I have had my umbrella cockatoo for almost four years. We named her Rocket because she was born on July 4. She says about ten words. She is a real cuddle bug. The only complaint I have is when I pay $30.00 for a toy and she chews it up in less than a day. But, she is a real sweetheart and I am glad I have her.

This is in memory of Joey, who died in a house fire on Dec 15, 2005.He was overcome by smoke before he could be saved. I have owned and raised birds all my life, but Joey was the best of them all. He was only five years old when he died, but his vocabulary surpassed any bird I have ever owned, including African Grays. Joey talked in sentences: "Come over here right now, come on, come on. You know better than that. What are you doing? You know that's bad." He would continue like this for 30 minutes at a time, and rarely screemed. Joey did tricks, but only those he taught himself. His most unusual behavior was a total act of trust. He would come running at a very fast pace from my feet, and literately throw himself upside down by flipping into the air and landing on my shoulder. Many times I had to catch him or he would have fallen on the floor. I bought Joey when he was 4 months old, and never in his short life did he ever bite or nip anyone. Words cannot express how much I miss this little guy, but he will always be in my heart.

We have an unbrella that was caught out in the wild. we got her a year ago and she is a sweety. 2 minutes before my dad pulls up from work she gets annoying and starts squacking. she loves everybody and always is showing us how beautiful she is. every time we're eating she comes and eats off our plates. We put her outside in her tree but since we havent clipped her wings she likes to fly to the top of this big tree next to our house and sleep. she alays comes back. We take her on many of the family trips. she has become our other sister, she does some weird things though.

I have a Rose-breasted Cockatoo named Jaimie and a Camelot Macaw named Sir Lancelot. A very sweet bird that is very happy to sit on my arm all day and coo to me. I purchased her as a baby from a breeder about 6 years ago. I had some doubts, but now I understand that I would never have lived if I hadn't gotten Sir Lancelot ad Jaimie.

Lewey's owner - 2006-03-28
I have a male Umbrella cockatoo named Salsa, a male Moluccan Cockatoo named Lewey, and a male Blue and Gold macaw named Max. I have never found a better bird than Lewey. He absolutely adores me. He likes my Umbrella Cockatoo and gets along with my Macaw. he adores everyone he meets and is quite a talker. He says: I love you. hi! night-night! You're a cutie! I'm a baby. Good baby! Lewey. Please? Cuddle time! Tickle time! GO AWA-A-A-A-A-Y!....and more. He makes different sounds from around the house and sings opera to get attention. But boy, can he be LOUD!! Anyone getting this bird should become used to the sound before purchasing. Otherwise, I love Lewey.

I have a male Umbrella Cockatoo (Eean), a female Citron-crested Cockatoo (Lucy), and a male Muluccan Cockatoo (Widget). Eean is a sweet, shy, loving, well behaved bird that says 'hello' and 'please?' Lucy is a worked up, active, outgoing, one peson bird that won't take guff from other people. And when she wants to bite, believe me, she can bite! She is rather persuasive and when she wants something she will go great distances to get it. She does not say anything.
Widget is a very handsome boy that I got from a friend that was going to take the bird to the shelter two days after she got him. That's sad.
You know the saying,"You eat like a bird?" Well, that's rubbish! My birds eat like horses. Their daily fruits, veggies, and healthy foods is only a little of the food they get daily besides their pellets.
These birds are definitely NOT for beginners. But once you've done your homework, you are looking at a rich life with your cockatoo.

I have had my cockatoo angel for about 3 weeks now. I got her for my birthday and I love her very much. She already dances and is now making funny little noises that kind of sound like she is trying to talk. She loves being scrached all over wings neck chest everywhere. She is so funny when she is on the floor she jumps around and acts like she is trying to be sneaky. I have recently found out that she absolutley loves celery. She shreads it up into little strings. She also eats carrots,cabbage,lettuce,brocolli,oranges and a bunch more things. I love spending time with her she is the cutest thing ever!

My mother acquired her "babygirl" from her cousin who has just recently passed. I have never taken up much time with her on my visits, but this trip I have fallen in love with her. Thule is her name and she is beautiful. I was given my first kiss from her last night and she perched on my shoulder this morning. These birds are so beautiful. She tells us that she loves us and plays peek-a-boo with my kids. I am seriously thinking of getting a mollucan of my own, if I can't take Thule with me!
