 Umbrella cockatoo

I picked up this bird a few months ago.she is 3 years old and very friendly.She likes everyone mostly kids.She goes every place with me including all the fast food places.She eats everything I eat all most.If I am eating something she jumps down comes up to me and stick her head in the same glass of Gatorade Iam drinking.She eats ice cream and also french fries and if I don’t give her these things she screams at me.Can someone tell me what she can and cant eat.

My cockatiel handbook says that not chocolate, not anything to sugary or fatty, and I think cockatiels and cockatoos are enough alike for that to apply.

A variety diet is the best diet for hook bills, but you really need to try and keep the fried foods and dairy scarce.

Here is a link to a great, varied, and healthy diet for your much loved psittici friend from the rescue I used to work with. This link can give you some great ideas of what is ok for your umbrella cockatoo to eat.

Hey i have two umbrella cockatoos i had them for around 9-12 years. We feed them what we eat. What they really like is shrimp, peanut butter crackers or anything with peanut butter, pasta (really like pasta),fruits, peanuts or any type of nut try and get something with a shell so they can break it off, oatmeal cookies, etc... but they love shrimp, pasta and peanut butter the most. Never feed any animal chocolate lol.
