Black Cockatoo

Australian Black Cockatoos are large, intelligent birds. They make wonderful pets but are naturally destructive and noisy so require an owner who is willing to provide them with the necessary stimulation to keep them happy and healthy.

At Kellyville Pets we love our animal friends and are committed to matching owners with the right pet and providing customers with unsurpassed advice, service and selection of products. This is our way of ensuring our animals have the best possible start in their new home with you. All birds come with a 14 day health guarantee and a 7 day cooling off period as part of our standard policies and procedures. 

 

 

 



Black Cockatoo Information:

Black Cockatoo Size:

Very Large 55-65cm

Black Cockatoo Life Span:

25-50 years

Black Cockatoo Temperament:

Their beaks are tremendously strong and they could easily snap off a finger if they wanted to, but they are gentle, non-aggressive birds. They adapt well to captivity and love interacting and playing games with humans

Black Cockatoo Grooming:

Regular wing clipping is recommended to prevent flying away or any injuries to the bird.
Giving your black cockatoo the opportunity to bathe is important. Frequent bathing serves several purposes. It prevents dry skin, softens the keratin coating which helps with moulting, and keep your bird bright and clean.

Your bird should have access to a bathing dish with fresh water every day.


Black Cockatoo Feeding:

Balanced nutrition is very important for Black Cockatoos, They do well on a diet consisting of a high quality commercial pellet and seed mix, and supplemented with lots of fresh bird-safe fruits and vegetables. Black Cockatoos are a fiend for fresh Eucalyptus Leaves!

Black Cockatoo Colouring:

Red tail Black Cockatoo or Yellow Tail black cockatoo.

Black Cockatoo Cage:

Black Cockatoo's can be quite active, and should be allowed time outside their cage each day to play, explore, and stretch their wings.

The cage should be as large as possible. The height of the cage is less important than the width and length. Your bird needs to be able to flap its wings without risking injury. Ideally the minimum length and width should be 30x48x60 inches at least! The bigger the better!
