I am a bird rescuer and I got a call about 2 and a half years ago telling me that this family had a loud obnoxious bird that they were going to set free in the wild unless someone came and picked it up. This turned out to be my Nikki who was only very lonely with that family and needed someone to love him..

Hi! My name is Nikki

I am a Cockatoo from Gardendale, AL.

Pretty Boy.
And he can say Hello Pretty Boy very well. And quite often at that!


11 years old   M

Cockatoo

Nikki loves scrambled egg. He likes sandwiches of any kind as long as they have mayonnaise on them. He likes blueberries and strawberries but isnt fond of grapes or banannas. He aslo loves tapioca pudding.

My shoulder! Almost always he is on my shoulder. He is very curious about everything that I do. He also loves his perch on top of his cage where he sits and observes everything going on in our home. He spends quite a bit of time on his play gym also. He was very quick to learn all the tricks that it has.

He hates cold water. The only water he will drink is warm water and if you try to mist him down with cool water he pitches a fit.

From Nikki: I LOVE her hair! I like to perch on her head and play with her hair. She also has a great shoulder that has become my fav spot to hang out. She loves me and gives me all the attention I want. Thats what I love most of all about my mommy.

He must have a strawberry every morning. If not, he squawks till you give him one then he is fine. He craves attention and always lets you know where he is!.

God, He loves the little birds and showes them what to do. If God so loves the little birds, I know He loves me too..

  Hi Nikki
I'm so glad u have a good loving home now, people want birds for the novility, then don't educate themselves on their personalities, therefore u have situations like yours, it's a crying shame. People are so cruel. Birds are the most loving, affectionate creatures there is. come by for a visit. Oh, you are georgous.

Come visit me, ~CoCoPuff~, ~Rusty~, ~ Romey~Merry Christmas & Our Angel Wings Toy Shoppe.

  Hi Nikki
It's so good to see all the 'toos espicially those handsome boys! I'm glad your mom found you and gave you such a good home. We 'toos can be a little difficuly if people don't know what they are getting into. Mom just got me a little sister (another umbrella) but before this she had been considering adopting a rescue bird. There is a rescue in MO that has a couple of Moluccan females that she would have loved to bring home but she was really scared that she would get one home that had really bad habits already and she wouldn't beable to fix 'em & then I would learn them too! And she was also worried about the reputation that Moluccans have for being much louder & more destructive that Umbrellas (don't know if that is true!)so needless to say I got a baby umbrella sister this last wk. Moms a little upset...the breeder she got my sis, Gabby, from said that Gabby was completely weaned and so far mom says it doesn't look like Gabby has ever seen anything but baby formula. The breeder also clipped Gabbys wings which mom had asked her not to do (my wings aren't clipped. Rocky sent us some info on weaning and it says clipping a babys wings before it becomes food independant can slow the weaning process down & cause behavioral problems in the future...So mom says she thinks Gabby will work out & be a good sis to me she's kinda wondering if she might shoulda gone with a rescue...don't tell Gabby I said that (its not her fault) So I'm so glad to here that you got rescued
kisses, Fergie

Come visit me, Fergie & Gabby.

You are such a handsome boy! I'm glad that your mom rescues birds, that is awesome. And the strawberry story is pretty funny! Have you heard of "Parrot Toy Angels?" You should check out their website, they make very cool toys that we love!

  greetings from shannigans
Hello, you are very handsome. I am loud, I want my breakfast when I want it and I dont like loud music so I let Mom know. I dont like strawberries, but I like seedless grapes and bananas, sweet potatoes too. I wish my Mom could find somebirdy who needs a home. My Mom wants to be a zoologist and she loves animals/birds. She loves pizza too,hehe. Good night, tweet dreams.

Come visit me, Babycakes, Snigglefritz, Pumpkin, HALDIR AND PINK LADY, Sparkle and I am lost, escaped my cage, Shadow & Shannigans.
