Facts about Mickey

  • Breed: Cockatoo
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Unknown
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 5904207
Hi, I'm Mickey! I'm a male Umbrella cockatoo. I choose the people I like carefully, but if you're one of those people, I'll be your best friend. I do require someone with cockatoo experience who can read my body language. I don't like when people wear baseball hats. Baseball hats scare me. Please keep this in mind if you come to visit me. Unlike a lot of the other cockatoos here, I don't like almonds. I do, however, LOVE walnuts and will happily devour one if given the chance. I'm not a quiet bird and I'm not shy about demanding attention from those people I love.
