Re: looking for a mulican cockatoo

The fertile egg thing is a scam. No reliable breeder will
sell an egg to someone, or anyone for that matter, because
the egg is our eventual baby. And frankly too much can go
wrong - even vibrations can cause issues making an egg fail
That and you would need a quality incubater - which will set
you back alot of $$$. You need to watch your humidity levels
to have a succesfull baby hatch, etc. To much at stake...
Second questions, the type of cockatoo you are looking for
are ones that need special owners. They can be VERY loud,
demanding, destructive and yes loveable, cute, cuddily....
A decent cage is going to cost around 600, the one I
recommend is about 1200-1400 - By the time you fit the bird,
toys, dishes, perches etc. you need about at least 2 times
as much cage as people plan.
Not to mention vet costs, food etc. I would just think about
what you want - you may very well find out you don't want a
large too but would be happier with a smaller parrot.
Please visit www.mytoos.com to listen to the noise level
they can/most likely will once they reach maturity. (I do
not agree with their idealogies are - but the noise level is
I love cockatoos, I do, they just need SPECIAL owners. I
think too many people think they can get a cute cuddily baby
and it will be what they dreamed of. Any parrot has a mind
of their own - and decide you are not what they dreamed of.
