Hi, I’m Dewey! I’m a lovely Ducorps Cockatoo.
Not much is known about my past.
I have plucked many of my feathers from all over my body, but I am still a very handsome bird.
I am a shy bird and will need an experienced carer to help me develop.
I enjoy a diet of fresh fruit and vegetables, supplemented by AS30 seed mix and the occasional treat!
I like to spend time on top of my cage, playing with a box of toys and I love throwing things across the room! My favourite thing to do, though, is to sing and dance with people – I would do this all day long!
I have toys in my cage, but I’m not really bothered by them. I enjoy shredding toys sometimes, and destroying cardboard, but I mustn’t have boxes in my cage because they can make me nesty, hormonal, and territorial.
Dewey can be a complex bird and he needs a home where he can have a consistent routine. He will need an experienced carer – any change in his routine upsets him and he will let you know his feelings!
A home where someone can be with him all day would be ideal as he needs company in order to be content, but he can be a real sweetheart with people whose company he enjoys – he prefers women.
He currently lives with another bird and they spend time out of their cages together, but avoid each other.
Because of his complex nature, Dewey will need an experienced and confident carer who can be at home all day to attend to his needs. In the right hands though, he has the potential to be an amazing companion!
