We adopted Peaches 5 hrs ago. He’d suffered trauma watching his prior “parent” shoot himself in the head. Peaches suffered from abreactions to sounds of gunshots and sirens. He came along so well. A lot of love, hugs, good food, and socializing - he loves car rides and scratches/petting at the pet store.

Peaches love nuts, but he’s very lazy about cracking them. People food is his favorite: pasta, chicken, salmon, carrots, corn, peas, broccoli, mashed potatoes, red meat (especially the fat)... He does enjoy a vanilla ice cream cone a couple of times during the summer.

Peaches loves to be hugged and scratched under his wings. He’s very good about having his talons clipped. He’s fully flighted, though he chooses not to fly an whole lot.

My doctor at the University of Pennsylvania discovered I have severe asthma and I have to rehome Peaches. The dustiness causes me to be very ill. I love Peaches. We have 4 parrots and he’s the one I adore, without question. He must go to an experienced large parrot owner who understands this breed. Oh, you have to trick him otni showering. He’s great once that nice warm water hits him.

Be aware that a Moluccan Cockatoo has a bite of 800 psi and is known as a “jetliner bird” because their screams are about 10 decibels below a Jet. They tend to scream 2 to 3 times a day. They are wild birds and are just doing what they’d do in the wall. Peaches’ scream duration can be reduced when I speak quietly and calmly to use his “inside voice.”

Peaches will come with the following:


Cage (large)




Boxes (he loves to play with large boxes-put together with one side open. Peekaboo is a game he often enjoys)

The price is for Peaches. The rest is being given to help you. So, no price reduction. If there’s something you don’t want, just let me know.

Price - $1,000.00 + Shipping/Handling
