I was wondering how your experience with a cockatiel has been. I'm planning on getting a bird and I've heard great things of cockatiels. Has anyone had any bad experiences with one?

I have an albino cockatiel. I trained him to fly back to me. I used to produce him from a special dove harness. They are very intelligent, loving and talkative.
Good Luck!

I have 4 cockateils. Like any other animal you have to work with them. I have 2 that are fingertame and a breeding pair. The finger tame ones fly back to me and have vocabs of up to 10 words. They are great pets. Try and get a handfed thought because that makes taming 100 times easier... I would know.
