Cockatiels For Sale

Cockatiels

Cockatiels are extremely comical and social birds that are popular as house pets in the US. They are amazing whistlers, which makes them pleasing for many pet owners. Did you know that male cockatiels whistle serenades to their favorite people, especially owners? Male cockatiels may even direct their serenades to their own mirror reflections or their favorite object. If they are not whistling, you will surely find them snuggling on the arm or shoulder of their owner or favorite person. They’re good at looking for food in their cage and making it look interesting. For pet-loving families in need of a social and affectionate pet, cockatiels for sale are an ideal choice.

Native Region / Natural Habitat

Cockatiels don’t carry a screech similar to the ear-piercing sound from parrots. This is because they come from open environments like semi-arid and nearly arid regions across Australia. That’s the native region cockatiels belong to. In the wilderness, cockatiels have to come down to the ground to search for food. In the wild, cockatiels breed rapidly, but breeding them in captivity is also easy. Easy breeding and wide availability are some of the main reasons why they are so readily available in the market for pet owners. It also lowers their cost, making them affordable pets for families.


Since cockatiels remain light sleepers throughout their life in the wild, they are always suspicious and remain on high alert for fear of predators. This isn’t the case with most captive pet cockatiels for sale, but night-fright incidents once in a while are common. If your pet cockatiel starts thrashing its head on the cage, you can leave a night light on to help them feel comfortable.

 

Personality & Behavior

Did you know that you can tell about a cockatiel's mood from the positioning of the feathers on their crest? If the feathers are straight up, the bird is either extremely curious or startled by something. Sometimes, when the bird is relaxing and calm, it will hold the crest feathers slightly backward while the cheek feathers will fluff up. If the bird is calm and happy, it will keep grinding its beak. But, if the bird is being defensive, it will hiss and hold the crest feathers close to the head and flatten them.
 

Non-toxic and easy breakage chew toys are the best play objects for cockatiels for sale. Make sure that the toys are non-toxic and substance-neutral so that your pet stays safe. Bead fiddles are hard-plastic toys among cockatiels’ favorite toys. Since they are amazing whistlers, they look for mirrors and many reflective objects to whistle to. Keep a close check on where your pet cockatiel is because they have a constant habit of moving down to the floor to play or forage for food. Often, female cockatiels will look for secretive corners, but you can get them back by training them to whistle on cue.

Speech & Sounds

While these birds can speak a few phrases or words, male cockatiels whistle more than female cockatiels. Their chirping sound is low, which makes it clear that they are suitable as apartment pets. If a cockatiel sees you leaving the room, they may chirp at you if you are their favorite person and want to stay with you.
