Let me tell you about this wonderful sweet bird. Wow is she full of personality! She’s very quiet as far as Moluccan cockatoos go but can get very animated at times & act like she’s telling you a magnificent story! Her crest is a beautiful salmon color and her body is a pale pink with a slight yellow under her wings.
She doesn’t see well so slow steady movements are best not to frighten her. She has out-turned toes so she doesn’t perch well either. She prefers to be held close to your body as she feels unsteady when she’s held. Her cage has been redone to accommodate her mild handicaps.
She prefers to look out of a window & have a constant temp of 75-80. She doesn’t like to be covered & needs about 12 hrs. of sleep. She’d do best with 2 cages, a night time one in a quiet place & one with family during the day. She warms up slowly but she does warm up. She’d do best in a home without children as she was owned by a single older woman for all of her life and she doesn’t care for a lot of “bustle” & noise.
She would do best with someone who is very experienced with cockatoos and someone very patient. She’s been well loved and has never even attempted to bite anyone here. She’ll make the right person a wonderful life companion. She will probably live at least another 40+ years. Please keep this in mind when considering adoption.
