We rescued a pair of cockatiels, and our now late female, Chloe, was the most loving, docile and sweet bird you'd ever want to meet.

She was lovely. Very affectionate. She could be a bit of a pest at times, but not nearly as much of a nuisance as the males can be. She didn't speak or whistle much, either. She was very quiet, which is good if you live in a building where crabby neighbours might be a concern.

Frankly I don't see what benefit you get from a male that's so much more important than a female. Females CAN be taught to speak also, though they usually don't speak as clearly.

I never taught any of my birds to talk anyway - they're birds, I like their BIRD sounds, if I wanted someone to talk to I'd find someone to talk to, like another human being.

I don't keep cockatiels any more. They're small parrots but still large enough that I don't feel I can provide them a properly large cage - and I do not and have never allowed my birds to fly around loose. I don't like wing clipping either. Nothing larger than a parakeet here any more.
