Hi, I have a friend who is having surgery and I’m watching her 25 year old umbrella cockatoo. She brought him to my house and he was pretty freaked out for about 5 days. He’s finally starting to settle in. I may have him for the next 3 months as my friend is having a very serious operation. My question is, his toe nails seem way too long, to the point that sometimes he catches them on the cage. I took the best picture I could, I didn’t want to freak him out. His owner told me that he hasn’t been out of his cage for a very long time. I guess his cage at home is quite large. The one she brought me to use is too small, so I’ve been opening up his cage door and letting him exercise his wings and be on top of the cage. I’ve read as much as I could about cockatoos, but have a lot to learn. So far my husband and I are really enjoying his antics and dancing capabilities. After he goes back home, we quite seriously will probably buy our own parrot.
