Exciting but be prepared for the "Adding a new parrot" crap shoot as far as compatibility.
We are fully prepared for the worst possible out come : expect the worst but hope for the best 😅

Super exciting news, Stitch!! Congrats in advance on your soon-to-be new baby!!

'Tiel puberty is probably one of the less traumatic experiences, at least it always has been for me with mine. The only one i really ever had trouble with was Fang, but only because he fell in love with our "then" 'tiel hen, Twinkle. I don't know that you'd have too much problem with Albie being a hen if you got a 'tiel rooster - but having said that my princess parrot has fallen MADLY in love with my lorikeet rooster, so it goes to show you just never can tell!!

I couldn't even tell my female went through it to be honest, until one day she just started trying to mate with my conure (lying down making noises), but as far as temperament she never changed. I got my male cockatiel when he was three years old so he'd already gone through it, and though both my tiels are hormonal at times, they're both so easy to look after. My female cockatiel has laid eggs in the past but if I tell her to come out of her cage she does with no problems, and the male one just follows her.

I think it depends on the bird but I'm confident that it's far easier than conures

With my hand raised male tiel, puberty was a non-event.
