CockatielsHabitat, Exercise & Play


A wire cage with a climbing bar is perfect for Cockatiels. The size of the cage depends on the amount of cockatiels, if you are planning on getting one cockatiel the cage should be a minimum of (60cm x 40cm x 60cm), the minimum size cage for two cockatiels is (100cm x 70cm x 130cm).

The base of the cage should be rectangular, with sand sheets or beach chippings used as bedding.

A large perch should be provided to prevent the cockatiels claws from getting to long.

Exercise and Play

No matter how big a Cockatiel's cage is, exercise is important and they should be let out of their cage at least for one hour a day if their wings are clipped. If their wings are not clipped a play pen is an option. Your house should be bird proof to prevent the cockatiel from flying away (i.e. windows/doors closed in the house).

Toys should be provided in its cage to occupy the cockatiel- for example, wooden ladders and swings.
