Javid, you need to start going to other members with cockatoos websites.
You can start with mine at http://www.parrotfantasy.com
if you want. It's still under construction, but there are the stories and the pictures of our guys there.
If you think you can keep a cockatoo happy with anything less than 3 hours of attention a day, you are seriously deluded.
Jeneanne(I hoped I spelt that right) Harvey has an Umbrella, and he needs 5 HOURS with them a day.
<close enough on spelling <G> And Javid, PLEASE read Luna's story under the Other Bird Behaviour section. I KNOW birds. I KNEW what I was doing, as far as bonding with a bird. I weaned my Greater, and he STILL chose to exhibit phobic behaviour and to completely abandon me, and I'm a settled adult who has had birds for 20-some years! The ONLY way my husband and I have time for our birds and animals is to work opposite shifts. That means we get to spend Sundays together, and one of each 3 Saturdays, and we see each other for 45 minutes a day weekdays. But we do it. Why? Because we have made a commitment to our birds. We made this decision as adults, knowing that we had a settled lifestyle. And it's still difficult.
I understand how difficult it is to hear "you're too young" or "your life isn't settled enough for a cockatoo". My best friend has bred and raised toos for years, and for 15 years she wouldn't let me have a baby, and told me that if I got one from anyone else she'd NEVER speak to me again, because my life wasn't settled enough for a too. I hated it. And I was in my 30's, I had a daughter, I had a good life, a house, a steady job making good money...but you know what? She was right. I got "permission" from her to get a Too only after my daughter moved out, I divorced my husband, had met my (now)husband and had changed my lifestyle from very active to very homebody. I do EVERYTHING I do with a bird on my hand or on a stand next to me, from taking a bath to eating dinner. My birds go to the coffeehouse with me when I go out in the evenings. They go camping with me. In the summer they go out to eat at outdoor cafes with me. They go to music festivals with me. THIS is what you have to be able to commit to. My birds have a trust fund, as they'll outlive me. I've spent years making sure that the three trustees of their fund are known to my birds, know how to take care of them, WANT them, etc. One of my trustees is 10 years old. The others are my best friend and my 22 year old daughter. The 10 year old is on there because she's the most gifted person I've ever met with animals, (she pets baby wild deer in her back property, has a screech owl that'll come out of the trees and land on her shoulder, she has a gift!) but the trust fund states that she can't have any of my birds unless she meets certain criteria (among them, has graduated from University and owns her own home) even though she's one of the people I've chosen.
Believe me, people aren't trying to be mean here. They're trying to help.
