beakertrout: Today Beaker had his appointment with the groomer/breeder. I almost walked out of there with the cutest, sweetheart cockatoo. The groomer was really trying to "set the hook". She offered a free cage and no tax. Dec 2, 2019 14:01:22 GMT -7

beakertrout: I did my homework. If I was still "retired" I would consider one. At the moment I cannot dedicate the amount of time I think one would require. There are a lot of cockatoo warning sites out there. Dec 4, 2019 8:57:47 GMT -7

chris: I just posted in my Boarding thread about Ruby duplicating a Cockatoo screeching sound once. I don't know if this is typical of them but wow, the sound wasn't pleasant. Ruby is loud but generally her noises are not 'fingernail on the chalkboard' material! Dec 5, 2019 6:55:15 GMT -7

beakertrout: I am sure I have mentioned the cockatoo across the street from me. I have heard the owner yelling at it to "SHUT UP", like that is gonna work! The screaming can carry for over 1/4 of a mile......... Dec 7, 2019 9:58:39 GMT -7

Haz: That is how a member of our parrot club met her neighbours. They came over to see who was being murdered. It was her cockatoo screaming. Dec 7, 2019 13:51:38 GMT -7
