Kokatiel is a very charming bird with adorable cheek spots and lavish headdress. They are usually taken as pets, being very sociable and affectionate feathermates. They produce a variety of sounds and can be very noisy, as well. Kokatiel must be treated with sweetness and love.
That wonderful parrot comes from Australia. They were discovered by the end of the 18th century, but they reached their popularity in the 20th century. Kokatiel still lives in the wilds of Australia. I could see people circling the sky looking for water. They like to relax in the big waters, chill out and hide the brutal Australian heat. Kokatiel can speak and whistle. Men are generally more stories than women.
Kokatiel is very sociable and does not like to be alone. They love interacting with their owners, so you should be able to spend time with your chatty friends. Having a Cocatiel is a serious commitment. Those beautiful parrots are not decorations for your home. They require regular bird vet examinations, proper living conditions and good food. Kocatiel is particularly sensitive to the draft, so stay away from draft areas such as air conditioning vents. The pet cage must be size-appropriate. Kokatiel is a medium-sized bird, so you need a spacey cage.
Kokatiel can live up to 25 years. However, the average life expectancy is up to 15. So, it’s like you have a four-legged pet. Kokatiel can be a really lovely, adorable and irresistible pet. If treated properly, you can be a great friend.
What do they eat?
When it comes to food, Kokatiel needs different types of food. A balanced nutrition plan for Cocatiel should consist of a variety of bivans. Pets may prefer to eat rice. The golden rule is that parrots choose what they like and don’t force them to eat something tasteless. It is advisable to eat other viands, but kocatiel may want to have pellets and seeds. For pets, you shouldn’t worry, it’s safe and fine.
Fresh water is essential. Parrots can always use pure and fresh water and need to change regularly.
Seeds and pellets
Many experts will suggest that you should feed kokatiel pellets as a basic food.
However, if the menu is varied, you can also feed the seeds. Some cocatiels have actually lived up to 20 years in a diet based on diversity. So, as long as your parrot has different kinds of food on the regular menu, feeding the seeds is completely fine. When you see it, always make sure that they are clean and free like dangerous fungus or the same. Rinse with warm soapy water and dry thoroughly before serving. Always supply a new part of the seed and the cocatiel; The birds are very thorough in extracting the seeds from the shell, so if you do not take regular attention, the intestines can be filled with shells and food that cannot actually be eaten.
Fruits and vegetables
Kokatiel enjoys eating a wide variety of fruits and vegetables. They should be served in small portions, chopped or shredded. Give your parrot a small piece of it, to see if it likes it or not. Always thoroughly wash fruits and vegetables and make sure they are free of pesticides and chemicals.
Kokatiel-friendly fruits are diverse. Apples, mangoes, papayas, bananas, grapes, nectarin, oranges, apricots, cantaloupe and more. The only thing you have to worry about fruits is their seeds. Fruit seeds contain cyanide, a toxic element that can be very dangerous to cocatiel. Cyanide is harmful to our pets and most of us, as well.
However, because Kokatiel is smaller than ours, there is less cyanide to get serious problems. Therefore, you should always pit all the fruits and make sure that they do not contain any seeds at all, before feeding the parrot.
Vegetables are great for Cocatiel. Carrots, broccoli, beet vegetables, dried tomatoes, corn, endiv, kale, spinach, sprouts, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, mustard vegetables, turnip vegetables and more. Most of the vegetables are better if they are fresh, but Kokatiel prefers to cook pumpkins, sweet potatoes and vegetables. Without addition or spices, of course.
Kokatiel can have meat safely. A small amount of meat can be good for them. Choose only high quality chicken and beef meat or fish. Kokatiel can benefit from some diary products (cottages) such as boiled eggs, scrambled eggs, and yogurt and fresh cheese.
Another good source of protein in Cocatiel is peanuts. Those birds are omnivorous and, as you can see, need a lot of different nutrients to grow and stay healthy.
Feeding parrots is strictly prohibited. Stay away from spicy salty foods such as garlic, onions, salt, caffeine, sugar and sugar foods, fatty snacks and snacks. In general, avoid avocados, chocolate and human foods.
