PLEASE do not put a cockatiel in a cage with a conure! I know some
birds can probably be trusted, but you should not take the chance
of one of the birds getting hurt. I know my conure can get moody at
times and would have no problem taking a bite out of whoever comes
near him. Conures have such big beaks compared to a cockatiel's
that it just isn't safe.
