When I was a bit younger, we were given six cockatiels by my auntie. We'd never had birds before, so it was a learning experience for me all around. They were pretty to look at and did like to mimic a bit, and they had tall cages where they all sat and made a bunch of noise.
The problem was they wouldn't stop making noise, even when they were covered half the time. It was a bit difficult to sleep at times, and cleaning their cage was a nightmare and completely turned me off of ever owning other birds in my life. They were nice to look at while I had them, but ultimately I don't think they are right for me.
