Breeding Information

Hens are capable of breeding for up to fifteen years if they are cared for properly. During the first breeding season, it is not uncommon for cockatiels breeding to abandon their eggs and to even eat or traumatize the offspring. In most cases, breading cockatiels is simple, but in certain pairs infertility may be an issue. Cockatiels are best breed during early Spring to late Autumn but if they are kept indoors and the environment is correct, they can breed at any time. Never allow cockatiels to breed more than twice per year.

Breeding hens need the proper diet to include calcium and protein, as well as a mineral block. A hen should be offered grains and green vegetables. A proper diet is essential to prevent egg binding and for healthy off spring.
