My husband and I are interested in having a cockatiel as a pet. We were going to purchase a bird from an ad in the newspaper. It seems after 10 years or so this lady's male cockatiel learned about sex and this is their second clutch.

We were going to get a bird from the first about 5 months old but the lady says she will help me hand feed a tiel from the 3 eggs that she has now. My husband wants to get two so they will have a companion. We bought a large cage and are anxiously awaiting the babies to arrive.

My question is whether we should get 1 or 2. I am confused with looking through some of the threads on this page. We are both retired and I know they will get a lot of attention. So should I talk to him about just getting 1 or is it alright to get 2 if you start them out from the same clutch.

I hope this makes sense.

Thank you.

Sunbunny
