Cockatiels not happy
by: Tracie

It is hard to make recommendations on what you provided, so I will just say what I think best.

Make sure they have a very large cage, like a 24x22 at least. Make sure they are not male and female, you don't want eggs and the troubles that come with breeding birds.

Make sure there are a variety of perches throughout the cage. There should be some Rope Perches , some n natural wood branches, and a Polly's Pastel Pedicure Perch at the feeding station.

You never know what kind of toys birds like, so have some toys they can shred, some they can chew and maybe one that makes noise.

If you just got the birds, they may be quiet for a few days, because they don't know the environment and don't feel safe yet. Sit near the cage, talk calmly to them, and move slowly around them.

We have several articles on training and nutrition at this Parrot Training page link.
