Bare-eyed cockatoos are known for their sweet and affectionate nature, making them delightful pets. These playful and energetic birds thrive in environments that provide plenty of love and attention. A key aspect of caring for these cockatoos involves providing a spacious cage filled with toys, perches, and engaging activities. While they may be smaller in size compared to other cockatoo species, their personalities are anything but small.
Indigenous to Australia and Southern New Guinea, bare-eyed cockatoos are often overlooked as pets due to their unique appearance. However, they possess a remarkable sense of humor and exhibit a level of independence that sets them apart from other cockatoos.
To ensure optimal accommodation for these birds, it is recommended to provide them with large cages that allow them to fly and stretch their wings. As they are adept chewers, it is crucial to secure the cage with locks or escape-proof latches. Furthermore, their nesting boxes should feature twin entry gates to prevent any obstruction from the male bird.
In terms of temperament, bare-eyed cockatoos make excellent pets due to their quick learning abilities and enthusiasm for performing tricks. However, it is important to note that neglecting their need for attention can lead to aggression and destructive behaviors, such as biting, self-mutilation, and feather picking. Additionally, they may exhibit territorial behavior and tend to be a bit noisy after reaching maturity.
When it comes to their diet, it is advisable to maintain a controlled feeding regimen to prevent obesity. Their meals should consist of a variety of fresh fruits, vegetables, sprouts, and seeds.
Proper care for bare-eyed cockatoos also involves regular bathing to keep their skin and plumage healthy. After bathing, it is recommended to dry them in a warm room or under the sun. Trimming only the primary wings will allow the birds to fly and glide comfortably without any hindrance.
