Yes Dan, many smaller birds also become that way, but a small bird
isn't going to remove body parts when they bite you, or deafen you
with their extremely loud screaming. And lets keep in mind that the
original poster was asking specifially about Cockatoos, NOT smaller
birds, and that is why my answer was specific to that species and
not the long list of others who are infamous for developing nasty
and undesirable behaviors when sexually mature. Anyone who is
wanting to aquire ANY animal, should do research first to determine
if that particular animal is the right choice for them and their
specific lifestyle and living situation.
As far as 'rescues' go, yes, those of them that are nothing more
than liars, hoarders, breeders and brokers, far outnumber the few
legitimate ones that exist, but a few good ones DO exist and should
not be ruled out as a posibility for someone who can handle someone
elses rejected bird, complete with all their faults. A little
research will certainly help one to quickly eliminate the false
rescues and narrow it down to the good ones. -Alison-
