Max was a rescue. He was surrendered to a loacl Petco (i know people are so against these stores, but they saved my birds life) as a baby with crop burn and yeast infection and just in bad shape. I fell in love with him there and when he was better, they adopted him out to me.. Awards

Hi! My name is Max

I am a Cockatoo from Zionsville, IN.


11 years old   M


these weird cheese puff looking treats mom buys at Petco

anywhere but his cage, mostly with mommy

max is afraid of most sticks or anything long and skinny. He also cannot stand to have his water clear...the minute it's new, he dunks pellets.

She plays and wrestles with me and we scream at eachother each morning. She loves me and my sister Izzy very much.

max likes to chase his feline companion.....

*looking at a destroyed toy* "but i was just playing with it....".

  You are so handsome. My mommy wants a cocktoo, but she isn't sure she has enough home time to be fair to it, to own one.

Come visit me, Joey, MsP & Terri.

  Hi Max
I just talked to Izzy and I told her she had to be nicer to you. Why do girls always pick on us? I'm so glad Mom got me away from that mean girl. I'm an only bird now and much happier. I'm glad you have a new home that loves you very much too. I voted for you too!

  Hi Max
Thanks for the reply and visit.

Yeah I actually felt sick for days after I found out what happened at that pet shop, all the birds were gone. He was lucky. But I just could not beleicve how someone could do that to these loving creatures.

So my Zazoo is even more precious to me . I gave ya a vote too. :)

Welcome to the birdchannel. My name is carmine and I also am a Goffins Cockatoo, we are the most fun, and I love trying to be the boss around my brother and sisters. They being an Umbrella Cockatoo, and African Grey and a White Bellied Caique. The Caique is the most difficult and challenges my authority all the time, but for the ost part we all get along. Come visit my site.

  Hey Max!
Well didn't you find a wonderful home! You lucky bird! I'm a lucky bird'll have to come visit me to see my story. I'm so glad your human mom saw you there at PetCo! Regardless, some humans are just put in the right place at the right time....and that's what happened to you! My mom likes to scream with me too. I think the neighbors think we're idiots...but we're really just having fun! My mom sings "Row, row, row your boat" with me every morning. The last line she changed to "let's hear Buddy scream" and then her and I scream at the top of our lungs! Dad just shakes his head and says we're not right. I say, sometimes screaming just feels so good! Talk to you later....birdie hugs, Buddy

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