Jacob is a sweet and friendly Umbrella Cockatoo. He loves attention and will dance and sing with you or for you! He can also say his name in a variety of voices and loves music and playing with his wooden toys. He does not like men however and will bite them. Jacob is fully feathered and has a great appetite; he is being converted from a seed diet to a diet consisting of a variety of pellets, fresh fruits, veggies and nuts. Jacob has had surgery three times, and is a very special needs bird. He will not be adopted out to just anyone as a result. He does require daily cleaning of his cloaca due to the prolapsed surgeries he has undergone, which he tolerates fairly well. Jacob is a mild screamer and will need more work with that behavior. He will require an extremely experienced Cockatoo handler.
