I have a cockatoo and he is very "attention wanting" Most people say that they are sweet kind natured birds but my cockatoo IS NOT!! Unless you hold him every second of the day he can get very grumpy and bite. He definitly has an attitude. The chewing part is correct, my bird has got to be immortal, he has eaten everything in the book that will kill a bird and hes still living. He has gotten a hold of cigerettes, plant fertilizer, permenent markers, elecrtrical wires, you name hes eaten it. He also has a very strange behavioral problem, he hates men, he will only go to women. When we first had him he loved my father to death and wouldnt let anyone touch him. It lasted all of about a week. He also likes trying to climb the lamp and he likes licking the light bulb when its like really hot, is this strange?

hi - we have just brought our first cockatoo, it is 16 weeks and very inquisitive.

We have called him cheeky, he has a nice new cage and on day 2 is taking sunflower seeds from all the family we have 3 children who are 12 13 and 14 - they all love him.

He was dancing tonight and pulling his wings back and clapping, he is a real entertainer.

We moved to Brisbane from UK in october 2004 it is now nearly february 2005 and we have just settled in our house, and Cheeky has complete our family, we are so happy and he now takes preference over the TV as he is more entertaining.

We have had Zeus, our female cockatoo, since she was a baby ... her feathers were just coming in .. boy she was ugly! LOL We allowed the pet store to wean her until she dropped her lunch meal then I took her home and hand fed her the rest of the way. She is now aprox 3 going on 4 years now. She is the sweetest bird a person could ask for. She is not usual in the cockatoos as in that she is not a big yeller .. although when she actually does decide to scream she makes up for all her past silence ... right now she is over preening herself so we are trying to discover why she is doing this. But she is a big baby and would suggest to anyone looking for a snuggle bird to consider the Umbi ... but please research your purchase and understand the cockatoo before purchasing.

My mollucan cockatoo Sulu is one of the most active birds I own. if she is not chewing all the wood in the house, she is screaming "I am cute, you are not" at the top of her lungs. She is just like a two year old and she makes you work hard, but she is worth the effort.

I just received a moluccan cockatoo whos name is lucifer from an animal rescue. his previous owner had him for 13 yrs and she passed away. he seems very sad and doesnt want me touching him. he will let me feed him from my hand, but that is about it.
i think he is lonely and would love to get him a friend. i spend alot of time with him but i think he needs more. if u know of anyone who cant care for theirs, please email me at: mindymm24@bellsouth.net thank u,
mindy

We have a rose breasted cockatoo for over 3 years. She is very caring and loves to be around people and other animals. She is over 3 and a half years old. We talk her out whenever we can (most times) with a harness. This type of parrot is the best we have ever seen!!! She will be with us always and she is a great alarm system when any one or other animal is around the home! These bird are not biters but will peck sometimes for play!

I have a male White Cockatoo his name is Alba. He is two years old. From what I discover the White Cockatoo is the best bird for petting. This is because compared to the other parrots that I have eg: Orange Winged & Jardine Parrot, the White Cockatoo is the best.
