Cockatoo

My cockatoo ivy is aproximently 3 years old. Ivy loves to be social he will attach to one person the most but make sure he's the one that gets the attention. Ivy can be loud but we have trained him to be quiet on command but when he wants to be held and you're not paying attention to him he will yell and scream. It's fun to live with a bird he is very social and will go to others if you spend a little bit of time with him. Ivy has learned so many words and is very loving and is always there when you need someone to talk to. ( hey, it's way better then talking to you're self) if you do get a bird make sure you spend a lot of time with him/her to form a good relationship with him/ her. Parrots are a good addition to a family but with small children be careful and make sure to supervise children with birds at all times.
