This cockatoo species has a lively, silly personality. Extremely playful and interactive, the Bare-Eyed is an excellent pet in a medium size! This is one of my favorite species! I have owned a Bare-Eyed Cockatoo as a pet for over 30 years and she is truly delightful! She is the very first cockatoo that I hand-raised from an egg. She talks quite well as do many Bare-Eyed Cockatoos. See her goofy personaliy in photos!

At two-three weeks of age, these chicks are starting to pinfeather.

Some people do not like the looks of the Bare-Eyed but I think they have beautiful coloration and the comical look matches the personality of these wonderful small cockatoos. Their smaller size and relatively quiet voice are advantages over the larger cockatoos for some situations.

 
This is my pet Bare-Eyed Cockatoo, Poopy. She is the very first cockatoo I raised and is a delightful member of our family!
 

Like most other white cockatoo species, Bare-Eyed should be fed a lean diet. A small seed mix ,such as that for cockatiels, can be given in a small amount.
Sprouted seeds are highly recommended.
China Prairie Company makes a wonderful kit for sprouting fresh seeds and grains for your bird(s).
Bare Eyed Cockatoos will eat a variety of fresh vegetables and fruits if offered a large variety at an early age.

Depending upon the individual bird and its socialization, a Bare-Eyed Cockatoo can be a wonderful family pet! Natural clowns, their personalities bloom when given encouragement and attention. Caging should be as large as possible with much freedom allowed out of the cage.
A playpen-top cage is recommended.
