Information On Cockatoo Care

This site is dedicated to providing you the most accurate Cockatoo Information available.  I've taken the most popular types of Cockatoos and written specific articles to help coach you on what it takes to care for that species of Cockatoo, so you don't end up with a Cockatoo who's behavior is unmanageable and out of control.

You should also tell you that if you're seriously considering a Cockatoo because you think Cockatoos are a sweet loving breed of parrot... you're only HALF right.  Most Cockatoos will naturally be extremely sweet and loving for the first 5 years of their lives.  But after that most turn into VERY problematic birds.

The Cockatoo is extremely prone to become a feather plucker, and mutilator, excessive screaming and sporadic biter.  Making Cockatoos the hands down, worst, and most difficult parrot to own.  In my opinion only 5% of the population is even capable of raising a cockatoo correctly, and it would be wise to NEVER purchase one, no matter how cute they look in the pet store, or how smooth the salesperson is who's selling you one.

But all is not doom and gloom, and Cockatoos can be raised to be amazing pets.  But it takes knowing what you're doing, being willing to get the help from experts and the willingness to get your hands on the right information to help you care for your cockatoo.  Which is why I highly recommend reading through our archive of articles on different techniques, tips and information on how to care for your cockatoo.
