Also known as the miniature cockatoo. The cockatiel has become a favoured species within the pet bird community due to their friendly nature as companions, as well as their affordability and ease to keep. Bold in appearance and personality there are a variety of colour variations. This includes grey, yellow face and silver to name a few. Each cockatiel sports crest feather on their head giving them their distinctive appearance. Very active birds, they will sing and whistle, and enjoy human company where they are very cuddly and curious making them great pets for the whole family. Here at Birds4U we stock a variety of baby cockatiels.
For very active birds, enclosures or cages should be large enough to allow them to exercise. In addition we stock a wide range of cages that are suitable for them in stock. A variety of perches and toys will keep them stimulated and allow the,m to play. Additionally, providing additional exercise time, for instance out of cage time to explore and fly as well as the occasional chance to bathe will be beneficial in their care and help them thrive. This in turn prevents them from becoming bored easily. Natural foragers scattering food on the bottom of their cage as well as at difference levels is enriching. Offering fruits and vegetables alongside their seed mix will provide a varied diet. Cockatiels can be sensitive to dust and dander. They may sneeze occasionally. we will always offer guidance and information to help you care for your pet.
