Although we didn't have Magic for very long, he was a wonderful pet who loved to fly around the house (with all the windows closed of course!)
As with most small animals, the highest portion of their cost lies with the initial outlay of equipment, such as cage and feeding apparatus. Once these have been bought, general upkeep is relatively low.
My experience with cockatiels wasn't long enough to state whether it not they become affectionate with their owners, although with time I imagine they would do.
A lively bird that, if properly maintained, would make a fantastic family pet for those interested in birds.
