    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-
