Hi I'm Charlie a Citron Crested Cockatoo about 12 years old. I'm very loud so you must be able to tolerate my noise, this is usually if you're home and not giving me your undivided attention as I am the most important species in the house.
I crave human attention although my sh mom says this has got much better since I have been in the bird room with my other feathered friends but I do still have my very loud moments and I ensure that everyone including all the neighbours are aware I'm here.
I don't mix with the other birds though I do keep myself to myself, its just nice to have them around although I'm also ok by myself.
If I get over exited and don't know how to channel my energy I can nip, it's not because I don't like you it's because I struggle with the emotion and that's the first thing that comes into my head. Having said that I do love my people and enjoy affection, I'm definitely not a nasty fid I'm just sometimes a little misunderstood. I think I need to understand boundaries, have a strict routine and not be over bonded that way I know my place and that makes me feel so much more content.
I do pluck, I think initially from stress but it's now become a habit. I'm not keen on been sprayed but I don't kick up a fuss.
I have a healthy diet of Tidymix, fresh veg Daily and fruit just twice a week as apparently I end up like a 2 year old human on blue Smarties.
As well as making a lot of noise I talk well and will pick up things pretty quickly, I even laugh with you when you're happy and cry with you when you're sad. As much as I have my issues my sh mom adores me and said I will only go to the very best home. My sh mom said with the right humans my issues can be controlled so she thinks someone with cockatoo experience would be very good for me.
If after reading all this you think we could be forever friends please contact re-homing and we could maybe discuss our future together yours lovingly Charlie too xx
