Hi I’m new and I have lots of question on how I should introduce cockatiels together.
I currently have one cockatiel named Sushi. She turned one in October and I know she gets lonely when I’m gone so I wanna get her a friend. I won’t be getting her a new friend until summer time so anywhere around (June-august). I just wanna do my research already. What I would want is get a male cockatiel. I read that getting a young male could make my girl frustrated and aggressive so I thought I’ll look for an older male. I know there are breeding concerns and I have some experience with breeding parakeets but obviously I’m gonna try to avoid breeding. I’m just not sure if that’s the right move what are the pros & cons? Or should I just get her a female friend? I guess my question is what cockatiel gender would be best? Please tell me the dos and don’ts

If you don't want breeding the safest bet is a female. Remember, getting a friend for your bird might not always work. Sometimes they end up hating each other and then you have to keep them in separate cages to keep from plucking each other. You could also get a male but keep them in separate cages and they could only interact when you let them out.
