KEEPING AND CARE OF cockatiels: As budgerigars, cockatiels are most frequently kept as pets.
They belong to a medium-sized class of parrots. It is very easy to tame them and teach them to imitate human speech. In order to become as tame as possible and attached to the owner, it is best to keep them separate. Young birds are easier to tame and they start to speak earlier.
They do not demand very much keeping space. A cage of medium size is enough for their keeping.
They like being free so that they can spend time on the owner's shoulder. Tame birds spend most of their time outside the cage. They enter the cage only to feed themselves and drink water. When they are outside the cage, it is advisable for one of the family members to watch them because they may hurt themselves or cause damage by nibbling on the furniture.
The cage should be kept out of draught winds or a heat source, so that the bird is provided with normal life conditions.

COCKATIEL DIET: Speckled sunflower is the basic component of the mixture consisting of millet seeds, canary seeds and seeds of saffron, shelled oats, hemp, buckweat and flax seeds. Cuttle-bone and minerals have to always be available. Apples and carrots are their favourite sweets
including blade, chicory and grapes. They like pecking into our plates, which should be avoided as it could lead to gastric problems caused by inadequate food intake.

BREEDING and COCKATIEL NESTING: Breeding of cockatiel birds is easy. The breeding season lasts throughout the entire year. They breed also in winter if the temperature does not fall below 12C (54F). Cockatiel birds are inoffensive to other birds. It is possible to keep even more pairs together or even with other species of parrots.They can breed in aviaries or in larger cages. The nest should be placed on the upper part of the aviary or cage and the inside filled with large wood chips.
