Thomas: Sheeba wants whatever it is we are eating, as long as it has butter, grease, sugar, maple syrup, etc. She likes fish, chicken, tomales, enchiladas, but it has to have butter or some flavoring. Jun 12, 2020 18:06:02 GMT -7

beakertrout: Beaker decided he was going to yell at me for something to eat. I told him to knock it off, he got everything he is gonna get. He went back on his roost and made noises. Jun 14, 2020 18:31:43 GMT -7

Jane: So raucous. Maybe to Cockatoo's ears it is music. I suppose it encourages the parents to get some food for it quickly just to shut it up! Jun 17, 2020 2:01:44 GMT -7

Haz: That’s how a woman from our parrot club met her neighbours. They came to see who was being murdered. It was her cockatoo. Jun 17, 2020 13:17:56 GMT -7

chris: We had to board Ruby a few years ago and there was a Cockatoo in the same room. When she came home she was screeching horrible sounds. Took about a month of ignoring this before she stopped. Jun 18, 2020 9:19:40 GMT -7

beakertrout: Beaker pushed it to the limit today. His yelling for no reason got him a manicure. He sure is quiet now. Jun 26, 2020 10:33:01 GMT -7

beakertrout: To clarify, he was overdue for a manicure (SHARPE!) and I was dreading having to do it myself. That is why I take him in. His yelling gave me motivation not to wait for his next appointment. My son held him while I filed on his claws. Jun 26, 2020 12:08:45 GMT -7

Haz: Chy just quietly swears at me when we Dremel her nails. She made up her own curse. She says poo on you and clenches her foot to make it hard to get at her claws. Jun 27, 2020 13:24:31 GMT -7

beakertrout: They have there snits! At least Beaker didn't go native and start biting. My son had a finger in his mouth during the filing and he said Beaker was biting harder, but no big deal. Jun 27, 2020 16:28:20 GMT -7 *
