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.

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.
