Cockatiels

Available to go to their new nest, we have a variety of beautiful Cockatiels in-store at Kellyville Pets!

Cockatiels are extremely social birds. They have a need for social interaction. A single bird will get more attached to its keeper but if you are not at home a lot it is best to get two birds. It is a fact that two birds of the same sex get along just as well as a mixed pair. Even more so if the cockatiels were introduced while they are still young.

At Kellyville Pets we love our animal friends and are committed to matching owners with the right pet and providing customers with unsurpassed advice, service and selection of products. This is our way of ensuring our animals have the best possible start in their new home with you. 

All birds come with a 14 day health guarantee and a 7 day cooling off period as part of our standard policies and procedures.

About Cockatiels

Cockatiel Information:

Cockatiel Size:

Small- medium 30-40cm

Cockatiel Life Span:

15-25 years

Cockatiel Temperament:

Cockatiels are an extremely popular pet bird, and for good reason. They have a very sweet, even temperament, and will exhibit a rather curious and inquisitive nature. They can bond closely with their owners and can be extremely affectionate. Cockatiels are quite intelligent and very social, and enjoy interacting with their human. When properly stimulated, they are relatively easy to care for and make wonderful companions.

Cockatiel Grooming:

Regular wing clipping is recommended to prevent flying away or any injuries to the bird.
Giving your cockatiel the opportunity to bathe is important. Frequent bathing serves several purposes. It prevents dry skin, softens the keratin coating which helps with moulting, and keep your bird bright and clean.
Your bird should have access to a bathing dish with fresh water every day.

Cockatiel Cage:

Cockatiels can be quite active little birds, and should be allowed time outside their cage each day to play, explore, and stretch their wings.

The cage should be as large as possible. The height of the cage is less important than the width and length. Your bird needs to be able to flap its wings without risking injury. Ideally the minimum length and width should be 50cm. This size will give more room for your bird to fly from one side to the other.
