Hip Hop Cockatiel

This little guy has some musical talent.

Here is a good tip to keep in mind: often, a cockatiel sold through a pet store will have a toy in its cage when on display. Purchasing the toy to which the bird has become familiar helps comfort the bird as it adapts to its new surroundings. During times when the owner is in the room with the bird, the cage door can be left open and, once the bird has become comfortable with the owner's presence, the bird may exit the cage to investigate the owner. Forcing a bird to leave a cage if it's not ready may cause the cockatiel to be less trusting of the owner.
