The Cockatiel is the smallest cockatoo in Australia and is second only to the parakeet in caged bird popularity. They are easy to breed and make nice household pets.

The crest on the Cockatiels head tends to mirror the bird's feelings adding to the enjoyment of owning this pet. If the crest is up the bird is excited or startled. If the crest is relaxed the bird is calm. A crest held tight against its head indicates anger or defensiveness. When the Cockatiel is trying to appear flirtatious or alluring the crest protrudes outward.

For the most part the Cockatiel is a sweet and gentle bird and is easy to tame. The temperament is usually determined on how it is handled. A good home frequently means a sweet tempered Cockatiel. However hereditary can play a role on whether your bird is shy or outgoing.

Cockatiels need a lot of attention and may try to get their owners focus if ignored. If the beloved owner leaves the room the Cockatiel may try to call them back and be upset until they come back. If the bird is free they will

follow the owner from room to room. Cockatiels don't have the nosily screech of some other parrots but they can make piercing cries. But most of the time their calls are gentle cheeps. Males tend to be louder then females.

Once you bring your new Cockatiel home it is best to leave it in its cage and after a few days leave the cage door open to allow it to come out when it is ready. Forcing the bird to come out will make it more distrustful of you. Cockatiels can be feed some human food like unsweetened cereals, rice, carrots, some fruits and bread and pasta. Never feed it chocolate, caffeine, apple seeds, avocados, peaches, pears or cherries as these can kill your pet. Also avoid anything that has processed sugar as it can cause a hyper or aggressive affect. (on humans too)

Both the female and the male Cockatiel will assist in rearing its young. Eggs usually hatch after 18-22 days and the babies might come out of the nest between 4 to 5 weeks old. They are still dependence on the parents until they are between 8 to 10 weeks old. Cockatiels reach their full growth and can breed by one year for the males and 15 to 18 months for the females.

Dear Cockatiel Fans,

I am writing to you in behalf of your Heavenly Father. He is seeking you like a lost sheep. You remember the Bible story? It is about a shepherd who has 100 sheep. But when he brings the sheep home one night, one is missing. He then leaves the 99 sheep and goes out into the wilderness until he finds that lost sheep.

In this parable the shepherd goes out to search for the one lost sheep-the very least that can be numbered. So if there had been but one lost soul, Christ would have died for that one. To read more click Lost Sheep
