Re: Soon to be cockatoo owner *hopefully*

Welcome to the forum!
Thank you for wanting to take in a bird who needs a home, there are far too many out there.
Have you ever been around a Too? I have a Greater Sulphur Crested who was rescued from a meth house, and after he detoxed he is a really good boy. However, he still has screaming fits in the middle of the night that shake the house. The screams can be nerve wracking. There are so many toos who need a home, and I applaud anyone who is thinking about taking one in. I would suggest spending some time with one beforehand, and talking to many people who have one.
As far as price, I don't know where you are located, but here in Alberta the rehomed toos go for between $500-$1200. Sadly, they are rehomed quite often.

In rescuing birds, I lost my mind but found my soul.
