Eric's Info...

Eric's Story...
Eric is a 37 year old male Lessor Sulfur Crested Cockatoo, who does not have a band. Not a lot is known about his past. As with cockatoos he can have a loud yell at times, but he also has some issues with screaming very loud for long periods of time. He would not be a good companion for someone living in an apartment or duplex setting. He does have some fear of children. He doesn't mind small dogs or other birds. He dances, sings 'Ba ba bar ann', moos like a cow, whinnies like a horse, clucks like a chicken, he says his name, hello, bye, and several other things. He is a good eater but very wasteful (only put about 1/4 cup food at a time in his dish, he will pick it up with his foot and throw it), he is currently eating Higgin's Sunburst Parrot, mixed with Higgin's Natural Avian Pellets. He loves grapes, apples, carrots (cooked and raw), frozen mixed vegetables, thawed, rice, sweet potatoes and fresh cranberries. He is a shredder, chewer, so toys with wood and paper are ideal! Eric is a plucker and has chewed off his wing feathers. He loves a warm shower followed by being wrapped in a soft blanket and then being blow dried. He loves to snuggle and preen your hair. He does not like to be left alone, he will scream if he sees you leave the room he is in.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Eric, a Plymouth Cockatoo was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Cockatoo for sale in Plymouth, or seeking a Cockatoo from a breeder in Plymouth.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Plymouth already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Plymouth breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Cockatoo breeders who help with Cockatoo rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Plymouth paves the way for another one to be saved.
