I had fallen in love with a Moluccan in a pet shop 2years previously, but a breeder talked me out of getting one. I ended up with my very best Umbrella Cockatoo, oey. Later, I just had to have my Moluccan, so I went back to Zoey's breeder and there was Daphne, sitting in a little basket, the prettiest baby I'd ever seen! She stole my heart the moment I saw her..

Hi! My name is Daphne

I am a Moluccan Cockatoo from Des Plaines, IL.

DaphneDoodle, or when she's naughty, Daphne Jane

16 years old   F

Moluccan Cockatoo

PIZZA!! Daphne is by no means a picky eater, but hands down, pizza is her favorite treat. She loves pomegranates, sugar snap peas, hot peppers, cauliflower--ju- st about any fresh food.

Daphne has a large hoop that hangs from the ceiling that she loves to twirl around on. She also loves to sit on top of a large ball that we have hanging near the ceiling.

She does not like to be told no to anything. She acts mortally wounded if you tell her no. She expresses this by grumbling with her crest at half-mast, working her way up to full-fledged yelling and foot-stomping.

My Mommy convinced my Daddy to build my sister Zoey and I a bird room to live in, so that we don't have to live in cages any more. We have lots of fun in there! It was especially fun chewing off all the rainforest pictures Mom had stenciled on the walls! I also love her because she spends alot of time and money on freh fruits and veggies for us.

She has 2 quirky verbalizations that I've never heard another cockatoo emit. One is "woo-wooo'' and the other is "do-do-do. do-do-do-do-do:- . The woo is when she's either swinging upside down and about to bite my behind as I'm cleaning the birdroom,or she also uses it when she is pretending to be afraid of something--say a green bean-- and she'll get all big and puffy and rock back and forth and say "woo--wooo". The "do do" is usually reserved for those times when we have ticked her off in some way (for instance, by telling her no!), and she scolds us..

To boldly chew where no bird has chewed before!!.

  Tweety needs your votes for her poem. Her foot had to be amputated Feb. 26th due to the main blood supply being cut in her leg. We had to separate her from her cage mate. I wanted to get her a big cage to move (fly around) in and after paying 258.00 for her leg to become amputated we could not afford to buy her the cage of her dreams. We notice that she flies a little to get around her cage and can defiantly use a bigger one. Thank you; please visit her web site at

Come visit me, Tweety, Frosty and Ringo.

  Don't you just love it when cockatoos stomp their feet? Mine does it in his water dish. He loves to wet the lovebirds. That's a cute photo, looks like they're holding feet.

  Hey Daphne
Hi Daphne, it's so funny that you said you'll hang over Zoey's head that we visited you and not her, but here a secret that I'll tell you we have the same thing we can hang over our sister Katara, lol. Thanks for visiting our page.

  Hi Daphne
Welcome to you my fellow Moluccan! I have a brother named Clyde that just visited you. You can check out my blog too! (can't be out-done by Clyde...a lowly Umbrella, you know!) My mom rescued me from an amusement park. I was scared at first but now I realize that I have it much better here in her flock. I must say that I've chewed my fair share of things in this house. Once I chewed off all the molding from this big beautiful window in the front of the house! I just couldn't resist all that nice wood! I can make some pretty good holes in walls too...but I have to be careful and do it when Mom's not looking! I also like to show off. I sing and dance and everybody laughs. Humans are such easy pushovers! Come visit me sometime! Birdie hugs, Buddy

Come visit me, Clyde, Tiki, Buddy, r.i.p. 8/20/08 & Bobbi.

  Hi Daphne
Welcome to you too. YOu are a good eater. My mommy always makes sure I get the good food first otherwise I ignore that and go only for the junk hahahahI I have a large hoop too from the ceiling! My mommy had a local welder make it for me! I love swinging on it. It's made of stainless steel. Cool motto .

I say" Splash splash wee " when I want to my mommy to give me a shower.
