Re: Rescued Cockatoo

"Good to know lol because from what I have found, she is an old lady. lol"

Oi! There's nothin' 'LOL' about bein' an old lady! I'm one, so I should know!

Here are some tips for free:

praise her often and lavishly
tell her how young she looks
sing to her soothingly
bring her lovely treats on a silver platter
give her a LOT of money
decorate her cage in her favourite colour
make goo-goo eyes at her all the time, *especially* when people are watching

All this should set you up for a great relationship with your lady of a certain age.

Oh. One last thing. DO NOT argue with her for she is always (repeat: ALWAYS) right!

🤣🤣🤣

This is hilarious. We don't tend to argue a lot. I have noticed since I took her junk food away, she yells at me a lot. Other than that, if I walk in the door, after being gone for any amount of time, I always get an I love you from her. She definitely is the center of attention. she runs the house and the other pets, kids, and my husband know it. I don't think I've ever found an instance where she was wrong. 🤗

Re: Rescued Cockatoo

So, I took y'all advice. I put her pellets, some greens, an egg, and the egg shell and put it in the blender. Then, mixed it with the rice and made different shaped rice cakes. We will see what she thinks. If I can get her to eat them, I will start making them with only pellets.

Re: Rescued Cockatoo

Ok, so here is how it went.

I walked into the living room and sat down in the floor beside her cage. I starting saying, "Mmmm, this is good," and acting like I was eating it. She looks at me through the box lol like, "Hey momma, whatcha got?" I moved up to the couch beside her, and was still acting like I was eating it. She got on her perch beside her food bowl, and I sat it down. And guess what....SHE ATE IT. Not like one or two bites, but ALL of it!!! I could have cried!!

I am getting ready to set her cage up a little better, but I had to share that with you all. Thank you SOOOOOO much for the advice!

Re: Rescued Cockatoo

Yippie!!!!! Whoo hoo! Love the picture storyline too! Her face peeking out from the box, all the way to her face buried in all that healthy yummy food!!! Great job!

One point if note, rice grows stuff in the fridge quickly, that can make birds sick. So use fresh each time or freeze the left overs.

Re: Rescued Cockatoo

Thank you, she's the best. I'm going to make fresh rice, every time. But I'm going to refrigerate the mix that I used.

I had to do the same with my male U2 Cooper and reason why I know rice works wonders. Cockatoos love rice more then anything, they also like pasta as well as oatmeal. Rice is food that a cockatoo can't refuse. Plus if you sit by them and take a bite they be more willing to try it as they consider you a flock member and if they see you eating it, it reassures them that it is good to eat. Plus brown or white (without salt added) is beneficial to them.
