Tame Cockatiel is a very charming pet bird.
They love to whistle and can be very noisy when they exited.
They just enjoy to accompany us. Pet Cockatiel can be teached some trick and
also can be train to talk. Cockatiel is able to whistle and can talk if
we teach them properly. However, I would like to stress here that as a
birds keeper, we should provide a good house for them. Good cage with
enough room for them to climb and "fly" and also some toys for them to play
when we are not at home is necessary for keeping Pet Cockatiel.
I think cockatiel is an ideal pet bird for many of us. It is not very
expensive as many pet birds such as Macaw, Cockatoo or Amazon Parrot. It even
not as expensive as Conures or some of the Parakeet, while it is can be
consider bigger than budgie. It can be classified as small pet birds as the
size is about 30 CM from head to its tail. The tail is about half of the
In Malaysia, I saw many
pet shop sell cockatiel. However, these Cockatiel is not hand feed and if you
are not very lucky, normally you can only find Cockatiel that is not tame.
From the information that I get from some pets shop owner in Kuala Lumpur,
they import Cockatiel to Malaysia. They claim that there are no Cockatiel
breeder in Malaysia.
I start to
keep Cockatiel since year 2000. However, before I buy my first Cockatiel, I
have buy and read many book about keeping and breeding Cockatiel. I spend lots
of money and time to learn how to keep and breed Cockatiel and other pet
birds. I get my first book in 1996, which title "You and Your Pet
Birds" by Dr. David Alderton. Now I have dozens of book about pets
especially about pet birds in English, Malays and Thai language. I invest more
money in learning how to keep the birds properly compared to the cost of
buying the birds itself. I recommend everyone that want to keep Cockatiel or
any other pets to read and learn as much as you can before decide to go ahead
and buy the animal. You can check some interesting book regarding keeping or
After having my Cockatiel, I have try to breed them. I have keep many
pet birds (in different cage of course) but haven't had any that is very tame,
therefore I think by breeding
my Cockatiel, I can have a very tame Cockatiel as pets. In year 2002 I able to
breed them and I had two baby that survive. I think that is just the beginning
and now I had many baby cockatiel which is very tame and very charming.
I think, everyone that like to
keep Cockatiel especially in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia should have a chance to
have a tame Cockatiel. Cockatiel can be teach to speak, and I believe that if
you have a tame one. It is easier for you to teach them! Learn how to train
your birds here.
I decide to sell my hand feed Cockatiel to Cockatiel
enthusiasts. If you live in Kuala Lumpur area, I can manage to send them
directly to your house, with no extra charge. But of course if you stay very
far from my house, I may have to charge extra for that. By the way, if you want
to buy the Cockatiel, I hope you can prepare a comfortable cage (you can buy a birds
cage in any Pets Shop) for your Cockatiel. Please note here that the cage should
be big enough for your birds to moved around, as in the first few day you should
leave her alone. If you would like to train the cockatiel, you can start to train
her after a week you aquire her. This is because the Cockatiel should be familiar
with her cage before you bring her out.
would like to advice to anyone that thinking of keeping animal as pets to
learn as much as possible about the animals or birds. They will become good
companion with good care from you but you must know their need and the
'bad" side of keeping them. Check some book pets
