When considering what to feed cockatiels, you need to think about what cockatiels would generally consume out there in the wild. Finding a diet that best suits their natural diet will help avoid future health problems and complications.
Cockatiels are generally the most easy pets to care for, and if looked after well they hardly ever get sick.
Most times cockatiels are happy with a mixture of sunflower and budgie seeds, but it is always good to offer your bird a variety of different food types, like fresh vegetables and fruit. Make sure these are as fresh as possible and avoid letting them feed on servings that have gone bad. It is best to feed cockatiels during morning or evening hours. This is because those are the times they would normally forage for food out there in the wild.
