cockatiels are not noisy at all. they just chirp and sing. no loud screeching like the bigger parrots. they need more attention than a reptile, but again not as much attention as the bigger parrots. the are very friendly birds, and like to be scratched behine the head.

He will be yours, faithful and true to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion."-Unknown
