Aloha from The Bird Guy! Cockatoos are really the best bird for a pet in my opinion! They are like kids! They need alot of attention and can be a bit noisy but oh so lovable!!!! :) So if you have the time for a great pet cockatoos are swell! Best to get them very young and hand feed if you can and treat it well and you'll have a super animal for a long time. At www.birdguyhawaii.com you'll see some of the others. Come to Hawaii and visit us! Aloha!!

I have a wild caught rescue Goffins named Beeker, there are a few things you left out on here. They are little locksmiths, and with rescues and wild caught Goffins, threy require they same amount of space and attention as a child.

We have an Umbrella Cockatoo that was given to us a few months ago. She is 7 years old and has brought so much happiness to our lives. When we are not home, her cage has a box in it with toys, balls and wooden clothespins. She loves to go in the box and throw all her toys out. She also chews on the wooden clothespins which I replace everyday. The box, toys and wooden clothespins were suggested to me by her previous owner. She also goes in her plastic swimming pool outside and tosses her toys all around in the water! Scrambled eggs and apples are some of her favorite foods among a few. She is a very loveable and cuddly bird and I'm so happy that we "adopted" her!

Dakota Bird,

She was adopted at three years old, and is the sweetest thing you can imagine. I've learned to "ration" my time with her to a few hours aday, so she is used to being alone at times. I think this is best if your cockatoo can adapt to this schedule, or you may end up needing to spend every minute of every day with your parrot. By all reports she is happy and well adjusted, and loves to go places with me, and meet people. She attends our local parade each july forth. She also visits schools, nursing homes and libarary. She is extremely gentle and loves to cuddle.

Here is a pic from our parade if anyone cares to download

She brightens up the lives of everyone she meets.

ps. note to editor, feel free to remove the line and download info, its not a full "url" but noticed your rules. I just wanted to share her pic.

My cockatoo, Kiki was very nice, she knew how to say alot of words including knowing my children by their names. She would even say "I got to go to the bath room". She could say almost anything and would make you laugh and then she would laugh at you. She was a real sweetie. She was our best friend and now she's gone. She pass away 06/12/2006 and will truely be missed. We loved her very much. She will always be in our hearts. Maybe one day we'll get another Cockatoo. Kiki was great.

I have a sesser sulphur crested cockatoo named Coqui and she is a sweetheart. Unfortunately, she was mistreated from the time she was weaned until we bought her 3 years later. Her previous owners spent a fortune when they first bought her (we have their receipts) on toys, food, a cage, etc. But by the time we got her, the only thing in her very dirty cage was a 1' long cement perch. She was never allowed out of the cage, and we assume she might have been abused because she is very neurotic, and frightens easily. We have had her for 8 months now, and last week, I was finally able to pick her up and sit her on my lap without her freaking out. She won't let us take her out of her cage, but she enjoys jumping around on it when she is out. She is beautiful and very loving, and she lets us scratch her behind her head while she is on or in her cage. It's taking time, but our little Coqui is very much worth it !!!

We got our cockatoo about 3 months ago, she was a rescue bird, that our friends sister had, she was no longer able to care for it, because of fear, the bird put her in the hospital, than our friend had her for about a year, she screamed the whole time there, his daughter has ear problems. As animal lovers my husband fell in love with her and kept talking about her, i went and met her and said than yes we will take her, she is so loving she makes kissing noises and i have taught her to blow kisses which is hillarious, she has a very large vocab, unfortunately she has a really bad potty mouth, and says swears in a different voice than her sweet i love you voice, she screams if you walk in the door, and don't go see her first, she loves attention, but will and does bite, man she like a snapping turtle with wings, she had done a lot of plucking at her previous home, but hasn't since she lives here, and her hair is growing back, she is loved very much, can't imagine life without her, she seems to play favorites my husband and i have to take turns caring for her, i have always been able to clean her cage and feed her but after sticking her in the bathtub, after we first got her she was not white, she hated me, would scream when she saw me attack at my hands when i would feed her grab at my clothes through the cage pull my hair, now she is nice to me and giving my husband the attitude, she chased him through the house the other day, and was biting at his feet and pants, she has not bit our children 14,12, and 9, they have all held her when she is in her loving mood, and are very aware of her bite for i have a huge scar on my arm. Having a greater sulfer cockatoo, never brings a dull moment, and she now's how to get your attention, my son screams mmmmaaaaaammmmm, sounds like a goat, and i hate it, he has always done that to get on my nerves, the bird is now doing it.
