Cockatiels can live an extraordinary amount of time. When we first got This little guy I was just going into highschool and it was primarily my job to care for this guy. When I left for college my family just couldn't deal with him. He was mad. All. The. Time. He missed me, and he missed talking to me and playign with me. When other peopel tried to handle them he started to bite. He stopped singing and started screeching instead. When I would go home on breaks he would be insanely mad at me for leaving, but how mad he got the first time I left was nothing compared to how mad her was after I went back to school after my first summer break. My family simply didn't want to have to deal with this now hugely aggressive bird who was upset his owner was gone, so they had to put him up for adoption. I'f I'm being completely fair he was also always at least a little aggressive towards me, but the change when I went to school was unreal. This pet is a lifetime pet. Be prepared.
