Unfortunately, due to an injury, I am no longer able to take care of my fun-loving Goffin’s Cockatoo. She’s only 10 months old, full of energy, loves attention, and is a great bird for those with patients and plenty of structure in their schedule.
I work a regular work day (9-5), and she is fine with being in her cage during those times, as long as you take her out for at least 3 hours a day and change her toys out once or twice a week, so she doesn’t get bored.
Kiki has been talking for about a month now and she learns quickly! She can’t pronounce perfectly, but she says “Hi, Kiki!”, “I love you,” “Pretty bird,” and “Hello.” All I did was talk to her regularly and she started talking back! She is NOT a quiet bird, and you have to accept some screeching, especially in the morning (8 am) and evenings (6 PM).
She’s also extremely smart, and I’ve had to put some straps around her food doors, as she watches me and learns to open things. She would probably be great at solving puzzles and playing advanced games.
I’m looking for an experience bird lover who is looking for a young, trainable bird. She’s well behaved for a cockatoo, she just needs lots of love and a couple hours of exercise out of the cage each day.
I’m asking $1,000, but that comes with a $500 bird cage, toys, seed mix and air-tight storage container, cockatoo treats, plastic floor coverings, poop cleaner, spray bottle (she loves spray showers!), and assorted other birdie things. You won’t need to buy anything when for at least a couple weeks with everything I’m including.
If you think you can give Kiki a good home, I would love to talk to you to see if you would be a good fit for her! She definitely will make a happy and fun companion for years to come.
