I got Emilia when she was about 5-6 months old. She was a little bit nervous to eat out of the feeder at first, so I hand fed her the seeds the first couple of days to make sure she was eating. She didn't bite at all or show any aggression. Within a month or so she began to tweet the word "Boo!" as a result of my sister and I playing peek-a-boo with her on a daily basis. She also picked up the rooster whistle, chicken whistle and an assortment of others fairly quickly.

We purchased a parrot soon afterward. She gets along with him, but he sometimes likes to pick on her, so we usually keep them away from each other. We purchased another cockatiel recently around 5 months as well. She gets along with him just fine and prefers to stay near him when having her out time. She doesn't play with the toys much, but the younger one does. Emilia prefers to be on someone's shoulder than play with toys.
