Yes, who knows what type of cockatoo I'll be getting. They're all so beautiful and
great birds. But one of them is th perfect one for me, just got to find it, or have it
find me :) I agree the older the better. I wont be getting an infant. I rather have a
cockatoo that knows its a brid yet loves me still. Like a bird bird-raised and 3yrs+.
And I wont be buying from a breeder, thats causing more to the problem, but will be
getting a rescued bird instead. Thank you so much for your time, and you may not have
noticed but have encouraged me to do still my reserach, relook things over and make
sure I in for this(I believe I am)
