Sweet Family Pet

As a rule, I would never recommend a bird as a pet for small children. With proper training (of the child), however, Cockatiels make excellent family pets and enjoy being a part of your flock. Females are more vocal than males, although both sexes enjoy vocalizing. Some of our more clever friends even learned to sing along with popular songs on the radio. As with most birds, these are social creatures that will do better if they are not the only bird in the house.
