    Oh, and more than that... what's a "cocktail"? That sounds like something from a late night Cinemax movie... lol...

    I have a sun conure in with my cockateils and he protects them. when I reach in to get a cockateil he reaches out like he is gonna bite me. So what do you think of that he watches out for his cockateils.

    I have a cockatiel and a green cheek who live together in a flight cage - but I would definitely say that they are the exception. My cockatiel is a boy (Sumo) and my green cheek is a girl (Aki). Sumo doesn't take any sh*t from Aki and I think that's why it works. They preen each other and they argue, but they get along fabulously. I will say, however, that if they were in a cage even a slight bit smaller that I don't think it would work.

    In terms of intelligence...I'd have to say Aki wins that.

    She can also spin, shake, and wave.

    Sumo is a very talented singer but seems to lack the attention span that Aki has for learning tricks.... every individual is different though!

    Very scary if you ask me!!!
    lol yeah i have heard this to. my friend recently had to leave her cornure, dezzy, at the vet overnight (it had hurt its beak but is fine now), and before she left she had to warn the vet that dezzy sleeps on his back under newspaper, and not to throw him out thinking he was dead!

    Re: Cockatiel vs Conures Intelligence???

    I know this was along time ago. but Conures are parrots & so is Cockatiels, . Keep in mind that conures are more loud, I had a cckatiel at first before a conure. The least favorite thing i dont like about cockatiels is that they dont hold there food like a wallnut or a fruit. they will drop it. Get a conure if you are over 13 years of age and dont get mad if it bites you harder than you thought it would
