Bare-Eyed Cockatoo Species Profile
Traits:  Bare-eyed cockatoos are sociable, sweet and playful, but they can also be demanding and require plenty of interaction and cuddle time. They are smart and known for solving puzzles and other games. Bare-eyed cockatoos can be high-strung, but enjoy an active household. To keep these pet birds happy, they need at least one hour of playtime a day. They also need exercise with their owners and several more hours of supervised out of the cage time.

Behavior/Health Concerns:  Bare-eyed cockatoos are susceptible to psittacine beak and feather disease (PBFD), fatty liver disease, obesity and bumblefoot. Without enough mental and physical stimulation, bare-eyed cockatoos can resort to destructive behaviors. If not properly taken care of and given enough time with their human flock, they may become loud and frustrated, which can lead to biting, self mutilation or feather picking. Effectively socializing your bare-eyed cockatoo is essential to its good behavior. While these pet birds need attention and time with humans, they must also learn how to be independent and not become accustomed to an excessive amount of human attention. Bare-eyed cockatoos can become territorial once they have matured and are often destructive chewers. These pet birds are known to be dusty birds, which is a concern for those with allergies.
