Milo is Chico's brother he is a Grey Tiel. He is a very vocal little guy especially when he is bored with his toys. He is a love bug and always says hi to me when I walk by his cage. He will climb to the door of the cage when he wants some love. The down fall is price buying everything is costly here is some info-Cockatiels need at least two hours everyday out of their cage socializing with you.Sound level low to moderate..They are smart and can learn tricks, to whistle, and some can learn to talk.The four main colors are Grey, Pied, Pearl, and Latino.A cage would run anywhere from $60- as big as you can afford, look on ebayMin. cage dimensions: 20x20x26 (larger preferred)Bar spacing: up to 1/2"The bird will range from $50-$100 different colors are more expensive. They live from 15-20 years.Good pellet diet food, Millet spray, Mineral block, Water bottle for mist baths, different perches, and Toys will be around $60-$90. Expect to spend around $200-$250
I spent around 305 for everthing including the birds, just the monthly prices of owning them is around $15-$20 to buy their toys. Toys are very important to all birds in captivity with out them birds get bored and scream and pluck their body bear. I have to buy them food about everything 2 and a half months I feed nurti-berries it is very healthy for them, plus it is less mess. Tiels love shredable toys my adore them and it keeps them busy for hours.
