BLAZER

Goffin Cockatoo

Stock Photo

Species:  Tribella Cockatoo

Name:  Twinkie

Age/Sex: 3 year old Male

Vet:  March 26, 2018

Plucking:  Just starting to break/pluck feathers

Tame: Yes

Diet: Breakfast fruit:  banana, apples, canned pineapple, loves grapes & cantelope.  Dinner:  Pasta, mixed frozen veggies, pasta, potato, cucumber, red pepper.  Left in cage:  Zupreem fruit pellets.  Limit in cage:  2 walnuts for foraging, pinch of sunflower seeds. He likes a couple of mango yogurt treats and matza.  He loves to eat pasta and pancakes with humans.

Behavior:  Has began to bite wife, husband and younger daughter.  Okay with teenage daughter.  He does well with other people.

Talk:  About ten words

Reason for Re-homing: We thought we were experienced bird people as we also have a rescued macaw and conure and 17 chickens.  A cockatoo needs more expertise.  We want nothing but the best for him as he deserves it.  We had him at a young age where we hand-fed formula and really bonded with him.  He started to get aggressive with wife and then slowly with husband and one daughter.  This causes him to be locked up until teenager gets home from school at 1:30 p.m.

Notes:  It's not fair for him to be locked up while the others are out.  We want nothing but the best for him.  We want him to go to a household that has at least one cockatoo and experienced.  We don't want him going to a house with more than five birds because we want him to get the attention he so deserves.
