Hey there, I'm new to this forum and new to having a bird.
My wife adopted a cockatiel for me.
She's a 9 month old white Lutino.
I've had her for almost a month and just going slowly to earn her trust.
So far I've been successful in that. Now she sits on my shoulder and grooms my hair and my beard, mustache.
She always flies around and when i raise my hand she lands on it.
My question is?
Would it be OK to get another cockatiel, as a companion this soon?
Would I lose her love and affection?
Would she trust me?
Or would she attack and bully around the other bird out of jealousy?

Have them in seperate cages at first and put them in the same room so they will slowly warm up to each other, also, earn the othe rbirds trust as well and you should be fine, both my cockatiels are pretty bonded to me
