"I want a bird that is cuddly!"
( Oh God , Here we go again... )
I received this note from Marc at "
A 503-C NON-PROFIT AVIAN RESCUE ORGANIZATION "You won't believe the number of people looking to get rid of their cockatoos RIGHT NOW! I have NO homes or space available. We are heading for a crisis and I fear the worst is about to happen...." "After working with parrots for 30 years, I consider the Moluccan to be the most difficult of all the parrot species to successfully keep as a companion." Liz Wilson Most people not familiar with large parrots fail to see the "Big Picture" 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

2. Cockatoos
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
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!).

Sulphur Crested Cockatoos - Cockatoos Of Australia - Pet Birds. Greater Sulphur Crested Species
Cacatua galerita
    White Cockatoo (Australia usage), Cocky, Greater Sulfur-crested Cockatoo (USA usage).
    Length about 50 cm (20"), weight about 700 to 950 grams
    The Sulphur-crested Cockatoo is monomorphic when young, but females may develop a lighter eye colour at around 8 or more years old.
    Four subspecies are recognised, only two of which are native to Australia. These are the nominate subspecies, Cacatua galerita galerita , which is found in eastern Australia and is the one most common in aviculture, and C. g. fitzroyi , from northern and north-western Australia. C. g. galerita varies from fitzroyi by having a white eye ring rather than pale blue, by having a paler yellow colour to the ear coverts, and by having shorter crest feathers. The other two subspecies are Cacatua g. triton and Cacatua g. eleonora , which are only found in Indonesia and Papua-New Guinea to the north of Australia, and are not considered here.
    The Sulphur-crested Cockatoo is one of the icons of Australia's birds, instantly invoking images of the Australian bush. It is a common and widespread species, extending from Tasmania through Victoria and New South Wales to the northern most tip of Queensland, and though the northern part of the Northern Territory into the Kimberly area of Western Australia. Introduced populations are established near Perth, in Western Australia, and in New Zealand. The two Australian subspecies meet around the Gulf of Carpenteria, in northern Queensland, where their ranges overlap

Jay Misonznick
Cockatoos account for 17 of the 330 known species of parrots. These species once occurred naturally in Australia, New Guinea, the islands of Indonesia, the Solomon Islands, and the Philippines. The Australian species include the Greater Sulfur Crested, the Gang Gang, Galah (Rose Breasted) Leadbeaters (Major Mitchell's), Bare-eyed, Slenderbilled (Longbilled), Glossy Black, Red-tailed Black, Yellow-tailed Black, White-tailed Black, and the Black Palm. The Indonesian, New Guinea, and other island species include the Umbrella, Lesser Sulfur, Citron, Moluccan, Goffins, Triton, Eleonora, Blue-eyed, Ducrops, and Red-vented.
All cockatoos have moveable crest feathers. Cockatoos not only differ from other parrots because they are crested, but for a few exceptions, they are either black or white. This is caused by the lack of the Dyck texture in their feathers. In other parrots the presence of this feature produces color by the way it reflects light. Cockatoos also lack oil glands, but they do produce a fine powder which is the result of the breakdown of their down feathers. You can always tell if there's a cockatoo in the house look at the TV; it has white powder on the screen. A word of warning this powder can aggravate respiratory problems in some people.
Domestically bred hand-fed babies acquired just after weaning make the best pets. Unweaned babies (still eating formula) can cost less but it is best to let experienced individuals handle the weaning process properly. The larger species, such as the Greater Sulfur Crested or the Moluccan could cost from $1800 to $3000. Smaller members of this group can run from $800 up to $1800.

7. Intro Kakadu
Es wird ein kritischer Bericht von J. Skydiver Waters zur Haltung von Kakadus als Haustier pr¤sentiert und auf die m¶glichen NegativFolgen f¼r diese Tiere hingewiesen.
Fassung September 2001
Bei einigen Tieren handelte es sich um Abgabetiere, die den bisherigen Haltern "unangenehm" wurden, teilweise weil sie Dreck machten, weil sie zu laut waren, weil plötzlich kleine Kinder hinzukamen, weil sie aggressiv wurden und auch, weil sie plötzlich nicht mehr schön aussahen! Bei einigen Tieren jedoch siegte mein Herz über meinen Verstand und ich erwarb sie, um ihnen einen evtl. besseren Platz auf dieser Welt anbieten zu können. (siehe dazu auch "Lauras Geschichte" Aber vor ca. 1 Jahr befand ich mich zur falschen Zeit am falschen Ort ....
Da sich meine Interessen die letzten Jahre mehr auf Graupapageien und Amazonen verlagert hatten, war ich nun gezwungen, mich mehr über die Kakadus zu informieren, auch, weil "Dumbo" keine Zeit mehr zu verlieren hatte ... er hatte sich, nach meinem Empfinden, irgendwie aufgegeben, es fehlte ihm Lebenswille und -freude. Ich trat in Kontakt mit der Verfasser dieser Page, ich bat ihn, diese Seite auch für den deutschsprachigen Raum zugänglich zu machen, da seit einigen Jahren ein gewisser "Kakadu-Run" bei uns in Deutschland nicht abzustreiten ist. Er willigte sofort ein.

10. Hornbeam Aviary - Breeders Of The Beautiful Cockatoo!
Offers information on species descriptions and care, along with pictures, and handraised babies.
Jim and Katy McElroy returned to northern Ohio in the late 1970’s after having lived for several years in Perth, Western Australia. Soon after, to their delight, the pair of pet Greater Sulfur Crested cockatoos (C. galerita galerita) that they brought back with them produced youngsters . . . and Hornbeam Aviary was born. At Hornbeam Aviary, our goal has always been to produce a small number of healthy, well-socialized, parent-raised baby cockatoos from happy, unstressed parent birds. Instead of removing eggs for artificial incubation, we encourage our parent birds to feed and care for their chicks for four to six weeks or longer. Baby cockatoos raised in this manner are both wonderfully affectionate and refreshingly independent. They understand that they are birds, not people, and they grow up better able to cope with the complexities and puzzlements of living life as human companions. Our beautiful, healthy babies are raised in a large flight cage in our kitchen where they learn to interact with both their human caretakers and other baby cockatoos. They are permitted to wean at their own pace and only go to their new homes when we are certain they are ready. All of the baby cockatoos at Hornbeam Aviary come with lifetime technical support. Recently we have begun concentrating more on the less emotionally dependent cockatoo species such as Goffin’s, Bare Eyed, Citron Crested and Lesser Sulfur Crested because it is becoming apparent that Moluccans and Umbrellas often require more room, time, tolerance and commitment than even the most well-intentioned owners

Cockatoos live in Australia and some islands of the South Pacific. There are also a great number of Cockatoos in captivity in zoos and as pets. Cockatoos have very strong bills made of hardened keratin. Their bills are usually beige or black, depending on the species of cockatoo. They all have four-toed feet. Two toes point forward and two toes point backwards, this allows them to grasp things quite well.
Cockatoos have long life spans, from 30 to 50 years, and some have survived in captivity for 60 to 70 years. All cockatoos have a bald spot on their head, covered by a crest of feathers. They have a down powder beneath their feathers which provides them with insulation to keep them warm. The down also sheds a thick powder, which the birds use to waterproof and clean their outer feathers. Cockatoos are the only parrots to have powder down.
Cockatoos are very intelligent birds, and can be quite comical. Their life cycle is similar to that of humans. They go through infancy, childhood, adolescence, young adulthood, middle age, and old age. They can even be trained to talk, though their voice is much higher pitched than that of other parrots.
You may think that all cockatoos are white birds with yellow crests, but there are many species of cockatoo. There are even black cockatoos, but they are rare, and most of them live in wildlife parks and zoos.
