My experience with cockatiels has been a mixed bag. Most were extraordinarily friendly and would sit on my shoulder while I moved around the house. One, which we got from a shelter as an adult, was aggressive when we got her, and we were never able to hand tame her. Cockatiels are great pets as long as you get them early enough to socialize them or they were socialized before you get them.
