Baby Umbrella Cockatoo (Cacatua alba) Available! Umbrella Cockatoos have been made famous on Youtube for their hilarious behavior and attitude. Umbrellas are extremely charismatic and playful personalities. They can be great companions because of their loving personalities as well. Cockatoos can be extremely challenging as pets if not socialized and trained well. They can become loud and destructive without enough mental stimulation. Umbrellas tend to do well in homes with consistent schedules and constant interaction. Their large bodies require large cages. Ideally, the minimum cage size for this size bird is 40'x30'x75' with a 1'bar spacing. At Parrot Stars we focus on education, nutrition, and conservation. We work very hard to help educate our customers on parrot companionship. Prior to taking a bird home, we will provide information on proper housing, creating a safe environment, diet, behavior, hormones and much more. No question will go unanswered. Every hand fed baby is weaned on to a high variety diet. They are weaned onto fruits and veggies, a soak and sprout mix we make here in store, high variety seed that we also make here in store, and naturally colored pellet. If you have questions regarding this baby, or any others that we have available, please give us a call! Feel free to follow us on Facebook @parrotstars for more pictures, videos and information.

Rose breasted cockatoos! Affectionate and friendly, the Rose-Breasted Cockatoos have a reputation for being loving pets. They are sensitive birds, however, and require quite a bit of attention and interaction from their owners. Those interested in owning a Rose-Breasted Cockatoo should make sure that they have plenty of free time to spend with their new pet. Rose-Breasted Cockatoos are active birds and need plenty of exercise to maintain their physical health. Fresh fruit is a good source of nutrition for them as well.

We have Moluccan cockatoo available. Moluccan cockatoos are one of the largest white cockatoos. They average about 20 inches in length from the beak to the tip of the tail feathers. The Moluccan cockatoo is a rosy-pink color, with the depth of the pinkness varying per individual. Sweet and affectionate may be understatements when it comes to describing the Moluccan. It's a bird that loves to be loved and really wants nothing more than someone (bird or person) to be with at all times. Like most cockatoos, Moluccans are incredibly sensitive and can become neurotic and upset when they are neglected. East Stroudsburg PA 18301. We can ship Delta for $185 Weather Permitting & We can DNA for $40. Any questions please feel free to call me our phone number or email me at our email address.

Click on one of the following links for the type of Cockatoos you are looking for. If you don't see the Cockatoos for sale you are looking for, please list it under the birds wanted section.


Cockatoos are from Australia, Indonesian Islands and New guinea. They live in a diversity of geographic areas including woodlands, open forest and coastal plains. Through the years cockatoos have been faced with dangers from illegal pet trade and changing environment of their habitats. As a result they are listed as extinct species on CITES list. There has been more restrictions forced on commercial trade or importation/exportation on account of scientific research of these beautiful birds. Molecular evidences are substantial to prove cockatoos have their ancestors in New Zealand parrots of strigopoidea family. Popular ideas on how cockatoos got their name include from Indonesian word 'kakatuwah' meaning grip , Malaysian word cockatoo meaning pincher and so on.

The high intelligence of this bird along with their affectionate nature adds up to cockatoos high demand as a pet. Having a cockatoo is a long time commitment considering they could easily outlive their owners with a lifespan up to 70 years. Experts claim pet owners have to devote a couple of hours per day since these birds long for attention from their masters. However, each bird and situation is going to be different. Don't expect to get a cockatoo and leave it in a cage without daily interactions. Not fair to the bird and you will probably get a screamer to deal with who is bored. Lack of attention can result in boredom which can lean to feather plucking causing harm to themselves. Cockatoos are great imitators from surroundings though not many are good at mimicking humans. Most of the cockatoos can be tamed but only a few could be trained to talk. Being social animals they need their time out of cage to have their play hours just like a dog, cat or any common pet. Cockatoos comes in a variety of colors from white to yellow or pink. Some of these birds have different light colors on their crests. Cockatoos are attention seekers and that's one of the behavioral problems they exhibit. When the cockatoos are caged after their playtime they try to get attention by loud screaming. The trick is to ignore the screaming bird and attend when it gets quiet to make sure cockatoo doesn't make it a habit. Though the human nature is to race to make the loud bird quiet. Hard to do but ignore the yelling and treat the silence.

Cockatoos eat an omnivorous diet which includes seeds, flowers, insects and fruits. Black cockatoos feed more on fat than other breeds. Insects form a major part of diet in yellow tailed black cockatoos. Proteins could be offered through cheese, meat bones, canned dog food and hard boiled eggs. Fruit supplements can be added in diet including apples, oranges, carrots, peaches, bananas and many more but avocado being toxic to cockatoos should be avoided. Calcium particles could be sprinkled around the food at times. High lactose dairy food and meat can be added to their diet in small amounts. Excessive feeding of citrus fruits leads to Iron Overload disease in these birds. Water should be available for the bird throughout the day. Nutritional requirements are increased during breeding season and the diet must be adjusted accordingly. Other toxic foods include chocolates, dried beans and salty food.

Cages for cockatoos are tall and strongly wielded. The common idea with cockatoo caging is the larger the better. Cockatoos are great escape artists and if there are any escapes to be found, these birds will find it. Recommended size of 40 inches in width and 36 inches in depth suits most cockatoos. Caging should consider extra space for toys, perches and water. For social birds like cockatoos the cages needed to be kept at places where people visit more frequently. Make sure to not keep any sort of plastic in the cages which is hazardous when cockatoos chew on. It is recommended to change the toys frequently in cages. Cockatoos like to pry and they prefer novel toys every now and then. At times when human companion isn't available for play time, the birds enjoy listening to music and watching videos. Ladders and other sort of miniature play gyms makes good toys. Florescent toys look good on the eye but contains dye which is bad for the bird. Cockatoos are considered to be puppies of the bird pet world for their playfulness and inquisitive behavior.

Veterinary care is mandatory for cockatoos. Its essential to find a vet specializes in avian care. Dejected or tired look, irregular eating habits, runny dropping are indicators of a sick cockatoo. When these symptoms are noticed, cockatoos must be taken to a vet immediately. Common illness are caused by parasite mostly. Newly acquired birds need to be quarantined for some time before they adapt to the environment. Birds housed in larger groups are vulnerable to viruses and other infections. Be sure the bird doesn't bleed during clipping nails and feathers. Since cockatoos are powdery, bathing should be done once or twice a week. A spray bottle is used in most cases and at times cockatoos bathe themselves when provided with dish of water. People with allergies do not do well with cockatoos, cockatiels or greys.
