Just what makes people fall in love with cockatiels as pets? I didnt really think that birds would be good pets until our good friends got a couple of parakeets. We soon realized that birds do have distinctive personalities and are a lot of fun to be around. Not only for the entertainment value, but also for companionship. Since that time we have owned parakeets, finches and cockatiels. And we have loved and really enjoyed all of our birds as pets as well as family companions. But I would have to say that cockatiels are our favorite pet birds. This is because they are very lively and curious birds and are always ready to explore and spend time with their people pets. This is because cockatiels in the wild are flock birds, which means they are very social creatures. They do everything with their flock; eat, play, raise young and sleep. So if you have a pet cockatiel, you are his flock. So he will want to spend time with you every day outside of the cage socializing with you and just hanging out with you. He will sing and warble to you and also whistle tunes. He will cuddle up next to your neck and fall asleep. He will love being petted and caressed especially on the top of the heard where he cant reach. He will duck his head to you, saying time to pet me now. Since cockatiels are so active and curious, they do not like to be bored. So you will need to provide them with plenty of toys in their cage to keep them occupied. Or many bird owners, provide their pet birds with a playground outside of the cage where they can spend time staying busy. Cockatiels are very intelligent birds and can easily be trained to whistle tunes and speak. This requires you to take time to get the proper training to teach your cockatiel right. Cockatiels are also very loving birds, which is what is so endearing to us about our three cockatiels. They love to have their heads scratched and feathers petting and stroked. They will come up to you and duck their heads to be petted. Cockatiels bond with their people and this makes for a very lasting companionship throughout many years. As you can see, cockatiels do make super pets for you and for the whole family. This is why bird lovers are so crazy about their cockatiels and will do almost anything for them.
