Cockatiels are small parrots native to Australia. Cockatiels are social animals that thrive on human interaction, forming strong bonds with their companions. They require plenty of mental and physical stimulation to stay healthy and happy.

Additionally, cockatiels are relatively low-maintenance compared to many other types of pet birds, requiring only occasional bathing and cage cleaning to keep them in top condition.
