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)
