My story

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.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

All of our animals have an individualized fee associated with their adoption which is based upon the vet fees incurred. Please contact us for an adoption application. There will then be a phone interview, home inspection, and then you will visit with the birds to help determine which bird is appropriate for your home.
