1. All About Cockatoos -
Information on behavior and diet for the larger species.
Beautiful and Cuddly.
These are the words normally used to describe one of natures most unusual parrots, the Moluccan Cockatoo . It's unusual in that it's one of the few "lap birds", and acts more like a dog than a bird sometimes. As babies, Moluccans so easily touch your heart that it's hard to walk away from them without taking one home. Their liquid eyes look like black pools of inquisitiveness as they carefully study your facial expressions, and you seem to be able to look right into their very souls. Both Moluccans and Umbrella cockatoos possess a sweetness that few parrots can match, for a while . As all good things must come to an end however, so goes the sweetness as these babies mature. This is not to say that there will be a complete change, but the odds are great that the 'Too you'll wind up-with years later is not the sweetness and light you brought home . Do all birds change? No. Will most change to some degree? You'd better believe it! And it's these changes that sometimes drive owners to rescues

Outside of Australia, the Moluccan and Umbrella Cockatoos also make a lovely pets but are rarely kept as pets in Australia due to their expense. The most obvious external feature of any cockatoo is the erectile crest that raises immediately after alighting and when alarmed or excited. The strong, heavy beak of the cockatoo is used to crack large seeds but can also produce a powerful and destructive bite. Consistent training from a young age will help ensure potential cockatoo owners enjoy a bird free of this destructive habit. Hand reared male

3. Cockatoos
Information regarding cockatoos and the various species.
Cockatoos!! Species: There are 17 species of cockatoos, most of which are in the genus Cacatua. Most are colored mainly in white, but others come in grays and pinks, blacks, and in the Palm's case, deep blue. Origin: Australia and the surrounding islands. Size: Ranging from the Goffin's, at about 12"-13", to the huge Goliath Palm cockatoo, at 27" long. Life Span: 40-60 years and up. There have been some reported cases of cockatoos living to be over 100, but most of these are unsubstantiated. Price: Expect to pay anywhere from $400 for an inexpensive Goffin's from a breeder, to around $1,000 for most cockatoos, to $1,500-$3,000 for a Galah or Leadbeater's, and up... Palms and Blacks would probably cost you around $15,000 or more apiece! Buying:
Cockatoos are probably some of the top birds that are re-sold as adults, when their owners get tired of their demands or find themselves in a situation where they can no longer cope with them. These birds *usually*, but not always, have some sort of behavior problem that is the reason for giving the bird up. Often, this is screaming. If you're considering one of these second-time-around birds, find out everything possible about the bird, and be ready to deal with some unforeseen behavior problems. Diet: Cages/Supplies: The larger the cage, the better, of course! Cockatoos are big birds! Goffin's, Galahs, and Lesser Sulphur Cresteds usually do fine in something about 2' x 2' x 3', but most larger cockatoos should really be in something at least 2' x 3' x 3' or larger. Plenty of toys are practically a necessity; cockatoos are BIG chewers and expect to replace these pretty routinely! A playstand is also a wonderful thing, and allows your bird someplace to be when he's not on the cage and you don't want him right on you (although that's probably where he'd prefer to be!).

    Family: Cacatuidae
    Subfamily: Cacatuinae
    Cockatoos are extremely affectionate, their feathers are very soft, usually with beautiful colors....on top of that, they are very intelligent and inquisitive birds!
    Cockatoos love to show off and make comical displays with outspread wings, head bobbing, dancing and loud calls. They are very active and curious about their environment. Happy cockatoos spend most of their waking time performing, or examining and manipulating their toys and other cage objects.
    A single cockatoo will thrive as a your pet if you devote time and attention to it, playing with it and sharing affections on a regular daily basis. However, two pet cockatoos are ideal if you are not able to devote so much time and attention as the bird will demand. Two will help to prevent bad habits from developing by a bored bird, such as screeching and feather plucking.

Printouts Cockatoos are crested birds from rainforests , dry regions, and fields of Indonesia and Australia . There are many different species of cockatoos. Cockatoos are long-lived birds. Many species of cockatoo are endangered because of loss of habitat, being shot as agricultural pests, and the sale of the young as pets. Anatomy : The Cockatoo averages about 12 to 15 inches (31-38 cm) long. These parrots range in color from white, pink, yellow, gray, and black; they all have a large, feathery head crest, and a curved bill. Males sometimes have darker feathers or eyes than females; otherwise, males and females are hard to distinguish.

Goffin Cockatoos
The Goffin Cockatoo is native to the Tenimber Islands of Indonesia and are sometimes known as the Tanimbar Cockatoo. Also native to Indonesian islands are the muluccan cockatoos. Many other species of cockatoos are native to Australia, like the black cockatoo.
The scientific name of the goffin cockatoo is Cacatua goffini. While the sulfur crested cockatoo is one of the largest cockatoos, goffins are one of the smallest of all cacatuinae and will reach a length of twelve to thirteen inches. Unlike other cockatoos, like the umbrella cockatoo, the crest of the goffin cockatoo is fairly small. The crest is a collection of feathers on the head that can be raised or lowered.
< The goffin cockatoo is a mostly white bird with pink or salmon colored feathers between the eyes and the beak. The feathers of the crest that are closest to the birds head are also a pink or salmon color, as are the neck feathers. The pink crest feathers are usually hidden by the white outside feathers of the crest and will usually only be seen when the crest is extended.
Like the palm cockatoo, The Goffin Cockatoo is classed as a Near Threatened species because of illegal hunting and loss of habitat. Due to increasing encroachment on its habitat, this bird is in jeopardy of becoming extinct.

    Offers african greys, cockatoos, and green wing macaws.
    Welcome to The Parrot's Perch Website! I'm Tina Usher, and all of my life I have been captivated by all types of birds. I am a small aviary just outside of Chicago and I have been breeding the large parrots since 1981. I specialize in Congo African Greys, Moluccan, Umbrella and Medium Sulphur Crested (Elenora) Cockatoos and Green Wing Macaws. My home raised, hand-fed babies are well adjusted, gentle and loving. My clients rave about how much larger and more outgoing their parrots are compared to other pet birds they see. I also provide in- your -home grooming and behavioral consultations. Seeing the need, I am now offering care, training and behavior workshops to help bird owners mend and/or improve their relationships with their avian pals. I'm using my education, training, experience and love for our birds to teach people how to understand and live happily with their avian companions.

    Rose-breasted Cockatoo -
    Breeding the Beautiful Galah By Dale R. Thompson In Australia, the Rose-breasted Cockatoo is known as the "Galah." It is found in the wild in the multi-thousands. For bird watchers and visitors to Australia, the Galah is truly a fantastic sight to see. They are most often observed in groups, both small and large. When seen in the hundreds, whether in trees or flying in the air, it becomes a memorable experience. For the Australian aviculturist, the Galah is not a prized bird. Because of their great numbers in the wild where they are often considered an agricultural pest by some of the grain producing farmers, this cockatoo is worth almost nothing in captivity. If kept at all, it is usually as a pet. The value of th e Galah or Rose-breasted Cockatoo is well illustrated by the personal experience I observed while I was visiting a Sydney pet store. A 12-year-old boy came into the shop with a tame Galah that was kept in a 12-X 14-X 18-inch cage. He wanted to sell to the manager of the pet store but was turned down. After some discussion, the boy traded his tame Galah for one gray Cockatiel and one female Red-rumped Parakeet. Although this was an astonishing transaction to me, the boy seemed delighted with the trade. When discussing the situation with the boy (who at first seemed reluctant to talk), he related that he had removed the Galah (he referred to it a "cocky") from a nest in a nest in the wild, hand raised it and then had become tired of it.
