The Rose Breasted Cockatoo is relatively quiet and has a very outgoing personality with a good ability to mimic human speech
Physical Description: Rose-breasted Cockatoos are beautiful pet bird that are easily recognized by their pink and grey coloration. Their crest and top of the head is generally a lighter pink than the rest of the body, though some individuals have a crest that is practically white. Their chest, stomach, and portions of the underside of the wings are pink. Everything else is a pale grey.
Average Lifespan: 20 – 30 years
Sexing: The sexes differ only in eye color, though all juvenile birds will appear to be female. After they have reached maturity (typically around 5 years of age) the females will retain a brown iris, while the males will turn almost black. The darker the iris, the more likely it is to be male.
Origin: Central Australia Trainability: Domestic hand-fed babies make excellent pets for dedicated caregivers. Arguably, these parrots are among the most affectionate animals on the planet! Rose-breasted cockatoos do best in a quiet, subdued environment. Although the Rose-breasted Cockatoo is slightly more independent than the other Cockatoos, they still need a lot of attention. If you are unable to devote at least 2 hours of quality time with your parrot each day, then a Rose-Breasted Cockatoo is not for you. They are extremely playful and acrobatic. Anything and everything is a toy to them – especially if you don’t want them to have it. For this reason, we recommend a large variety of toys and plenty of supervision during play time. They can learn to speak, but are often difficult to understand. Rose-breasted Cockatoos will typically develop a small vocabulary of 5 or 6 of their favorite words and phrases.
Loudness: Cockatoos are among the loudest of the parrot species, so if you’re sensitive to noise we would suggest looking into other types of parrots. While the Rose-breasted Cockatoo isn’t as loud as some of the other Cockatoos, they are still not apartment pets.
Pricing: Rose-breasted Cockatoos can be fairly expensive birds, depending on your budget. Feel free to call our store at (954) 725-0088 for pricing and availability.
Health Guarantee of Our Birds
We have the strongest bird guarantee in the country, and more importantly, we stand behind our guarantee. The guarantee is simple: We guarantee that we are selling you a perfectly healthy bird. To verify that guarantee, within five days you need to go to an Avian Vet and get any and all testing you prefer to do on your bird, at your expense. We can guide you as to the tests we suggest. If the results are not perfect but the bird can be easily treated, then we pay for all medications and all treatment. If the results are unacceptable then we either replace your bird or refund 100% of the purchase price of your bird, at our option.
Bird Guarantee only lasts for the first five days
Since we have 100% control over the bird's environment at our store, but have no control over the bird once it leaves, we can only guarantee the bird for the first five days. We guarantee that when the bird leaves the store that it has been properly socialized, and that it is 100% healthy. Your new bird has been given an excellent start here at Golden Cockatoo, and it is now your responsibility to properly care for your bird.
