I'm looking for opinions on pet birds. I recently lost my cockatiel. He was almost 25 years old. It's so quiet in the house. Never realized how much noise he made during the day. I grew up with parakeets and have had two cockatiels. Like them both. I did prefer the female cockatiel over the male, but they were both good birds. I looked at Orange Chin Parakeets, Pacific Parrotlets and Quakers. It seemed that the Quakers might be louder than I would like, but they seemed to be nice birds. The other two were both really nice. I seemed to be drawn to the Parrotlets more even though they are small. Would like a bird that I can handle and teach things to, but that doesn't need constant attention. The noise level of the male cockatiel was fine. He did learn to scream like a neighbors parrot and that was annoying, but he did it less and less once away from the other bird. Talking ability is nice, but not high on my list. Any suggestions are very welcome.
