Cockatiel's are adorable. They are extremely smart, whimsical and like to put on a show.

We used to let him fly around the house and he used to love it.

They are very easy to look after. They don't need much, just fresh water and a good bird mix. Keeping the cage clean is highly recommended.

We were very close to teaching him how to say a few words - but it takes time and patience.

I wouldn't recommend letting these birds fly outside. They have a mind of their own and they may never return (my nephew learned that the hard way)
