Fred

Fred is a greenwing macaw. He is estimated at 12-13 years old. He is unsure of hands and movements when you approach him but so badly wants to find his person and learn to trust again. He has stepped up for us and he has let us pet him. He has the BIGGEST personality, says hello and laughs. He absolutely LOVES being out, he can also be very LOUD. You will be REQUIRED to join the parrot project on top of his fee to ensure his future home has all the tools needed to continue his positive reinforcement and training. He will need a LARGE cage, think 5-6FT tall by 3-4FT wide and deep. He will be available after Feb 12th.

Adoption Fee: $600 (Which includes your Parrot Project membership for one year)

 

Harley

Harley is a 30+ DNA'd Male Harlequin macaw. He CANNOT be in a home with other macaws unless you are willing to keep him in a completely separate area of the home. Once he forms a bond, he's very sweet. He plucks during hormone season, but being away from other macaws may help that.


You WILL be required to have or buy an appropriate sized cage(MINIMUM of 5 or 6 FT tall). He is currently out at foster.

Adoption Fee: $400

 

Andy

Andy is a female Red-Lored Amazon. She is older(28) and is looking for her forever retirement home. Andy came to us with a severely over-grown beak and is still getting corrective shapings from our Avian Vet. Andy also has arthritis and may eventually need to be on some pain meds in the future for it. She does have cataracts in both eyes, she can still see but some days are better than others. Aside from old age, she is very sweet to the person she likes and chooses. She enjoys to sit with her person and just watch TV or hang out. Andy can be loud and she can be aggressive to others once she has bonded to her person. The right home would be one that has access to an avian vet regularly to continue shaping her beak and one that will allow her to live out the rest of her life without high expectations.

Andy does have a special cage requirement that is to be met!

Adoption Fee: $500(higher due to antibiotics/blood testing/constant beak shapings)

 

Ike

Ike is an estimated 30-35 year old blue and gold macaw. He has a DNA tattoo confirming he is a male. He is very sweet once you earn his trust and he settles in. Ike enjoys a head scratch and will step up, his favorite treats are nuts! He makes it very clear as to who he likes and who he doesn’t. He would be best in a patient and experienced home. He does have cataracts forming and some arthritis in his feet.
Adoption fee: $400

Sonny

Blue and Gold Macaw

Sonny is a 21 year old female(has laid eggs in the past) blue and gold macaw who will not tolerate men. She forms too much of a bond with woman, so we are requiring someone who has years of macaw experience to apply. She needs someone to continue her positive reinforcement to correct her behavior. Sonny has had a toe removed in July 2020 to help with pressure sores/mobility issues from an injury from a previous home.

Adoption Fee: $400

 

Mercenary

Blue & Gold Macaw

Mercenary is a confirmed male(DNA tattoo) and is an ex breeder bird. He is estimated to be between 35-40 years old. He's not very tame, but he likes to be talked to and pet on occasion. He would be best in a home where he can just be himself. 
Adoption Fee $400

 

Casper & Bello

Casper and Bello will be adopted together, they are both MALE umbrella cockatoos. Casper has a couple of toes on either foot that have been broken in the past but have since healed and cause no issues. 

By adopting two, you are greatly reducing a lot of the behavioral problems that could arise but it also means they can only go to a home who has large bird experience.


Bello is a handsome umbrella cockatoo who is 19 years old and was very much loved by his previous homes. Unfortunately after COVID hit, it was very apparent to his owner that she could not provide him with what he needed to be happy, which is the companionship of another cockatoo. 


Both boys are eagerly looking for a family of their own, they are both full or life and chatterboxes. They will require someone who has previous experience with big birds but we are confident they will settle and become part of the family in no time. They have been in a very busy household and have adjusted well with other birds and dogs. We never recommend them with small children, but preteens and up would be fine. 

We try to set up our new bird owners the best we can so $250 of your adoption fee is used to purchase you a one year membership in Level One and the Parrot Project through the Animal Behavioral Center. This membership give you the tools needed to establish a relationship, target training, learning how to prevent negative behaviors like screaming and biting(which can be a real challenge with cockatoos). It also provides you with a community of supportive knowledgable bird owners led by Lara Joseph.

Adoption Fee: $400

 

Ricky & Negan

Ricky is a hybrid(sulfur/Triton) and Negan is an umbrella, both are males. These boys will require an experienced home but they are both very food motivated so they are ready to start training. Ricky is a little nervous around people but we believe will quiet down in a home.

Negan is a very handsome umbrella cockatoo that is roughly 12 years old. He has had a few homes in the past but is confident now that he has a friend he will find a home. Negan is a little more outgoing than Ricky and of course tow male cockatoos will keep you on your toes so they will need an experienced home but we promise you they are worth it.

Buddy

Buddy is a male Goffin Cockatoo born in 2001. He had the same owner for quite a few years before he came to Cockatoo Ranch. He is extremely possessive of his old owner so when Grandchildren moved in it was not a good situation. He has regrown his feathers since coming to us, he gets along well with a household with multiple animals and lots of things going on. He thinks he is a huge eagle and loves to show you big wings. He will require someone that is willing to take their time and build a relationship with him. Buddy will only be adopted out with another cockatoo.
