I bought a young, grey, male cockatiel last tuesday. His name is Osha. Everytime i get near him he hisses. I can usually get him on my finger and pet him, but not for very long because he will take off and fly around my room screeching, his wings are trimmed so that he can hover. Sometimes he seems to be in a good mood but most of the time he just bites you put your finger anywhere near him. Will my dear little Osha ever bond with me?

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 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 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 !

Hi,
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

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.
