Cockatiels are intelligent and sociable birds that can be kept alone or in groups within an aviary.
Cockatiels are better kept alone if you have the time to finger tame them and keep them company within the house, otherwise personally, I think they are better kept as a couple or in a group so they have some companionship.
They are gentle and docile and like to be played with and touched.
The cockatiel is famous for their bright orange cheek patches and their crests (the little hairdo they have!)
They are generally very social, gentle and affectionate in nature. They interact well with most members of the family, and even other animals such as cats and dogs as well as they are introduced from an early age and in a safe environment. Cockatiels are inquisitive and active and enjoy flying, playing and chewing!!
