    Yes but they do tell you the risks of owning the birds.. and while
    seeing that site.. I dont understand how some can breed cockatoos
    or birds that are most abused and "past" home to home, abused
    abused, misunderstood musunderstood.... I mean.. those could be
    your chicks that you hand raise! Bringing up life when it'll just
    be abused.. more people dont know much about th eneeds for a
    cockatoo and buy one anyway and sever good yrs later their good
    times are up and the cockatoo has issues and they sell or give
    them away... just remmeber you are causing th eproblem by selling
    to people.. I'd only breed if I knew A LOT about the person wh is
    buyin gthe animal or teach the person about these big birds and
    inform them of the site mytoos.com and make them read and see
    EVERYTHIGN on that site before selling my bird to them... and its
    just EVIL to breed only to make money >:(
