My cockatiel is coming up to 33 years old! He is fit and well. He loves whistling first thing in the morning, he also loves eating bread.

I have a pearl cockatiel who is 2 months old. He was pulled from the nesting box a little early but has become a very amazing bird. He just learned the wolf whistle and we think hes a male but it wouldnt matter anyway. His name is Spike. I have had a lot of different pets and he is by far one of my favorites! Very gentle natured and sometimes clingy, he takes showers with me and always sits on my shoulder. He is such a great pet that 3 of my neighbors went out and bought a cockatiel also after playing with spike! I definitely recommend this bird to anyone! I bet you will get attached very quick.

I bought a cockatiel a few weeks ago. I'm not sure of the age but she is still young, her name is Tui. I wasn't planning on getting her because I was going to get a parakeet, but when i got to the pet store I saw a cage full of cockatiels and there was one (Tui) running around, climbing up the cage, etc. She was just very hiper, lol. When we got her home she went in to her cage and sat at the bottom, but a few hours later she was climbing up the cage and whistling a little bit. I have found out that she loves music. Everytime i put music on she sits and whistles. Now three weeks later she has bonded a lot with me and has learned to say "pretty girl". Hopefully she will have a long happy life.

I'm about to get a one year old hand-reared grey cockatiel! I've decided to call him D.J. (Dr Jeckle). I can't wait!

I had a grey male cockatiel that was 31 years old "Chico". He passed away last Saturday Dec, 1 2007 very peacefully with me by his side. He would have been 32 in the spring. I've had him since he was 1, and I was 10. He was the best bird I've ever owned. We never clipped his wings and he had full flight his entire life. For many years, I left his cage door open so he could have the freedom he deserved. Usually, he would stay in the cage unless someone was home. He didn't come out of his cage the past few years but he still talked sometimes and seemed quite happy.

Chico was the best animal friend and I will miss him so very much.

Just read about the oldest recorded age of a cockatiel in captivity. I wanted to share that I have a little birdee guy, his name is Kolohe. Kolohe will be 30 years old this August 20, 2007.

I have four cockatiels, each a different variety. A pearl: Luner, grey: Rosco, pied: Rocky, and fallow: Winter,(white, but not albino). I LOVE my cockatiels! They are so affectionate, they sing and whistle, and Rosco knows tricks. I know that I will always have at least one cockatiel of my own. The first three are mine, they're the males, the female is my sister's. I love taking the boys in the shower with me, they love playing in the spray! I highly recommend a cockatiel as a pet for almost anyone.

In doing research to try and determine how long grey cockatiels live, I came across this webpage and it was very resourceful. My mom passed away last April leaving me with her grey, named "Birdy". She got Birdy when I went to college in the fall of 1979, so Birdy is at least 28 yrs old and still going strong, though he is losing feathers around his neck. I am however looking for a home for him, as I am going back to graduate school and won't be able to take him with me. We live in Clearwater, Florida and only will part with him if I can find a good home for him. I don't think my Mom ever expected him to live this long.
