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.

i purchased a three year old male. he has a wonderful personality when he is happy, on the other hand not so nice when angry. im sure he was mistreatd before we got him because he was aggressive with my wife & I, so much so we almost took him back. with a little patience he is now personality plus. he says good morning and hi im cody, also some words i wont print. he eats what we eat when we eat but in moderation. when i come home he says michael and jumps on my hand or shoulder and gives gentle kisses. the best 50 bucks we ever spent. he also whistles opera tunes before bed and first thing in the morning. so have patience with your troubled bird, they do change with love and affection.

I have a cockatiel named Baby, he is 27 years old and loves dogs! I think that's what keeps him going. He absolutely loves walking around on the floor with them. I had a dog when I was younger that would let him ride around the house on her back! It has always been a bit of a challenge to train new dogs to cope with having a bird walking around on the floor with them, but Baby always seemed to be very relaxed around any dog with his whistling and making kissie noises at them.

Hi my name is Ana. i have a 6 month old lutino cockatiel named chi chi and she has a harness and leash. she is a little crabby but i've gotten used to her bites. she loves to throw seeds at people. everytime i come home from school, i'm 11, i have to clean up where she threw the food. she is watching me type and is preening her feathers on my shoulder at this very minute. she is potty trained and is a little selfish. she gives me kisses sometimes. she is a little upset because we recently moved in with my uncle frank who has a son named ryan that is scared of chi chi. she never gets to come out when ryan is home. she doesn't have her wings clipped just yet but she will eventually. sometimes when i get home from school she screeches for attention. her little red cheeks and her yellow mowhawk is just simply irresistible. i got her for my birthday in october.

I just saw "Loki" because I was looking up the average age for a cockatiel. I have one ("Woody") thats 30 years old, and I have owned it for all 30 years. He is still as spunky today as he was 30 years ago.

My Zoe is 3 yrs old. I got her as soon as she could leave her nest. She REALLY believes I am her mom! She will eat anything out of my mouth. If I just give her something in my hand, she will tear it apart mostly, but out of my mouth she eats every morsel! She is so funny. She loves to be on my shoulder WHEREVER I go. Since her wings STAY clipped she goes everywhere with me except to church. She is too much of a distraction there! I tried letting her wings grow out ONCE! Found out she got a real attitude with wings - one I didn't like! She preens me and likes to eat whatever I do. Chicken, mashed potatoes & gravy, pizza, cookies, ice cream, eggs & hashbrowns, crackers. She likes people food more than bird seeds.
I, too, highly recommend a cockatiel as a loyal and loving pet!

I have a gorgeous 2 year old white faced cockatiel called Mokey. Although nearly losing him to a stroke at the age of 1 (most likely due to his genetic make up) he has grown up to be a spunky boy who adores kisses and loves wolf whistling to whoever wants to listen!

I just got a grey cockatiel about 4 days ago. Shes so sweet. She's only 4 weeks old and she is adorable. I named her Dixie. I am looking forward to all the good times i am going to get with her. I cant wait for her to whistle, talk and all that good stuff. At first i was kinda nervous with her because she was so small and she would hiss at me. Now she is calming down and doesn't hiss very often. Seh will play with the keys on my keyboard and also play with my dogs. She is so adorable. I love her so much. Anyone considering a bird should get a cockatiel.
