How Much Does an Umbrella Cockatoo Cost?

Umbrella cockatoos are pleasing white birds that are one of the most common types of birds that people keep as pets.  They are considered to be one of the most affectionate of their species.  Some can talk, although their verbal capabilities do not match that of other pet birds like macaws.  Yet, since they known to be cuddlers, many people prefer them to the talkers.  Even though they are known as cuddlers, it sometimes takes a little while with the new owner to become comfortable enough to start cuddling.

    I have two umbrella cockatoos for five years, they are so adorable. They live free (no cage) around the house.

  2. Lynn G. (Spokane,  Washington) paid $800.00 and said:

    Bought a 13 year old female umbrella cockatoo who had basically been abandoned by her former owner and left with people who didn’t want her or know how to handle her. Poor birdy was really stressed out. She is now happy and healthy and so very sweet. The initial price included a nice cage. Just do enough research first to make sure you would be happy living with a demanding 2 year old for the rest of your life before getting a cockatoo!!

    Was it worth it? Yes
