Hi! My name is Chicki

I am an Umbrella Cockatoo from Pocatello, ID.

Sometimes my owners call me chakita banana.

17 years old   F

Umbrella Cockatoo

I don't have any favorite treats. Right now I am a picky eater but my mom is trying to help me with that.

My favorite spots are on the door of my cage and under a blanket next to my mom.

I don't like it when my dad lays on the couch.

I love it when my owner cuddles with me.

I like to chase my dad around the living room(that is after I get him off the couch!).

Life has its ups and downs but learning to get through them make you stronger..

  Hello Chicki
I think that you are a beautiful lady. My mom told me to calm down because I was acting silly when I saw you.
So, here is a vote for you.

Have an awesome night.

Come visit me, Paulie.

  Happy for you!
I am so glad you're in a much better home now! I'll never understand how people can mistreat birds or anything else. I have a female eclectus friend named VB who was mistreated so bad she plucked out most of her feathers. Please don't do that. Thank goodness she has a good home now too. Here's my vote. You deserve it1

Come visit me, Liberty, Star, Charlotte & Alex.

  Chikkkkiiiiii you are BEAUTIFUL!
You are one beautiful girl. I didn't know there were other beautiful birds that looked like me! My mom says I have to learn to be a bird, and she has lots of other babies that she is introducing me to. My great wish is that I can learn to whistle like the other babies, cuz mom says I sound like an opera singer when I try to whistle. I hope you are happy and comfy in your new home. I am adjusting, but mom makes it easy.

Come visit me, coco.

  Hi Chicki
I was reading all the mail everyone has left me and saw you left a note! I just love hearing my Mom say "Mayan, you have more mail! I love hearing from everyone from all over. It's like pen pals for birds! I'm so glad you have a new home you love and I only hope you get more and more comfortable as time goes on. Have a wonderful evening!

Come visit me, Cricket, Chile, Safari, Kitts, Cayman, Cayenne & Mayan.

  Hi Chicki
Welcome to the channel! Nice hair-do (I mean feather-do)! I'm an Umbrella too, so I wear the same kind of feather-do as you! Good luck with your new mom. I have a brother that is in his 3rd home here (he's a Moluccan Cockatoo). He had a rough start here as well but eventually he came around. Hang in there. Your new mom sounds wonderful. I'm sure you'll do well in your new "forever-home". Come visit me sometime. Birdie hugs, Clyde '>

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

  Glad to hear you are in a loving new home! Our sister Raja had a tough 4 years before she came to live with us, she had to live in a chinchilla cage with no toys and she has yucky oily feathers because of her diet. She is pretty mean but our mom loves her anyway! Love your motto! Heres a vote for you pretty girl! =)

Come visit me, Echo, Raja & Nala.
