When you are born covered in feathers, “ruling the roost” is a pretty big deal.

In short, you want to be the one doing it.

There are many time-honored methods to accomplish this goal, but one of the finest is also the simplest. It is called “cuteness.”

When you are the cutest flock member, you don’t have to be at the top of the cockatiel flock (literally or figuratively) to rule the roost.

You just have to show up. “Cuteness” will do the rest.

Step 1: Show up. For extra credit, show up and then perch on the previous “flock alpha.” Like so.

Step 2: Keep sitting there. Look very cute.

Step 3: Close your eyes (while still looking very cute). Proceed to take a restful nap. This solidifies you as the official “roost ruler” (a technical term).

Based on these pics, who do you think our little flock’s official “roost ruler” is?

And we love it. And you tell us you love it. Yay!

But if you would like to “pass the waffles” (or the mealworms, or the salmon) and gift your favorite flock member with a tasty treat, our beaks are wide open and grateful! 🙂
