CockatooHabitat, Exercise & Play

Where Cockatoos Like to Live

The size of a cage shape is very important for the bird, suare or rectangular cages are more appropriate for parrots. As always the larger the cage the better for housing parrots. Make sure there are enough ledges, ropes and toys within the cage for your Cockatoo to amuse itself.

Cockatoo Exercise & Play

A cockatoo should be allowed plenty of opportunity for exercise.  3 to 4 hours a day outside of the cage is ideal.  As mentioned before, like all parrots, Cockatoos are very social animals and must spend time each day out of their cage and with their owners. They are naturally curious and do crave attention from their owners.

Toys are very important for a Cockatoo, toys to chew, toys to shred, puzzle toys, simple toys, complicated toys, wood toys,  rope toys, raffia toys or even leaving the TV on when you are away.

Cockatoos love to learn and perform activities like singing, playing, laughing and dancing. They are also good at performing various tricks and love taking baths. They have impressive vocal abilities and are dedicated chewers, which must be considered before deciding on cockatoos as pets as they often chew the furniture.
