Cockatiel and other pets: Can they get along ?


            Do you start to keep pets and this Cockatiel is your first pets? Or do you already have other pets in your house and this or these Cockatiel is just your additional stock?

            Cockatiel, normally easy to make friend with other birds especially the one that is smaller than them. However you should take into consideration that many other species of bird that is aggressive and can be very aggressive. They may kill your pet Cockatiel!

           This is not about cockatiel and other birds, but some story regarding birds that is not friendly. I hope this will able to give you some idea that we must be very careful if we want to keep our birds (from many species together). Few years back, I have a big cage which I keep many birds inside. One day I buy an indian ringneck parakeet and keep with the flock. They can live together with other birds (with some bulbul, and some other finches), Later I saw some Blue crown hanging parrot and decide to buy one and keep together with other birds in my big aviary. Since this birds is very small compared to other birds, I didn't suspect at all that fight will happen. Guest what, this small birds is bulling all other birds. this lead to some fatal. For your information, here is common birds that we keep but is very aggressive and we should be very careful if we want to mixed these birds with our cockatiel. The list will include: Budgie, Parakeet and lovebird.

            If you have cat or dogs, you have to be extra careful. Cats is very likely to hurt the bird (the dogs too), therefore if you do keep cats or dogs, you should net let them stay in the room when you let your Cockatiel out of her cage.
