The scientific name for cockatiels is Nymphicus Hollandicus, which means “Goddess of New Holland.” Australia is the native homeland of cockatiels. Pet cockatiels are bred domestically because Australia banned exportation of all native birds in 1894. They are social and intelligent and make great companions. Cockatiels are exotic birds known for their beautiful crests, the orange patch on their cheeks and their long sleek tails. These charming birds provide us with lots of entertainment, affection and companionship.
Cockatiels are extremely social birds. They have a need for social interaction. A single bird will get more attached to its keeper but if you are not at home a lot it is best to get two birds. It is a fact that two birds of the same sex get along just as well as a mixed pair. Even more so if the cockatiels were introduced while they are still young.
