Hello! I'm very new to Avian Avenue, so if this isn't the correct place to ask this please inform me and I'll move it! So, about two years ago I decided I wanted a bird. And thankfully, I have done plenty of research on their care and what a huge commitment getting ANY bird is since then because I was ridiculously unprepared. And after two years, I finally feel prepared to take on a small bird! My question to you is this: Lovebird or Cockatiel? I love both species and know the summaries of both of their general personalities and temperaments. I want to know you guy's personal experience with one or both of these birds. Despite the bird I decide to get, I plan on working with him every day and he will have a very large cage with lots of toys. Are Lovebirds truly as affectionate as I've read they are? Are Cockatiels? Is biting really a big issue with lovebirds, I've heard conflicting reports?
