Breeding Notes: Cockatiel breeding can be a very rewarding experience. Cockatiels will readily nest provided they have a nest box and some material to construct the nest from. They lay one egg every other day until they have laid about four to seven eggs. The incubation period is 17 - 22 days. After hatching the young birds will open their eyes at 9 days of age.

After about 18 days the orange cheek patch will appear on the babies. At about 30 days they will look like adult birds, and will fledge at about 35 days of age.
