Are all Umbrella Cockatoos Cuddly?

Postby Skye » Tue Mar 07, 2017 9:31 am

I am a new mother to an Umbrella Cockatoo. She is very cuddly and demanding of everyone's attention. Almost a lap bird!! She sets on mine and my husbands chest and loves to be petted!! We were wondering if this is typical for the species?

I'm not complaining, because I love her to death!! I enjoy such a cuddly bird. Thanks for the responses!! :cockatoo:

They are generally pretty cuddly and very needy. They are super sweet. Just make sure you only touch her on the head. You don't want any more hormones than necessary.
