Why is my cockatiel hormonal


My male cockatiel would chase around a female cockatiel picture.. he nests in his food bowl and would screech if I touch it. I’m gonna get a female cockatiel right after my vacation for 2 days! Also my male Cockatiel is mating his swing he sleeps on…


Answer:

Hi Lunar,

A female cockatiel is only going to make things worse unless you are going to try to breed them. If they are pets, then do not put them in the same cage. If you plan to try to breed them, they need to be at least 2 years old.

If you let me know your plans and what your concerns are, I can be more helpful.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,

Brenda
