It is possible but of course not guaranteed. My Goffins have no problems with my TAG or Ekkie. Of course it is a two-way street and also dependent on your severe.

I hope you are able to help the Goffin! They are such sweet and lovable little toos.

Re: Owning a cockatoo

I have to agree with the being able to entertain itself. I think for a bird to stay mentally stable and not freak out when life happens for its human, its a great thing for them. All my birds are okay if I have to step out for any amount of time. I also have a new Alexandrine that I adopted from a family. He was plucking and was very nervous. They gave him tons of attention and then got busy later in life. Most of his feathers have grown now and he's able to spend time alone without freaking out.

Re: Owning a cockatoo

Not sure when they start eating, but have you never done this before? It concerns me that you don't know, although I am glad you want to know. How did you acquire a bird like this without already possessing that information?
Not trying to be rude, but an adult cockatoo is difficult enough, let alone a weaning baby...

Re: Owning a cockatoo

Hi Everyone,

I just wanted to update everyone. We named him Jell-O or Jello. He is doing really well and seems to really love all of us, but of course I feel the extra goes to me. He is such a great pet and we've gotten over the fear of getting a bite. I haven't received any hard bites like the first 2 days, which is when I asked the first question. He seems to trust me and I trust him. That's not to say that he wouldn't bite if he wanted to get his way, but I just feel we are reading each other just fine and enjoy each others company. He started saying wings, which is something my other cockatoo says while also lifting her wings. I thought that was pretty amazing and goes to show how smart he is, because we've only had him 3 weeks. My Son also heard him say Hi, Jello. He is super cute, super smart and an awesome bird.
