History [ edit ]

Cockatiels were introduced in Europe around mid 1800s. They rapidly became very popular pets because of their quite yet joyful disposition. In the wild, they live in relatively arid areas but always near water. They are extremely nomadic. Some Australian farmers consider them a pest due to their avid appetite for crops.

Temperament [ edit ]

The Cockatiels are sociable enough to be housed in the same aviary with small finches, quails, doves and some softbills.

The crest can indicate the mood of the bird, when erect it indicates excitement or irritation and down it means the bird is calm.
