|Rescue Me ID: 14-01-17-00091Goffins Cockatoo (female)|
** ADOPTION PENDING 2/10/14 ** Don't judge Betty by her feather plucking habits--she has had a rough past and we love her just the way she is! She needs to find a loving home who will do the same. Betty Boop, Goffin's Cockatoo: Once she comes out of her shell Betty has the typical goofy Goffin's personality. She is shy at first and is fearful of new things. Her new parront needs to be patient with her and not rush her into new situations. She needs a quiet home where she is the only Cockatoo. A home without young children is preferred. She came from a hoarding situation where supposedly she was forced into breeding (which didn't work well). Female owner preferred as she gets very 'excited' and hormonal around males. She does pluck from hormones and from stress. We believe she has the ability to grow the majority of her feathers back with the right Parront. We have seen it happen here, but she does not do well with our consistent intake and adopting out of parrots in our rescue. We are using the photo that represents Betty during her most awkward feather moments so you know what she may look like. It is possible this habit cannot be cured and it is important to accept her just the way she is, no matter what. Betty has been described as a 'little pin up girl'. Once she opens up to someone she has a goofy personality with a bit of 'pin up girl' attitude. She enjoys head scratches, but must not be pet anywhere besides her head/neck as she is a hormonal bird. When first approaching her as a new person it is best to talk softly and gain her trust--she has the tendency to be a nervous bird when new situations arise. When we come into the room, she greets us with a little squawk that sounds like 'hi'--her attempt to talk. :) Her favorite treat of all time is banana. She also likes our warmed homemade bird bread. Her main diet is Roudybush pellets. Her favorite toys are shreddable toys.

|PIease Read Before Adopting a Bird in Michigan|
Birds can make good pets in Michigan if they match your IifestyIe. Exotic tropical birds such as Parrots and Cockatiels, as well as Finches, Doves, Pigeons, and other varieties, are often kept in captivity as beautiful and interesting pets. Unfortunately, many owners may not know how to care for their birds properly, while others experience life changes that may leave their pets without a suitable home. Captive birds can suffer from nutritional deficiencies, psychological stress, and many other problems when they do not receive proper care. Many wild exotic birds are endangered as a result of the international pet trade. Non-profit bird sanctuaries provide homes for some birds for whom their owners can no longer provide care. However, many more of these birds need to be adopted by committed owners who have taken the time to thoroughly understand what it takes to care for the birds. A person who is ready for the responsibility of owning a bird should seriously consider adopting one rather than buying a new one.
