Description

Hi my name is Georgie I am a beautiful and rare cockatoo, I’m crossed between a Galah and a Citron crested cockatoo, hence my stunning colours.

I am about 5 years old and was handed into Birdline because I am very noisy and can be a challenge to handler. I am a very demanding cockatoo, and I like to be the boss. When I don’t get my own way I will fly, attack and bite. I am therefore looking for a home that is experienced with cockatoos. I need someone who can give me the time and attention, routine and structure I need and will be consistent in saying NO, so that I don’t get too big for my boots.

I am a bird with a massive personality and a very loud voice! I will step up to come out and go back into my cage and I love cuddles and sometimes kisses and tickles. I like to chat a lot, some of it is gibberish (lol) but I do clearly say “Good Boy Georgie” and “Night, Night Georgie”.  If I like you, I will greet you by bobbing my head up and down whilst wolf whistling.  My favourite thing is to go in the shower, and I will dance and sing while in there.

I am good at eating my seed and pellets but I’m not keen on fruit and veg. My safe house family give it to me everyday anyway and I show them what I think of it, by throwing it onto the floor! My cage is a lovely size and I have lots of toys in it to keep me occupied – I am very clever and can unscrew the clip that they hang from and chuck them around! I go to bed about 9pm and when it’s close to that time I will say ”goodnight Georgie, bedtime” until I am covered up. I like to get a full 12 hours beauty sleep, or I’m a little grumpy in the morning.

My safe house family love me, but I am a little bit too unpredictable, boisterous and loud for them. I want attention all the time and when I get over excited or jealous, I will bite them. I love my safe house dad the most and want to be with him all the time. When he goes to work, I ask him where he is going and let out a very loud scream when he leaves – but I do stop squawking as soon as my disapproval has been heard. As soon as my safe house dad comes in the gate. I make lots of noise until he says hello to me. I will then ask him constantly for a shower and we dance together and make DJ scratching sounds. But if I don’t get my own way I will bite him too. I am pretty quiet in the day when I am home with my safe house mum and I talk to her and even let her feed me and clean my cage. But I only tolerate her and the children, and I’d prefer not to share Dad with these other humans.

So how about it, are you a male who is experienced with cockatoos? Could you give me the tough love I need? I am very clever and with time, and training I promise I could be more patient and better behaved.
