Winston is a 7 year old male, sulphur crested cockatoo. He’s very sweet and mostly quiet, except he doesn’t like being left alone and will shout for roughly 15 minutes after you leave the room.
Cockatoos are very sociable birds so it would be ideal for Winston to have a friend parrot of a similar size. At present we are unsure of whether Winston is okay with being out and about with other birds, but he calmly watches them on TV and chats to them.
We would recommend that if he was to live with another parrot that they should be in separate cages and let out one at a time, under supervision, to see how they get along.
Winston needs an owner that has experience with cockatoos, as they are quite destructive and can get over excited very easily.
We would recommend that Winston should go to a home without young children as he has bitten quite hard out of frustration. He needs a calm home or owners that will understand the need to behave calmly around him.
Winston is missing some toes so his potential new owner would need a chat with our Vet before rehoming.
