A Cockatiel is a small, Australian bird. These birds can fly and each one is different from the next, (in color). These birds can also be kept as pets. Cockatiels are in th…e Parrot Family. They can be a household pet and are easy to breed. As a caged bird, cockatiels are second in line of popularity to the Budgerigar (Budgie) Males tend to copy sounds more than females, but females bond very strongly with their owners.
Cockatiels are native to Australia, occurring mostly in the eastern half of the continent and the north. They are rarer in Tasmania than in the other eastern mainland states. …There are small populations of cockatiels around the settled areas of Western Australia, particularly Perth, mostly because of accidental (or deliberate) releases from aviaries. Cockatiels are now kept as pets all around the world as they have a good temperament and are easily tamed. To see the distribution of cockatiels in Australia, see the related link.
Have the bird cage in your room. Don't force yourself onto the bird for 3 days. Stay in the room with the bird. Dont try to hold it, just talk to it in a calm low tone. The ne…xt step is to try feeding it some millet/treats out of your hand or even just poke it through the bars. If you do it right then in the three days, the cockatiel will understand that you will not hurt it, and it should feel friendlier towards you.
To tame a cockatiel, first keep it in a room where you spend a lotof time, so it will get used to you. Spend time talking to it andalways move slowly when around the bird. Get… as close to it as youcan without frightening it, and continue to get closer until youcan reach your hand in the cage without scaring the bird.Eventually it will learn it is safe to perch on your finger.
Yes, cockatiels can talk. I have a friend who will screach "pretty bird" until he gets attention from someone. It may take a while but if you recite a phrase enough (and bewar…e anybody that uses foul language) they will eventually learn to talk.. It should be noted that cockatiels do not actually talk. They mimic sounds, including human speech, but are incapable of forming intelligent sentences or associations with the words they seem to say.

I don't want to alarm you, but they may never come back without the aid of humans, whether it's you or another person. Be aware, if you find a lost bird, do not just think "fi…nders keepers". That bird belongs to somebody who loves them and is worried.
A Cockatiel can be up to 90g.

What keeps digging holes in your cockatiel aviary. I have a 10x10x8 aviary outside with cockatiels in it. There are holes coming from the bottom the side touching my shed wall. Snakes do not dig?
Squirrels, they can dig and have been known to eat birds on top of that.
