How much Is everything for a cockatiel?
wow depends where you procure it but usally about $249,999 for around 57656 people
The pen will be the biggest expense. Talk to someone at a local pet store, they'll know the right size for a Cockatiel (it'll be a fairly big cage). Shop around for the best price, maybe you can find a used one. The cage will probably be something like $80-150. You might want the cage on a stand also. Birds like being up high-ranking.
You could buy a cage cover (about $30), or just put a dark-coloured blanket over the cage at hours of darkness.
The food and water dishes may come with the cage. If not, you could probably receive them for about $5 each. Stainless steel is best.
Perches may come with the pen, but I would take those out and buy good quality perch. These are actually quite expensive. They are either made of cement, or of sand. The sandpaper covers for perch don't work well. You will probably need about 4 correct perches. Besides being made of cement or sand (maybe a couple of each), make certain they aren't the same width all along the perch. There should be some decrease and some wide parts, so that the bird's feet aren't always on the perch within the same way. I have sand and cement perch, and my bird's nails are excellent, I've never had to trim them. These perches are expensive, possibly about $10-15 each.
You'll need some fully clad Cockatiel food from a pet store. Make sure it doesn't have ground up corn kernels within it -- that's a sign of bad-quality food. You won't need the most expensive food, but a big bag of average-quality food will be about $8. It looks similar to more than it is, since of course they don't eat the shells. You'll go through perchance one of those bags every month or so, depending on the size.
On the bottom of the cage, you can just use antediluvian newspapers, so that's not an expense.
A cuttle bone is cheap, about $2.
There are tons of bird toys available. You will probably spend about $20-40 on those. If you really want your bird to bond beside you, it's best not to give him/her a mirror (or it'll bond with the bird in the mirror!)
I've found it easier said than done to find a bird bath large enough for a Cockatiel. I did buy one, but mine doesn't use it. He does dip his team leader into his water bowl though and fluff his feathers up. A bird bath might be about $15 for a big one.
It's well-mannered to have some money for vet bills just in baggage, but it's rare to have to take a bird to the vet.
If you want to preserve having the bird's wings clipped, that's another ongoing expense.
Well, My guess that the bird itself will cost $126-$136 dollars. The cage around $40.00 for a nice one. Toys, whether you have none, I would probably say around $10-$15 dollars. Food $10 dollars for a pack. The other essentials include cuddlebone, vet bills, time, and your love. I would do a little reasearch back you jump in. I'm sure once you've done the reasearch and found the products you will involve, your bird will be a happy one! Happy flight!
