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.
