Facts about Sweet Thing

  • Breed: Cockatoo
  • Color: White
  • Age: Unknown
  • Sex: Male
I am a wild caught Umbrella Cockatoo of unknown age. I am very skeptical- wary of strangers. I do bite and according to my previous owner it is very unpredictable. I can however be very sweet and loving.
So far- since coming to the Haven I was very stand-offish for a long time. I am just now getting up the nerve to come to the front of the cage and stay there if/when someone comes into the room. Today my caretaker was able to pet my head for the first time... it felt wonderful. She was excited that I actually let her. I have lived in "side by side" cages with a female Mollucan Cockatoo for several years. Through the cage bars his previous owner says he was very docile with her (Pumpkin) however there is fear he might be too aggressive. I have bred with another bird and raised ofspring in years past but not recently.

My adoption fee is 500.00
