Live birds available only in Petco stores. Selection varies by store. Check your local store for availability.
Cockatiels are terrific companions with lots of personality. They also happen to be an easy bird to care for, making them even more desirable. Their endless affection facilitates their natural ability to bond with their pet parents. Cockatiels are extremely social and thrive on interaction. They love to play with toys and can be very flirtatious. It's not uncommon to hear a wolf whistle as you walk by! Providing them with lots of toys will serve as a distraction when you are not available to play. Their habitat should be at least 18" x 24" and a playpen is a great way to allow them time outside of their habitat to have fun and interact with you!
