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 !

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.

My dad saved a cockatiel from being eaten by an eagle. He brought it home, we healed him, and now he is back to normal. He is funny because I have him with a parakeet and he always does his mating call to it and the parakeet gets mad and pecks him. The bad thing is that the parakeet is a male. When I try to get my cockatiel he runs and starts breathing hard and starts hissing. I don't know if his first owner was mean to him. I can't tame him or hand feed him. I hope our friendship gets better.

I have two a latino female and a pied male. The male I've had since dec 1 and he is very agressive. He also bites to bring the blood. He was older than the female when I got him. If I try every day with a piece of fruit to get him in my hand without biting will I eventually gain his trust. My female is very loving and gentle. It breaks my heart to think I can't love on him like I do her. He also has like a gray band of color around his eyes like a mask, is there many out there like that. Another thing I noticed when I got him from the pet store is he had no tail feathers. I asked and they said he was shipped like that, do I need to be concerned. The owner of the pet store said he has all his colors in so shouldn't he have tail feathers.
