A pair of Toos is a winning hand

Well, my wife and I are going to go meet a pair of umbrella cockatoos tomorrow. We are very excited. We currently have a Mealy Amazon that gets along with other birds, but we will keep them safely separate for as long as it takes. Soooo excited.

Re: A pair of Toos is a winning hand

They are approximately 4 years old, and a bonded pair. They look to be very healthy, but we will find out tomorrow.

Re: A pair of Toos is a winning hand

Congratulations, they sound like a terrific couple! Always a good idea to quarantine new birds from your Mealy to prevent potential disease transfer. Parrots can be carriers even as they appear in perfect health. A generally accepted period is 30 days.

Anxious to hear how the homecoming goes!!

Re: A pair of Toos is a winning hand

Got them home and Boozie started getting excited. The dogs got excited. Then all hell broke loose. Boozie was absolutely drowned out by the cockatoos screaming. Locked the dogs away, put Boozie in her outside jungle gym and allowed the Toos to scream themselves out. Now everyone is calm. For now.

Re: A pair of Toos is a winning hand

Congrats on your new pair of umbrella cockatoos. May I suggest you invest in *quality* earplugs for the whole family? You'll be needing and using them often (I have a feeling) Hope you'll share some pics soon of the cockatoos, once they've settled in a bit.

Re: A pair of Toos is a winning hand

I'm with April here...lots of pictures when your new family members settle in.

I didn't notice,are they a bonded pair? Male/Female? Any names yet?

The only experience I had with a 'too was with Jonesy..a.k.a. The Cockatoo Man ( that's what he called himself) I called him a "little beady-eye'd monster"
He was a late 20-something goffin. He was a sweetheart at first,then turned postal..dr jeckyl mr hyde type of guy..gave me loveys one moment then drew blood the next. Then he thought SCREAMING from sun-up to long after bed time was a cool thing to do..oh, and did I mention his SWEARING at me?? "You're fn me! You're fn me!" But he usually only said that,when I was on the PHONE with someone lol.

However,when he was good...he was GOOD! mostly friendly with just about anyone. He loved attention and skritches..he and Amy became good pals,and he was very comical.

Unfortunately, for my sanity,and Amys ( Jonesy screamed so long and so hard,Amy would tell him SHUT UP!) I feared that Amy would pick up on his screaming, I had to re-home him.

He is now living with a family that owns the local Muki Mart around the corner. He adores their daughter ( she is the only one who handles him,mom and dad are nervous,don't want to get chomped on) He is bi-lingual now,speaks Pakistani,plays fetch with Dad,calls Mom "MeMe" ( Paki for Mom lol)
His name is now "BOB" lmao

Sorry I stole your thread! I hope all goes well..sounds like Boozie is excited about new future playmates!


Jim

Re: A pair of Toos is a winning hand

Looking forward to updates. Despite experience of any other parrot ownership, cockatoos are in a category all on their own.
