I have had Peter, a grey cockatiel, for 12 years now. He is a well-natured, very calm bird. However, fully taming him has been a challenge, partly because he had a partner up until 3 years ago. Peter has discovered a love lately. He loves sailing. We live on board our 30 ft. sailboat during the summer for approximately 10 weeks. Now I know why pirates carried parrots. My cockatiel is a hoot on board a boat. Peter flourished, he whistled contently, started imitating Terns. I was hoping he would mock a loon, but that did not happen. His plumage improved immensely due to the humidity and different weather. He was outdoors underneath the dodger all day, except for rainy periods and during our voyages. He slept inside the cabin at night. We would often be approached by other boaters on their dinghies wondering where the "unnatural" bird sounds were coming from. Peter has his way of complaining when we sail in rough weather he screams and screeches. When the conditions improved, he would start his happy whistle. He is going to be sailing with us every year. I could not stand to leave him home alone and only having someone to come in daily to care for him.

A grey cockateil bird flew in through my car door when I was outside and I didnt notice him until I got home. Ive only had him for a day and it surprised me that he can sing and whistle and say little phrases, such as Hey and good boy and come here. He also makes the cutest noise by putting his beak out and then in again. Im not really sure of how to take care of him just yet, but Im going to go to Petsmart tommorow and buy him some toy-like things.

I own a lutino (white and yellow) cockatiel that is very cute, she loves my company and spends lots of time out the cage on my shoulder, my brother also has a male cinnamon pied that is equally as nice we plan on breeding them when they are older thats how much we love this species!
flicky my brothers is only 6 mounths and is showing signs of the talking ability as he mimics my dogs squeeky toy!
I would recommend them to anyone intrested in cockatoos as cockateils are similar in looks and personality but cockatoos are harder to look after

These birds are very loving and kind.Although these birds can have only one handler they are usually good with other people.There is one thing that you need to do though, when
you take your bird a bath dont use soap or baby wipes. when your bird starts to itch a lot your bird probably has a kind of lice.
