Pinky is a ~40 year old female Moluccan Cockatoo who is participating in For the Love of Birds’ Help with Rehoming program. With this program she remains living with her current family while the rescue networks on his behalf for her next forever home.
From Pinky's family:
Pinky is a loving, cuddling and curious cockatoo.
She is in her early 40s, and is a vibrant pink with blue accents around her eyes.
She is well behaved and loves to snack on pistachios and pasta while you dance around to music.
Pinky favorite toys are wood and cardboard toys she can tear apart and chip with her beak.
She enjoys coming out of her cage but doesn’t stray far her home.
She loves to be scratched under her wings and back.
Pinky even enjoys getting hugs and giving kisses.
She will “click” her beak and flutter her tongue when she’s happy.
She is only vocal when something seems out of place and just before bedtime she lets out a goodnight squawk.
Pinky will even greet you and start to mimic your voice, or a barking dog, even a telephone.
Growing up Pinky would mimic my mother and ask “Where were you last night”,
Pinky even likes to say “goodnight”.
Pinky is ok with being held but only after she builds her trust. She likes to attach herself to a family member but will love interact with everyone.
Pinky has been disease tested for PBFD and Chlamydia. Pinky will be adopted with her cage, disease test results, toys and food to get her next home started.
