Acquired: Pet store
Posted Apr 14, 2013
After owning a budgie when I was younger I decided to try a a cockatiel. I found a shop that had one in for half the price I had found elsewhere but it was not hand tamed, but that they were very easy to tame yourself. Hmmmm quickly regretted that one as every time I went near it, it screamed, flapped it's wings and tried (and succeeded) to bite me (not what you want with children around)
Not as successful as the budgie but provided company for a while even if it was screeching most of the time.
