Oz (Umbrella Cockatoo) - 5270912

Name: Oz

Species: Umbrella Cockatoo

Reference No: 5270912

Summary: Hello! I'm Oz, a lovely friendly, cuddly 24 year-old umbrella cockatoo.

Okay, I should tell you right off that I can be a noisy fellow. I love attention so much, I scream if you ignore me. If you know cockatoos, you'll know that this is pretty common behaviour with us. I also talk all the time and will always greet you. In my ideal world, I'd love to spend all my waking hours out of my cage with you. I'm happy to sit on your shoulder, help you with the chores, keep you company all day long. You will never be lonely with me! I will sit with you and cuddle you and turn you white with dust like me. We can be a pair of cockatoos together! I like to exercise my beak by demolishing my toys, so please don’t buy me expensive ones. A good supply of safe wood and cardboard would be a good idea to keep my beak occupied. My safehouse mum doesn’t know if I can fly as I don’t bother. I prefer to walk everywhere. One day I might just surprise everyone and take to the wing. My life has been a bit tumultuous recently as I've been moved from a few different homes, but no matter where I go, I bring my cuddles. No breaking in period--I will give you cuddles from day one! If you have to work part time I could tolerate a few hours alone, but really this isn't ideal for me as I love to be around people so much. I'm good with men and women and children, so long as they all know how to tickle me! Cats and dogs are fine too. I love human food and, if you can make it healthy, I will happily test out your cooking skills! I get on with other birds and will talk to them but I have not been "let loose" at the same time as them yet. I live in Wiltshire and cannot wait to rate your cuddling skills. Don't worry if they're not up to scratch, I can teach you! I come with my cage, but it isn't the most secure, so once I have settled, I will need a new one so I can reliably be put to bed. I'm such a loving boy, but as I said above, I am very noisy and need lots of attention. I've had several homes, so please, please, only apply for me if you understand the needs of a cockatoo and think you can give me a true forever home.

Comes with cage? Yes

Location: Wiltshire

Note: This bird is in the latter stages of the rehoming process and a potential forever home may have been found. Please do not apply for this bird unless the red writing is removed. Thank you.
