The cockatiel is a beautiful bird that makes a great pet. Its vibrant colors and pleasant demeanor make the cockatiel a favorite of avian lovers all throughout the world.

In terms of the minimum size recommended for a cockateil cage for one bird, you should go with twenty four inches high, eighteen inches across, and eighteen inches wide. Of course you can go larger than that – in this case bigger is definitely better. The cockatiel cage you select should have vertical and horizontal bars that will allow the bird to climb around the cage. In terms of the sides, ensure that your bird cannot stick his head through the bars. This could present a safety hazard and potential for injury.

Keeping your pet in its cage all the time is not good for the bird.
