Re: Please help umbrella cockatoo 'issues'

thank you everyone for your advice I haven't been able to reply due to my emails and logging in issues but now I'm sorted,araura has somewhat calmed down she lets me handfeed her and she doesn't just drop it anymore, she came with a large dog cage not big enough though so that is left in the room although she prefers to sleep on my conures cage player and. I have noticed she grinds her beak every so often usually whilst I'm reading and it's time for bed and she only hisses when something (usually my conure) spooks her

Re: Please help umbrella cockatoo 'issues'

Let us know how she transitions to a cage! You may have to "bribe" her initially and reward good behavior both in and out of the cage.

Re: Please help umbrella cockatoo 'issues'

S glad to hear she has a temporary setup to keep her contained when not supervised. I'm sure she'll adapt to a cage and can still be out whenever you're home to supervise until she has been trained and can be trusted

P.S. I wouldn't let her interact with your conure. The size difference is just too dangerous. One bite from a U2, even a playful or warning one, could kill your conure.

also the conure never interacts with her when the conure is out I let him play down stairs with his stand whilst I observe the Cockatoo as it's a very trustworthy bird haha he sits with me eating my tea whilst typing this
