post cockatoo pics and talk about cockatoos! I love these creatures. All cockatoos allowed but major mitchell's cockatoos are my favourite :)
and hybrid cockatoos aren't allowed because that's unethical.


I don’t know anything about them, but these pictures are cute!

would love to buy a cockatiel/parrot but mantaining them seems cumbersome

cockatiels aren't quite as bad as cockatoos and other large parrots. You could consider finches since they don't require physical attention quite as much. All pet birds require a lot of attention either way and its also pretty expensive, since you should have multiple birds. Finches especially require socialisation with other birds, though I don't think its ethical to keep any social bird species alone. (andits not ethical to keep any solitary birds in the first place.) It'll be better to find a pair that gets along in the first place because introducing new birds can be a bit difficult though not impossible. You'll also need a large enclosure and need to spend a lot of money on toys to rotate them at least weekly as birds can and will become bored. It can even lead to depression and self destructive behaviour.

that's pretty amazing I didn't know birds were so social/playful

they are nearly as intelligent and social as humans. some birds are even possibly capable of language. not in the form of having words for danger, food, mating, etc, but as innate ability for grammatical structures, concepts like nouns, adjectives and verbs. All animal language research is at risk of being heavily interpreted, but I think we might actually be close to coming to a conclusion of language not being uniquely human. In any case birds are also demonstratably self aware and understand abstract concepts like death and its permanence.


oh and another thing birds understand that even young humans don't necessarily is object permanence.


Are they like parrots?
