The newest photo-filled title in Barron's Living With a Pet series was written especially for prospective cockatiel owners who are looking for detailed information about the needs and traits of this fascinating bird. Originally native to Australia, cockatiels are members of the parrot family. Wild cockatiels tend to be smaller than birds bred in captivity. Given proper care the cockatiel thrives and readily breeds in captivity. This book offers advice on choosing one or more good specimens, setting up the bird's home with proper fixtures and fittings, acclimating the bird to its new home, indoors or in an outdoor aviary, correct feeding, bathing, wing clipping, beak and nail trimming, observing and understanding cockatiel behavior, house training, voice training, dealing with problem behavior, breeding, exhibiting cockatiels in shows, and health care.
