My bird Rooty

I have had my cockatiel my whole life. Rooty was actually a year older than me! He died a couple years ago but he live to be 22. Cockatiels are defiantly an animal you are going to have around for a while so make sure you really want one. They are very fun birds to have and are extremely intelligent. I had a clock that would ring every hour and Rooty would whistle before it would ring every hour! Kids love them and enjoy talking to them but it can get a little annoying. My cockatiel was very loud and chirped all the time. If you don't mind a little noise and can commit to it, a cockatiel is a great pet for you.
