Pet Cockatiels


Cockatiels are generally regarded as good pets having a "sweet" demeanor, though this is by no means a guarantee. Like most domesticated birds, the manner in which the animal is raised, handled, and kept has a profound effect on the temperament of the animal. Some birds are quite gregarious and sociable while others can be shy, retreating to the back of the cage when an unfamiliar figure appears.

Generally, well-socialized birds are gentle and friendly. Some cockatiels enjoy physical contact, lending themselves well to domestication. Many cockatiel owners develop regular bonding rituals with their animals, engaging in preening, scratching, and even petting.

Cockatiels do have a reputation for being quite noisy and demanding of the attention of their owners on a regular basis. Their vocalizations range from ginger cheeps to piercing cries.

Cockatiels don't necessarily make good pets for young children because they startle easily with loud or unexpected sounds and can bite out of fear of sudden hand movements near and above their heads.
