Palm Cockatoo

A cockatoo is a parrot that is any of the 21 species belonging to the bird family Cacatuidae, the only family in the superfamily Cacatuoidea. Along with the Psittacoidea (true parrots) and the Strigopoidea (large New Zealand parrots), they make up the order Psittaciformes (parrots). The family has a mainly Australasian distribution, ranging from the Philippines and the eastern Indonesian islands of Wallacea to New Guinea, the Solomon Islands and Australia.

Judging the pair I own, the description is correct but they do not adapt well to strangers. My pair bonds well with my family but not during mating and brooding period, they want their privacy and tend to look after their young much longer. My pair sometimes still feed their 9 month old chick occasionally. On the chewing part, they do enjoy itu with soft material like young shoots, twigs, sugar cane etc.

Thanks mag.. :) They are really a good parents.. It is difficult to breed them (thats what other breeders told me)
What do u feed ur pair? Is it the same like any other cockatoos? For a black palm what kind of basic feed they love most?

Thanks mag for the info.. I think the soft tube is the best for the food.. Im not owning any palm but just admires their beauty and will apply for the permit in the future.. I did saw several of them in PENANG BIRD PARK and they are really beautiful.. Now just admires only.. :mrgreen: :)
