The goofy Bare-Eyed Cockatoo (Cacatua sanguinea) is a naturalclown and is an extremely entertaining pet! This species
is also good at mimicry and can be a talented talker. Atlhough it is not as flashy as some of the other cockatoo species, its personality shines!


The elegant little Ducorp Cockatoo (Cacatua ducorps) is native to the Solomon Islands. Once very rare in aviculture, this species is bred in captivity with regularity now and is delightful as a pet or in the aviary.

The Moluccan Cockatoo
(Cacatua moluccensis) is one
of the most affectionate of the
cockatoos. If given a lot of
attention, this species becomes
a devoted pet. It is extremely
intelligent and requires a lot of
freedom and activity.


 We have been raising the Rose-Breasted Cockatoo (Eolophus roseicapillus) since 1981. Delightful as pets and wonderful in aviaries, this is one of our favorite species. Rosies should be fed a lean diet to avoid fatty lipomas. Known by the name of Galah in its native Australia, there it is an agricultural pest.


 One of the most popular cockatoos,
the Umbrella (Cacatua alba) is
affectionate and intelligent. This large species requires a lot of attention and freedom. Native to Indonesia, it was exported by the thousands and today
is quite common and is a prolific breeder
in captivity.
