Find all the bird cage accessories that your cockatiel needs. Cockatiel sized bird perches and bird beds, water bottles and cups. No need for a boring cockatiel bird cage. Create a homey little nest for your feathered friend.
Like Parakeets or Budgies, Cockatiels are often the first bird for beginner pet bird enthusiasts. But, these little parrots are a perfect pet for experienced parrot enthusiasts, as well. Cockatiels are smaller, quieter and less destructive than their larger parrot friends making them excellent pets for the apartment dweller. The Cockatiel Bird Cage doesn't take up as much room and the bird cage accessories are smaller and more affordable.
From Australia, wild Cockatiels are ground feeders, eating primarily grasses, seeds, leaves, Australian tree bark and even grubs! They often are found residing in dead trees near bodies of water. Keep in mind the wild Cockatiel habitat as you are choosing your bird cage accessories.
We recommend that you get the largest bird cage that you can afford that offers 1/2" bar space. As ground dwellers, these pet birds like to travel back and forth so a long bird cage may be preferred. These little birds need to forage, dig and chew. They like to climb upon thin structures whether it be aSmall Birdie Bungee or a natural branch birdperch. Small parrots that feed on thin grass blades and seed, choose bird toys that offer thin natural fibers such as those made from sea grass or coco fiber that your pet Cockatiel can run through it's beak. And, like all parrots, chewing soft sticks and soft balsa wood bird toys is innate. Soft wood bird toys and bird perches will be greatly appreciated. As will a little bird bed such as the Scooter Z Sleep Tent.
Oh, a couple of more Cockatiel Accessories that both your and your feathered friend will appreciate. A Shoulder Apron will keep your pet bird Cockatiel from chewing holes in your shirt or pooping down your back. Cheaper than a T-shirt, this shoulder apron is a must. We are fond of Cockatiel Shoulder Apron Accessories that both catch bird poop and have a bird toy hanger to give your Cockatiel something to nibble on, besides your hair. And, while your Cockatiel is riding about on your shoulder, how about a Birdie Necklace? Soft wood, Cockatiel sized parts and colorful display make this Cockatiel sized bird toy a real comfort.
