    Well, our new cockatiel has stopped hissing when we go near her cage! Thank you for the great advice. It seems like no matter how many animals you have there is always something to learn about bringing a new one into your home. We placed the bird cage next to the computer in the dining room. She seems to really like being near everyone. She has caught on fast to squaking with the dogs when we come in the door!! I love animals.

    [​IMG] most pets seem to do well when they can bond in with the family and get to see people often.
    Thats the reason we keep our dog inside, she's part of our family and we treat her as such. She sleeps in our room and has really bonded well - she thinks she's our child. [​IMG]

    Im glad ur cockatiel is starting to enjoy itself with u. Now that is next to the computer enjoy all the sounds it will make of the keys and the beeps from the cmoputer it will imitate. Dusty was in the living room next to the kitchen and imitated the sound of the microwave. He is a white faced cockatiel.
