Carmen was brought to us because she had so many health and behavior problems. We are trying to help her stop plucking and mutilating herself and have made some good progress.. Awards

Hi! My name is Carmen

I am a Cockatoo from Hot Springs, AR.


16 years old   F


Anything my husband is eating; nutraberries

On her cage door on on my husband's arm.

Me - she can't stand the sight of me since I had to give her some oral antibiotics!

She feeds me breakfast, even if she does make me take yukky medicine

Carmen loves to dance and she is finally learning to play with her toys instead of destroying her feathers..

never give up.

  Hello Carmen
I thought I would drop in to say I. I am glad you have parents that want to help you with all their heart. They are very special. I'm a cockatoo too an my mommy puts some stuff in my water that taste different. I sometime like to pick my feathers too. I think the stuff she uses is called Stress No More. Anyway I don't do much dancing but I sure know how to scream when my mommy leaves the room even when she says, she will be back. I like nuts but my mommy is careful not to give me a lot of them because my feathers act funny and then I pick them too. I love to shower though, I get to hang upside down in shower on my mommies arm. Boy, that's gotta hurt because I dig in to make sure I don't fall. Keep on making procress with those toy's because once to get to love them you will find they are lot's a fun. My favorite is when mommy makes lots a knots on the toys because I like to untie those knot. Hey, I can untie them faster then my mommy makes them. HEEEE, HEEEEE maybe I should be in the genius book of recorders. Ha HA. Here's a vote for you cutie

Come visit me, Sweetie Sadly Missed, past on Nov. 20th 2008 & Angel.

  I am glad to see you are doing well and have a loving family.

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.

  Stopp[ng By To Say Hello!
Hi Carmen;

You sure are lucky to have humans kind-hearted and experienced enough to adopt you. People like them are angels on earth. I (Zoey, a U2) am a feather destroyer as well. My Mom began giving me Himalayan Goji juice last fall, when I started moulting, and for the first time in 6 years, I let my primaries and my tail feathers grow in! Unfortunately, Mommy had some surgery, and Daddy didn't give me the Goji, and I chewed the feathers off again. Don't hate your Mom because she gives you yucky medicine..she gives it to you because she loves you! You're in a great place now, you beautiful 'too, so trust in your humans (I think these are ones you can trust, even if in the past you couldn't always trust who you were with.) and relax and have fun!! I bet you have some great toys to play with!
Catch you on the get-go
Peace and blessings, Zoey and Daphne

Come visit me, Zoey & Daphne.

  aww.. I remember my greenwing Buddy having to use a collar to stop his plucking.. he hated it! And pretty much destroyed it by the time we took it off! Looks like your feathers are doing really well, though!

Come visit me, Buddy, Cheyenne, Oliver, Oscar & India.
