Smile Should I get another bird?

Hi everyone

I haven't posted in a really long time but my birds and I are well- Belle, a Myers and Cheeky, a green cheek. Anyway, I would like to get a cockatiel- any thoughts on this combo? Have a great day all!

Tracy - OF COURSE we think you should get another bird! LOL! Cockatiels are wonderful birds! This is probably the wrong group to ask -- we're all ga-ga over birds and MBS (multiple bird syndrome) is running rampant through the whole forum!

Be sure to post some pics!

MBS is an epidemic here... or should I say it is zoonotic here...lol. Whichever we all have it and we all agree that YES you should get another bird.. or two.. or ten....lol

(I have no idea why my font changed...lol)

But you should seriously think this through, do you meet all the requirements it takes to have a tiel?
