house, the rest are in their own sun room. But Bandit is number one and sure to let everyone know she is ready, willing and able to eat what you put in front of her.

        • I love Pearl too, Marilyn! 🙂 Bandit sounds like a doll – I am sure Pearl would like her very much – so long as there are enough delicious victuals to share….!
