Cockatiel randy bird syndrome is very common in cockatiels that don't have a compatible partner of the opposite sex and same species, especially during the breeding season. There are many different manifestations of cockatiel randy bird syndrome. Cockatiel Randy Bird Syndrome in male cockatiels often results in significantly different patterns of behavior than seen in female cockatiels. In the accompanying video on Cockatiel Randy Bird Syndrome we see a delightful cockatiel get excited about a foot massager and then having a wonderful time "going to town" on it. The video of Cody is courtesy of Cheryl Willobird with my thanks, and yours too, after you've enjoyed watching it!

Although this video about Cockatiel Randy Bird Syndrome is both funny and amusing, at another level this sort of behaviour is not likely to be seen in nature. Cockatiel Randy Bird Syndrome has lots to do with how cockatiels adapt to situations in which their natural needs from a young age of having a choice of partners of the opposite sex before reaching sexual maturity have not been met. In my book "Caring for Birds with Love and Gratitude" I advise pairing birds after they have been initially hand tamed, with compatible partners of same species and opposite sex, before either has reach ed sexual maturity, if and when possible.
