Cockatoos for Sale
Cockatoos are recognized for being charming, affectionate birds. They are naughty birds with an affectionate personalities and a humour.
Cockatoos are mischievous birds with a friendly disposition and a sense of humor. That may make them seem like ideal pets, but things aren’t always as straightforward as they appear. These birds require a lot of attention, and if they don’t get it, they will become irritable. They start screaming, becoming aggressive and confused, and even attacking their owners.
A great start is a key to a great Cockatoo as a companion bird. Cockatoos are known to develop phobias and exhibit behaviors such as plucking and screaming.
Cockatoos have a voice that sounds like “Cousin It” and are known for being charming, affectionate birds. They’re also known for being extremely cuddly birds who spend as much time as possible “on” their people.
All cockatoo species can be found in Australia and the islands off the coast of Oceania.
Smaller birds, such as Goffin’s Cockatoo, have an average lifespan of about 40 years. The larger cockatoos, such as the Moluccan species, live for about 80 years. In captivity, the majority of the birds die young, emphasizing the importance of proper care in order to ensure a long life.
Cockatoos are found in around 21 different species around the world. While the majority of these are white, others are gray, pink, black, and deep blue in color. These birds, which are native to the Indonesian Islands, make lovely pets. Cockatoos such as Bare Eyed Cockatoos, Black Palm Cockatoos, Ducorp Cockatoos, Goffin Cockatoos, Sulpher Crested Cockatoos, Major Mitchell Cockatoos, Moluccan Cockatoos, Rose Breasted Triton Cockatoos, and Umbrella Cockatoos are available for purchase.
The Moluccan Cockatoo, larger sulfur-crested Cockatoo, and umbrella cockatoo are the smallest of the bunch, while the lesser sulfur-crested Cockatoo and Goffin’s Cockatoo are the largest.
Cockatoos are friendly and energetic birds. They are highly affectionate and form strong bonds with their owners. However, because of their friendliness and desire for affection, they require a lot of time from their owners. When cockatoos are deprived of love, they grow depressed or exhibit neurotic tendencies. They can be extremely intelligent, playful, mischievous, and boisterous. They are a little excitable, and they don’t always get along with small children. The powerful beak of a cockatoo can hurt little, prodding hands.
A nutritious Cockatoo diet includes a wide variety of fresh fruits, veggies, and nuts. Cooked grains including barley, oats, brown rice, veggie pasta, and sweet potato are also good options. Pellets* and a little amount of seed should be added to your diet at least once a week.
Cockatoos will cheerfully eat fresh vegetables, cereals, fruits, and other similar items. Bird pellets can also be added to their diet. Seeds and seed mixtures have a high-fat content, so be cautious while feeding them. As a special treat, nuts can be offered. Never feed them chocolates, fried meals, alcoholic beverages, or salted foods such as potato chips or pretzels.
Cockatoos behave similarly to humans in that they require a lot of love. You must not disregard them in any manner because they are caring.
A cockatoo should be given plenty of exercise opportunities. Outside of the cage, for 3 to 4 hours every day is good. If it isn’t possible, at least an hour on a Play Gym with time for social interaction will suffice.
The greater the size of the cage, the better. Large cockatoos, such as Umbrellas and Moluccans, require a cage that is at least 40″ wide x 30″ deep. Cockatoos like the Goffin and Ducorps may live in cages as little as 36″ wide x 24″ deep, but bigger is always preferable! For ALL sizes of Cockatoos, I recommend a 40″ wide x 36″ deep enclosure. They enjoy the extra area, which allows for plenty of toys and perches.
In terms of habitat, you’ll need a cage that’s no smaller than 24′′ x 36′′ x 48′′ in size. The bar spacing should be between 34 and 1 inch. If you have a huge cockatoo, you’ll need a cage that’s around 24′′ x 48′′ x 48′′ with 1′′ to 1.5′′ bar spacing. Because cockatoos have a very tough beak, you should invest in solid cages made of wrought iron, stainless steel, and other materials.
You should provide plenty of toys for your bird to play with. They are ferocious chewers who enjoy destroying stuff. As a result, it makes sense to provide them with softwood toys, tanned vegetable leather, ropes, bells, and even cardboard to play with. Hanging toys and toys that the bird can take up with its beak should be included in their toy collection.
