Hi everyone I just bought my first cockatiel today. He's grey with white spots so I think he's a pied. I don't even know if he, is a he. His name is Bekham....Anywho, I've had cockatiels when I was a kid... but now my question to everyone is.... maybe in the future I would like to get more cockatiels.... how would I go about possible aggression, breeding??? Or should I just keep them all in separate cages? Cuz honestly I don't want them to breed.. bekham is now my babyboy :love: and I don't want him to think when I get the others that they're taking his place. I don't want him to be territorial..... maybe some suggestions??????
Or should I just stick with him for the next 25 years????? lmao

Your best bet is to get to know your new bird first and see how much you enjoy bird ownership before you think about getting more. You can learn a lot about the problems and joys of multiple birds just by hanging around message boards and reading what other people have to say.

There's no way to predict whether any two (or more) birds will get along with each other. Maybe they will and maybe they won't. Birds WILL be territorial because that's their instinct, but with a careful introduction you can sometimes avoid setting off this instinct. The surest way to avoid breeding is to have all same-sex birds, although you might still see some sexual behavior and if you have hens they might lay infertile eggs.
