Cockatiel and Conure care and handling is the same. The Cockatiel is a less aggressive bird than the Conure, so keep them apart unless you are right there to watch and make sure Conure does not hurt Cockie. The Conure will hurt him in time, so do not cage them together and always be there if they are playing outside cage.

The Cockie does not need a sleepy bed. Birds actually do not need these things and sometimes end up injured because of them. All birds sleep sitting on their perches as that is the natural way.

Food is important for both types of birds. All your birds need to be eating organic high quality pellets and not all seed diets, people food or nuts, eggs, pasta and all that garbage. Here is article about how to change from seeds to pellets, and there are several types of organic pellets found here:

Switching Birds To Pellets article

Changing diet takes time, so follow directions and do not be in a hurry.

Cockies do not like many fruits and veggies. Fruit and veggies need to be no more than 10-15% of diet with the rest in organic pellets. Feed no people food or junk food of any kind as this messes up their digestion and will make them sick.

Thanks for writing and write back anytime you need to. It is up to you to learn all about your new bird, so get a book or two and make use of the internet to find out more info about your Cockatiel.
