The cockatiel is a highly social and intelligent bird that will want to spend as much time with its human flockmates as possible. Cockatiels want nothing more than to whistle and play and ride on your shoulder…if you care for them & train them to be.

Seven inches in lenght

Fifteen to twenty years with proper care.

Specialized pelleted diets are highly recommended and should consist of 60%-70% of the diet. If your bird is used to a seed diet, convert to pellets gradually; fresh pellets or seeds and fresh, clean, chlorine free water should always be available.

Give fresh fruits and vegetables daily; such as apple slices, grated carrots, raw broccoli and green leafy vegetables. Discard uneaten food before it spoils; finches appreciate quality and variety in their food.

A cage approximately 24” W x 24” D x 24” H, with metal bars spaced no greater than 5/8” apart, makes a good home for your parakeet; as with all animals, it is best to provide the largest habitat possible.

Perches should be at least 4” long and ½” in diameter; a variety of perch sizes and materials to exercise feet and help prevent arthritis is recommended. A metal grate over the droppings tray will keep the bird away from droppings; line the droppings tray with cage paper or appropriate substrate for easier cleaning. To avoid contamination, do not place food or water containers under perches. Ideal perch is one that the cockatiel can wrap its foot ¾ of the way around.

Provide filtered, chlorine-free, lukewarm water regularly for bathing and remove the water when done; as an alternative, mist the bird with water or a grooming spray. Nails should be trimmed by a qualified person to prevent injury to the bird.

Clean and disinfect the cage and perches regularly; replace substrate or cage liner weekly or more often if needed; replace food and water daily.

Replace perches, dishes and toys when worn or damaged. Always wash your hands after touching your bird and cage.

Birds acclimate well to average household temperatures; be cautious of extreme temperature change; cage should be placed off the floor in an area that is well-lit and away from drafts.

Cockatiels are fairly easy to mate, given a few simple conditions. The cage needs to be big enough, the room temperature should not be too cold (as a matter of course it should never be too cold, or a draft can give your birds a respiratory infection), about 70-80 degrees Fahrenheit, and a nesting box must be present. Unusual situations sometimes arise with breeding behavior.

Nest box should be 12x12.

Females will lay within 3 weeks of mating. Clutch size is 4-6. Incubation is around 20 days.

Babies should be left with parents for 2 weeks then be pulled to be handfed so that they will be friendly birds.

ockatiels love to chew!! Provide them with plenty of shreddable toys made from palm and rafia strips, twig balls and safe, vegetable tanned leather strips. They love wooden toys just like the big birds when they are appropriately sized.

Most cockatiels love to bathe. It removes debris from the feathers and keeps their skin from becoming dry and itchy.

Your cockatiel will need 10-12 hours of undisturbed sleep every night. Unfortunately, most cockatiels, at one point or another, experience episodes of terror in their cage referred to as “night frights
