Carnaby’s Black-Cockatoo For Sale
The Carnaby’s Black-Cockatoo is classified as Endangered. This may surprise some people, as the species occurs over quite a wide area of southwestern Western Australia, where they are often rather conspicuous, sometimes congregating into large flocks. They are even considered pests by some farmers when they descend onto crops of almonds and similar foods. However, their population has declined greatly in recent decades, due mostly to the loss and fragmentation of their preferred habitats, and they need the support of conservation programs to ensure their survival.

The History of the Cockatoo

There are over 20 species of cockatoos, each with their own behaviors and personalities, said Jody Rosengarten, a dog trainer, behavior therapist, and parrot enthusiast. Cockatoos are highly social and in the wild will forage in flocks as large as 100 birds.

What Do Cockatoos Eat?
According to Dr. Hess, cockatoos need a varied diet, including greens, vegetables, and fruits, with around two-thirds of a typical diet coming from nutritionally balanced, formulated pellets. An exclusive, seed-only diet is not recommended, she added, as the seed is deficient in nearly all vital nutrients.

Behavioral Issues in Cockatoos

Each cockatoo has its own personality, and while some can be affectionate, even “cuddle-able,” especially as babies, Rosengarten said, others can be very aggressive and prone to biting once they become sexually mature after about five to seven years of age
