    Most parrots but cockatoos more than any others NEED attention. They crave attention and demand it from their humans. They are very social and to them you are their whole world. You are their flock, their mate, their friend. They are about equivalent to a 3 year old human chikd in their need to be with their human. You can spend time with your Ella while she is on her perch and you share your supper with her - or your breakfast. You can spend time with her watching TV. You need to spend time with her providing attention and playing. If she doesn't get the attention she is going to pluck, she will keep screaming and will probably be very depressed. You need to decide to devote the time for Ella - for the next 50 years or so --- or to find a suitable home for her. She is young, tame and wants to be loved and there should be no problem finding a new family for her but she can't be stuck in a cage without socialization and companionship. It would be like putting yourself in solitary confinement. Ella knws you are home and will make big noises to get your attention. She is calling her mate her flock. They just can't take isolation.

    Take her out.

    Hi I am not sure what you mean by ' I have grown up' That statement would usually be followed by you saying that undoubtedly you realise that her being out of cage ONLY 3 hours is not nearly enough and that you have started to spend more time with her. Here it seems exactly the opposite and I'm seeing a bit of has as to you finding or wanting to find the time to spend with your bird. Cockatoo are extremely sensitive and very much like humans when it comes to needing to be interacted with and feeling the touch and love of there owner in order to live a happy productive life. It seems like you have a bird that does want that interaction of a human and companionship which is already a big hurdle a good advance in the right direction. If you do not give her the time and attempt she craves she may actually regress and will not online one depressed but will have to learn all over again that touch and human companionship is a good thing.A parrot is a lifetime commitment and absolutely should not be a quick decision just because you see one and see how cute or smart they cannot does not mean they automatically come like that.they have bad behaviours like any other animal and since they are so smart are easily imprinted on and sadly affected by neglect,as well as definitely need Alot more time than a hamster .you cannot just leave a parrot in the corner with some toys and bring him. Or her out when it suits you. This will definitely cause depression and even aggression that will come very noticeably in the form of plucking and evening due to resentment. It is not fair or even practical for somebody to own a parrot before doing your research and prepare your self for both good and bad . The thing is that parrots are wild animals and they are going to always be instinctively that.thereis no such thing as a bad parrot just BAD OWNERS. You may have just impulsively bought this bird and have not been correctly educated and now you have your hands full. Right now it sounds like your bird still wants human interaction and is wanting to be loving so it will be extra easy to find someone who has experience with large birds to take in this one.please do yourself and this bird a favour and find a home in which he or she will thrive in. Don't feel bad about doing what's best for the animal.nobody can call you a bad owner if you give the bird up for the sake of its happiness but if you decide to keep this bird and do not find adequate time and education to give it a better quality of life that is when you can be considered a bad person

    Years ago I raised several cockatoos from the egg. It's a 24/7 commitment but well worth it. I am very interested in a hyacinth macaw egg. I had a pair many years ago and absolutely loved them. I never did get them to breed them before and had to sell them due to a divorce settlement.

i was very inexperienced n listened to my young grandchildren in helping me pick out some finches not knowing i shouldnt mix different varieties and ended up w a female zebra finch i believe a male white and black society finch and an old spice finch my friend didnt want. i bought a larger flight cage so theyd be happier. and despite later finding out u shouldnt mix different species the zebra finch and white n black society finch mated but the cage i bought was faulty and i woke up n the female zebra finch squeezed out of an opening in the back n i found her dead i believe my kitty got her in the middle of the night along w my old spice finch and only the white n black society finch was in the cage and continued sitting on the eggs until today then abandoned the nest. so i was devistated and sent my daughter in law and grandchildren to the pet store and told her buy the last 4 society finches in hopes id get at least 1 or 2 females and didnt want to make the same mistake mixing different varieties of finch but when she got back the 4 new ones all looked the same i believe theyre chocolate pied and the are much smaller than the white n black bird i thought was a society finch. now im confused and wondering if the white n black one thats much bigger isnt a society finch at all. can anybody answer this for me
