Facts about Jacob

  • Breed: Cockatoo
  • Color: White
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
Hello! My name is Jacob. I am a very friendly and very sweet Umbrella Cockatoo. I LOVE attention and I will also sing and dance with you! I can say my name in a variety of voices and I love playing with all of my toys. I do not like men – I do prefer the ladies. As you can see though, I am gorgeous and I also have a really great appetite, I will eat anything you give me! I have had surgery three times to fix a prolapse, so I am special needs as it is possible I will prolapse again. I do have to have my cloaca cleaned each day, which I tolerate very well without much fuss. I just wanted you to know so you weren’t surprised when you met me. Because of these challenges, Florida Parrot Rescue says I can’t be adopted out to just anyone, that you need to be an experienced cockatoo handler and must know what is involved in caring properly (medically) for a bird of my species. I really hope that doesn’t put you off though – I think if you come and meet me that you will love me and want to make me part of your family. Please come soon! In the meantime, if you would like to send me a gift from my amazon wish list, you can see that list at: All gifts are VERY appreciated! Thank you!

About Florida Parrot Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Florida Parrot Rescue is dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of companion parrots. We strive to educate parrot owners on proper handling and care of parrots. Should someone be unable to keep their bird(s) for ANY reason, we want them to know there is a place to turn, and that they are not alone. It is our goal to provide a safe haven for birds that cannot stay with their owners or birds in need, and then to find those birds permanent forever homes with loving and responsible families.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our rescues are located in homes through out the state. We will work with the fosters and potential adopters to set up dates and times.
