Hello! I've recently adopted a Goffins named Kiwi from a local animalr rescuer. We know nothing about her age or what sort of life she lived before finding us. When we first met her she was in a room with 2 other 'toos and a macaw and was VERY nervous (we've learned she prefers being in a 1 bird house.) We could tell she was unique but figured we'd get to know her better in time. Boy were we wrong. "Feed your bird fresh fruits and veggies" she refuses to eat anything but grapes and will lick peaches but refuses to eat them. "Supply your cockatoo with toys to keep them busy" we spend hundreds of dollars to find she likes chewing on cardboard, shredding paper, and nothing else. "Cockatoos love cuddles, dont let them get too much attention" she refuses to step off her cage and when she does you can scratch her head if you can touch her at all. Every attempt we've made to train her to do ANYTHING has failed, she is not motivated by treats, and would much rather sit in her cage minding her own buisness or dancing to 70s hits. She seems to contradict everything we know. We love her to pieces regardless, but some answers wouldnt hurt. Has anyone seen anything like this?
