I would start by placeing the five pound bag at the bottom of the cage marking the height of the seed, carefully remove the bag as not to puncture it. Mark your calander,When droppings begin to reach the height mark it may be time to purchase another bag. Check your calander an wala.

How long will it take for a cockatiel to be used to you?

It depends on the cockatiel, and it depends on the owner. I would say if you let it warm up to you and if you try to give it treats and sing and/or talk to it in a calm voice it would be from 1 week-5 weeks. If it was hand-fed and cared for by humans as a chick then it would be sooner than a wild cockatiel. It also is very dependent on the cockatiel's personality. Cockatiels have varied personalities just like people, so you would have to know the cockatiel personally.

How do you know when your cockatiel likes you?

Well, it isn't really a matter of a cockatiel liking you or not. It is a matter of a cockatiel trusting and loving you. You can offer them treats, sing them songs, and talk to them to quicken up the speed of their trust. If your cockatiel chirps when you leave the room, runs to the front of the cage when you enter the room, or flies to you when he is sitting on a perch, those are signs that your cockatiel would rather be with you than anywhere else. Congrats! You have awarded your cockatiels trust and love.

Why is your cockatiel not very tame?

Cockatiels are wild birds so if they were never tamed when they were young, they will still be untame. It is easier to tame a young cockatiel, however with the right attitude, you can tame an adult cockatiel. You have to start with trust. Taming a cockatiel take a while and one wrong move could ruin all your work. Start with standing next to the cage and talking to your bird. Do this for about a week so your cockatiel gets to know your voice and is calmer around you. Then you could try putting a fresh vegetable (in your hand) next to the cockatiel and hold it there. Don't force the cockatiel to get closer to your hand - this will scare him/her. You need to earn trust. Eventually, your cockatiel will be comfortable with you having your hand near him/her. If you cockatiel is comfortable to actually eat from your hand, you can try picking it up. Do not grab our cockatiel on its back, try to persuade him/her to sit on your finger. Do not force your cockatiel to get onto your hand. This will ruin the trust. Eventually your cockatiel will be ready to sit on your finger and eventually your shoulder! It's all about trust and if you're cockatiel trusts you, it would love to sit on your shoulder!

Can cockatiels sit on bluebird eggs and raise them?

Well, it depends on if the cockatiel is willing to raise the egg that is obviously not it's egg. If it is, then the bluebird chick will learn how to live life as a cockatiel. The bluebird will never have a crest, but it will learn the cockatiel's language as it's own and think it is a cockatiel because that is the type of bird it is living with. However, if you had a wild cockatiel and you set a bluebird egg in with the other eggs, the cockatiel would reject the eggs because they do not look right or smell right, and would drop the egg out of the nest. I hope that answered your question. :) - Emily Sage

Why do cockatiel birds sit with their back to you?

It means it's frightened. A cockatiel sitting with its back to you is not usually frightened, as a frightened bird is more likely to flap and cower in a corner, keeping its eyes on you, rather than turning its back to you, which would render it vulnerable to predation. If a cockatiel sits with its back to you, it can mean the bird is distressed or ill. It can also mean the bird is, quite simply, sulking. Cockatiels bond strongly to their owners, and if a new pet is introduced, or something unusual happens in the household, a cockatiel will sometimes react in a seemingly human way - by sulking.

What birds can you safely keep in the same cage with a cockatiel?

Basically, cockatiels are better off alone in their own cage. You never know if your cockatiel would rather be alone in his own cage, or have a roomie. If you don't have a lot of time to spend with your cockatiel, then maybe you should think about getting a second cockatiel to keep each other company while you are away at work, school, ext. But on the other hand, if you have lots of time to spend with him, you should just let him have the whole cage to live in by himself. If you absolutely need to room your cockatiel with a pal, it will double the cost of the cage, toys, and food. Be responsible, and have fun with your baby(ies).
