Can I get my mature Cockatiel a friend?


I want to work, but when I leave him he gets upset!


Answer:

Hi,

If he is tame, he most likely wouldn’t care about another bird. And if he bonds with another bird, he won’t stay tame with you. It’s best to make sure he has toys to play with and try leaving music or children’s programming on to keep him company. Most owners work, and birds act up when they leave, but then settle down and stay busy or nap til the owner gets home.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,

Brenda
