A profile of the cockatiel

Like the budgie, the popular cockatiel comes from Australia.
Cockatiels are native to the outback of Australia and inhabit almost the entire continent. They are not considered an endangered species and their population is said to be quite stable. Their triumphal procession in Europe began around 1840. In their search for food, they roam the country in large swarms, covering distances of up to 100km per day. They have adapted perfectly to the high temperatures and the sometimes heavy rainy season, as well as drought. In wild animals an age of maximum 15 years is reached, in the home keeping it can be partly clearly more. The cockatiel has a length of about 30 cm and it weighs between 70-100g. In the wild, the appearance is usually gray with white wings and the typical orange spot on the cheek. Through breeding, such a variety of colors has developed that sometimes females and males can no longer be distinguished.

The cockatiel as a pet

In recent decades, much breeding has been done for the pet owner. Now there are cockatiels in many different colors. The best known colors are whiteheads, pearls, albinos, cinnamon, pearl fritillaries or lutinos. Due to their adaptability, captive broods are not uncommon. Since it is also a flock bird in pet keeping, keeping them singly is absolutely taboo. This can otherwise lead to behavioral problems and consequently to diseases. Nymphs need a lot of space. Whereby the floor space is the keyword, this should be at least 3m². They want to fly, so rather choose long aviaries than high ones. Concerning the furnishing, please do not use any plastic toys. Stick to natural furnishings such as incubators in the tree stump, branches with leaves or natural wood as perches. This is the only way for the animals to get rid of their claws and cutting becomes almost superfluous. Once again it should be mentioned that cockatiels must always be kept at least in pairs.

Cockatiel diet

In the wild, cockatiels gather their food on the ground. With the onset of the rainy season, the grass seeds sprout and the buffet is opened. They love grass seed and tree seed is also quite popular. On the large millet plantations in Australia they are not very welcome guests. The food supply there is large. So cockatiels feed mainly on grass seeds, millet and berries. Only with grain food he unfortunately does not get along. This definitely leads to deficiency symptoms. Also the pet food from the specialized trade is not suitable. Too much fat by sunflower seeds and usually also sugar and granules are found in the food. Our species-appropriate mixtures are specially designed for the needs of cockatiels. Also sprouted food and cooked food, as well as various panicle grasses and panicle millet are gladly offered and eaten as employment.


The 5 most common diseases in cockatiels

  • Obesity: also called obesity for short, occurs in most animals. By wrong nutrition with food from the discounter you feed the bird too one-sided and too greasy. Here helps the change to grass seed-containing feed mixtures.
  • Feather plucking: The plucking of feathers can have many causes. Most are stress, malnutrition, but also solitary confinement. Because from a calm animal can quickly become a screamer, which tears off the plumage. Then the animals are not socialized enough or live in solitary confinement. Also a mineral deficiency can be present with feather plucking. In general, you should ask a veterinarian who knows birds for advice.
  • Laying dead: This occurs when an egg is not laid. Therefore, egg death occurs without warning. Only the change of the eggshell would be an indication. So-called wind eggs would be a sign. The calcification around the egg is then insufficient. A change in the fallopian tube or the cloaca can be the cause. An infection for example. Especially females, which are under high laying stress, often have to fight with egg laying. To prevent the disease, cockatiels can be given vitamins and mineral stones. They then absorb calcium, vitamin D3 and vitamin A, which have a positive effect.
  • Liver problems: It is not uncommon for liver disease to occur in cockatiels due to improper husbandry conditions and improper diet. Liver disease can be detected e.g. through the feces. The urine is then yellowish discolored, in severe disease even really yellow. Increased claw and beak growth, dull, lackluster, shaggy plumage can also be a sign. Then it is called off to the bird-expert veterinary surgeon. The change of diet can then take place. We offer a liver & kidney cure.
  • Tumors: they are divided into malignant and benign tumors. Benign tumors are, among others, fat tumors. Such lipomas can be prevented or eliminated by species-appropriate feeding and plenty of exercise. Malignant tumors can unfortunately affect many organs: liver and kidneys are a few of them. Tumors are extremely rare to operate on in cockatiels and the mortality rate is high. This is because most vet visits in Germany are due to tumors. Euthanasia is usually not avoided. Since the cockatiel is very popular as a beginner pet among parrots, keepers usually mistakenly assume obesity or egg laying, although the cause of the disease is actually tumors.
