Description

Description

Description: The Cockatiel (Nymphicus hollandicus), also known as the Quarrion and the Weiro, is a member of the cockatoo family endemic to Australia. The Albino Cockatiel is not a true 'albino, but is actually a combination of a White-faced Cockatiel and a Lutino Cockatiel. The Whiteface gene removes all the yellow and orange that would be present in a Lutino, and the Lutino gene removes all the black and grey. The result is an all white cockatiel with red eyes. They are impossible to sex visually, so you will need a DNA test to determine what sex your pet is. Cockatiels are prized as household pets and companion parrots throughout the world and are relatively easy to breed. As a caged bird, cockatiels are second in popularity only to the budgerigar. The Cockatiel is the only member of the genus Nymphicus. Cockatiels were previously considered a crested parrot or small cockatoo, but more recent molecular studies have assigned it to its own subfamily, Nymphicinae. Therefore, it is now classified as the smallest of the Cacatuidae (cockatoo family). 

Geography: Cockatiels are native to Australia, and favor the Australian wetlands, scrublands, and bush lands.

Song / Call: Click here for the Cockatiels Song / Call

Size: 12" - 14" long

Sexing: Some cockatiels are easily sexed visually while others are not. If there is not a gender option available when ordering, we are unable to guarantee gender.

Life Span: 16 - 25 Years

Temperament: Cockatiels are extremely social birds. They have a need for social interaction. A single pet bird will get more attached to its keeper, but if you are not at home a lot it is best to get two birds. Two birds of the same sex get along just as well as a mixed pair. Well socialized birds are gentle and friendly.

Breeding: Cockatiels are generally easy to breed. 

Diet: High Quality Cockatiel Seed, Australian Blend Goldenfeast, Fruits, Greens, Meats, Hard Boiled or Scrambled Eggs, Peanuts, Cuttlefish BoneDried Egg Food

DNA Testing  Note: If a DNA test is selected by a customer to determine gender of a bird, a charge of $99.00 is charged per test, and the results may take 3-6 plus weeks for results. 

* If there is not a gender option listed for this bird on our website, that particular species is 'monomorphic,' which means we’re unable to determine gender without DNA testing. If no DNA testing is ordered, we are unable to guarantee a preferred gender, but will do our best if you note your preference in the comment section of your order. See our FAQs for more info.

Received another Happy Healthy Bird.

Received another happy healthy Cockatiel from "THE FINCH FARM". This is another Whiteface Lutino (Albino) mutation to add to my breeding program. Pure white and regal looking. Very elegant of the Whiteface mutation of Cockatiels, and I highly recommend. Thanks to THE FINCH FARM for making me happy once again with another addition to my bird family.

Outstanding Care & Service from start to finish.

This is my second purchase with The Finch Farm. I recently ordered 12 parakeets for my aviary and received them super fast and all are healthy and thriving. I placed another order for 4 cockatiels and received them within a few weeks and they are healthy and singing up a storm. The care from the staff at The Finch Farm is outstanding from start to finish. I am a very happy customer. Give them a try and you will not be disappointed. I live on the East Coast and they arrived USPS within a day and a half once they are shipped. They are not stressed due to the care that the staff provides to them as they are prepared for their journey to their new homes. The travel box has everything they need to survive a stress free trip. Very satisfied customer.
