well i dont know any site u could go to but if you have any questions im sure i can answer them for you my mom has 21 cockatiels and breeds them.she also has 2 quaker parrots 8 lovebirds 2 green cheek conures 1 jenday conure 8 parakeets 1 ring neck 1 mini macaw and 2 parrotlets........so if you have any questions go ahead and post them an ill be sure to answer them. cockatiels like to be socialized and they are one of the best(affordable) pet birds.we have some that we messed with a whole lot when they were younger and now we only get them out about once a week and they are still as tame as ever.Right now my mom has pairs but no babies yet.We also just got a pair of albinos yesterday.

stha4 - I'd hate to wake up hung over at your mom's place, all that noise would put me over the edge!!

we've had an albino cockateil in our family for about 25 years now...he's got the biggest attitude ever...if he's in the mood you can scratch his head, pick him up and he chirps and talks at you. other times he'll put his head down for a rub and then take a piece out of your finger when you come close enough!lol...always been that way...the dog won't even mess with him...he'll swoop down and attack your head if he's having a bad day!
he's not a very noisy bird though....he whistles tunes that we taught him occasionally but other than that he just makes clucking and chirping noises with the odd 'hello baby' hee, hee

haha.... man thx for all the info.... ive allways been a reptile man and a dog and cat man myself... had no clue really what so ever about any kinds of birds.... i had a parakete when i was about 6 but it got out the back door (shows how good i am with birds lol) but ya... my lil cuz is kinda like a lil sister to me... she lived with us most of her life cuz he mom was like a dauter to my mom..... but any ways.... i would like to learn a little bit about birds so i can help her out... my whole family allways comes to me when they want info on animals cuz i used to work in a petstore but the only animals i really had anything to do with were the reptiles.... i did a little bit in the bird room and helped some eggs hatch but thats about it..... but i just want to really make sure she gets the best possible bird she can from a good breader.... i think i might go get her the bird magazine and mabey buy her year subscription cuz reptiles (the magazine i get) sometimes has great info on an animal i might be interested in... and in the back there is allways a huge list of private breaders... so my guess would be that "birds" has the same info, etc..... so think you all for your help and if i do get anymore ?'s i no i can come here (allways have cuz there is allways some one here that knows what i need) so think you again
