Hello everyone! My husband and I were blessed with a wonderful cockatiel, Arthur, about a month ago. This bird has completely turned our life around and has been amazing to us: tame, sweet, cuddly -- everything we could have hoped for and more. Recently we were considering getting another cockatiel because of how good our experience has been so far. However we're concerned that our Arthur will take to the new bird and forget about us. We give Arthur a lot of attention and aren't looking for a friend for him. If they get on, that would be great, but, if they leave us, we would be somewhat heartbroken.. We wanted to ask: -- Has anyone added cockatiels to their flock and what have your experiences been? -- Would you recommend waiting about a year or more before adding more cockatiels, so that the bond with the current bird would be more established? Or does it not matter? -- Are there any techniques that can be used to create a bond between us and the two birds? (For example, letting them out separately at first) The birds will be housed in separate cages. Our breeder said that they have a good match for us: another placid and gentle bird that likes to snuggle with people. It sounds wonderful, but we are still very nervous that we will lose our Arthur.
