    Raising a Flighted Umbrella Cockatoo

    Hi, my beloved cockatoo Lucifer passed recently after two surgeries, $16k in vet bills and an autopsy that showed a heart necropsy that could never have been fixed at all. My heart is shattered. I definitely plan to adopt again, but I’m worried I won’t be able to find another bird so perfect...

    Bile acid and beta globulins

    Good afternoon, I got a cockatoo umbrella female in October 2022 she is 1 year old. I decided to take the bird to an avian vet for an anual wellness exam to see why this bird is not waiting much during the day. And they did fecal. And blood test. Her fecal came back negative for parasite and...

    Hi All ! Wanting My Dream Bird, Umbrella Cockatoo. Is It Time For Me Yet ?

    Hi all, I am new to the forum, but have been a bird lover all my life. Since I was little, I ALWAYS wanted a cockatoo. After moving back into a family owned apartment building, I’ve been considering it more. There was a family with a special needs adult male that lived above me, and he’d...

    "We tell people she's just waiting to go home"

    My mom and I go into the pet store looking to pick up pellets for our boy Mike. I walk into the bird room and see a half plucked chicken (Umbrella Cockatoo) sitting on a perch looking regal and beautiful. I go over to say hi to the other two Cockatoos in the room, since my family and I have been...

    First Umbrella Cockatoo

    So today I got an Umbrella Cockatoo, (unsure of dna sex, I think it’s male,) and the bird is absolutely the sweetest when it’s in the cage, and when it’s out and on me. If it’s on the floor completely different ball game. But my biggest issue is that, if I leave the room, he screams, I turned...

    Seeking to adopt/rescue.

    We drove from Maryland down to Hickory NC for the bird show with no luck in finding a Pionus or Too. Anyone looking for a forever home for either? Preferably Bare eye or Umbrella and or Maximilian or Bronze wing. We currently have an African Grey I rescued in 1996 she is now 25yo.

    How long can a Large 'Too be left alone per day?

    I've been researching cockatoos on and off for almost two years now, trying not to just be one of those people who think "They're so cute! I want one!" and just buy the bird on the spot and having it be unhappy and eventually being re-homed. I have a full time job (40-45 hours a week) and a...

    U2 'whine'...what does it mean?

    I'm curious if anybody can give me any insight? There are these two U2s at the rescue I go to... I don't work directly with them, but I do hang out with them on breaks. They don't like people in their aviary ... Mated pair that are very territorial... but will gladly chill on the side of the...
