Cockatiels are talented whistlers, male cockatiels in particular are known for their whistle serenades! They are quite active and social and enjoy being with other cockatiels, they make great additions to an aviary !

Getting a handraised cockatiel at 12 weeks old has multiple benefits. Firstly, our handraised birds are already social and friendly and used to human interaction. Moreover, they're easier to train as they're already accustomed to being handled and will usually respond well to training commands. Secondly, handraised cockatiels are healthier and have a longer lifespan than birds that have not been handraised. This is because the breeding and handraising process ensures that the bird is healthy and well-cared for from a young age (Cockatiels are hardy birds with few health problems, providing they are properly looked after. They can live for about 15 years.) Thirdly, handraised cockatiels are known for their affectionate nature. They love attention and will often seek out human interaction, making them wonderful companions. Lastly, cockatiels are intelligent birds that can be trained to do various tricks and learn behaviors. With handraised cockatiels, this process tends to be even easier and more successful. However, owning a pet, such as a cockatiel, requires considerable responsibility, care, and attention. It's important to carefully consider all the factors before deciding to bring a pet into your home.

Cockatiels should be fed a cockatiel seed mix and receive a regular supply of fresh fruits and vegetables. They love corn on the cob, which is high in Vitamin A. Celery, pumpkin, carrots, beans, apples and peas are all suitable. Native foods such as eucalyptus, wattle, casuarina, bottlebrush and melaleuca are also enjoyed by Cockatiels. They should have access to water at all times.
