-Additional information: Need a nice roomy cage (a minimum of 20 x 20 x 24 inches) with different levels and perches as well as toys, mirrors and cuttlebone to keep their beak trimmed. Will need plenty of cockatiel seed or pellets and a regularly offered variety of species-appropriate fruit and veggies, such as small amounts of apples, cantaloupe, sweet potato, and dark greens. Cockatiels, like most birds, are very social and love to live with a companion. If they are the only one in the cage, they must be handled daily without fail. Cockatiels are capable of whistling intricate tunes, becoming finger trained, and so much more! FUN FACT: Tweetie can whistle the entire theme song to The Andy Griffith Show.
