Cockatiels are wonderful, fairly easy to care for and friendly. Not to mention striking to look at! I would recommend this pet for a family with older children, though it is important to make sure it has been 'handfed' and not 'parentfed' as it will be easier to handle and more open to being touched my humans. They need daily care, decent sized cages (that need cleaning approximately once a week) and I would advice getting it's wings clipped - they can be fast! they tend to make the most noise morning and night, though sometimes putting a sheet over the cage can help (simulates nighttime, can help/encourage them to sleep!). Lovely singers and, if you put the time in, can mimic words as well.
An ideal little animal.
