Meet Coho

Coho is a 14 year old, gorgeous male Moluccan cockatoo looking for a person who can devote time and has previous experience with bird behavior. Coho loves to destroy his toys and boxes, take showers, he is also an excellent fruit and vegetable eater. At the beginning of every day he will greet you with a “good morning” and desire head scratches. Due to previous circumstances, Coho is not skilled at stepping up, and behavior-wise he can be unpredictable, but with proper training this can be improved. He says “I love you”, “what are you doing”, and “pretty bird”, and he also enjoys barking with his foster's dogs and laughing. His favorite treats are almonds but he also loves grapes. Coho is looking for home where he can be provided with lots of love, toys, and patience.

Male cockatoos are generally boisterous, loud, high energy, and unpredictable. They need homes committed to understanding behavior (flock behavior, positive reinforcement, never try to snuggle, the ability to keep them BUSY, etc)?

Cockatoos usually do best in a home with other birds (cockatoos preferably), so they don’t depend completely on people, and become dysfunctionally attached to you. This is what leads to some problems (screaming, latching on and biting hard, etc).

So, if you are obsessed with positive reinforcement training, enrichment, are high energy, want more than one bird, and are up for a challenge - male cockatoos are for you!
