Yes Dan, baby Cockatoos are sweet, cuddly and fun, but, they do
grow up and that is when the problems start. U2's and M2's are
among the worst, especially the males, when they hit sexual
maturity. They CAN become terrible screamers, biters, pluckers
and mutilators. Therefore, regardless of your obvious personal
opinion of Kj, or anyone else offering advice, telling a person
that they should research in depth before bringing home a bird
that will most likely be dumped by that very person at some
point, is NOT bad advice. Telling someone to jump blindly into a
bird that can be loud, obnoxious, destructive and quite frankly,
dangerous, IS bad advice. Rescue birds are NOT for everyone, but
neither are Cockatoos. To the original poster, The advice given
to you is the best you could have gotten, "do a lot of research
on the species", before you make a decision that you may regret
later on. -Alison-
