We recently acquired a grey cockatiel that was my husbands when he was a child. It has gone through a few family members, and is now ours again. My husband first received this bird at about 8 years of age. He was not the first owner, and is now 32. This means that Pee Wee iS AT least 25 years old and is healthy and sweet as can be. Is this normal?

Hey, I'm thinking about buying a cockatiel but only a few weeks from now school begins. My problem is that how can I bond with my bird while going to school, should I buy a pair so that they couldn't be bored, please answer.

    Hey joseph, when you say you're going 2 school, I don't know if that means boarding school or not, but I have just got a dear little bird, I've her out in the morning, on my shoulder, getting myself ready 4 work, put her outside, making sure her cage is wind protected on 3 sides, the butcher birds visit her during the day, when I come home, she sits on my shoulder chewing at my necklace or earrings, combs my eyelashes, what a hoot, bought a small cane basket from the opp shop that she's happily chewing 2 pieces, so buy your birds, they'l b fine and get the love and enjoyment out of them, my wee bird is a blessing' am so happy I have her as my companion. Take care Joseph

I would like to correct a bit of information. Cockatiels are NOISY! I have one and he enjoys screeching when he's lonely. He also sings when he is content. Of course, females are rarely vocal.

I had a female lutino cockatiels for 15 years and my "yellowbird" was a sweety. I do miss her very much, but I thank God for those 15 years.

I bought a cockatiel about a month ago. I named him Hercules because he was chasing away the other cockatiels to nibble on my finger through the pet store cage. He was a little shy at first with the hissing and biting. Now every morning and night I let him out of his cage and he follows me all over my apartment. It is sooo cute to watch him run as fast as his little feet will take him to chase after me when I'm getting ready in the mornings. He is right behind me the whole step of the way, he wont let me out of eye sight. He shows more loyalty than most dogs! Great companion!

I have a soon to be 18 year old grey tiel named Sydney a/k/a Bootsy Sugarman.
He has never been docile as described on this site although he was about 2 yrs old when I got him. He does not talk which is okay cos hey I don't fly. I love him dearly and enjoy his cranky ways. Tiels rule the parrot world !

Just to let you know we have a cockatiel named "Thomas". He is one of the family and talks to us everyday. Thomas is 21 yrs of age and still going strong. His favourite song is Whistling Dixie. He says things very clear..... Come to dad, theres a clever tom, come on then, want ya dinner, bit of biscuit, and he wolf whistles too. He is just great! and we love him. Gary

Hi, I have a beautiful white faced cockatiel who I have named Romeo. At just 5 months of age he can say Hello, pretty bird and Romeo Romeo. He is currently learning the "where art thou romeo" part of Romeo and Juliet. He also can whistle the entire theme song from the Andy Griffin show and at Christmas learned Jingle Bells in just one day. I really don't recommend Christmas carols because by Feb. it does get a little old. He has also learned to bark like our Chihuahua's and laugh like myself. I am Romeo's second owner as the first owner had to give him up just after he purchased him because of an irate landlord who hated birds. I can't imagine why because Romeo is a very polite bird and does not scream or try to annoy anyone. I put his cage right next to my 55 gal. fish tank and he spends hours watching those fish "fly" through the water. By far he is the best bird that I have ever had in my family.
