Moluccan cockatoos are affectionate birds that bond strongly with their owners, thriving on the social interaction. It's a rather cuddly bird that can even be a little clingy at times. As pets, they really want to be just as close to their chosen person as they would be to a mate in the wild.
This parrot stands out from the rest because of their salmon-pink feathers and brilliantly colored crest. Their beauty rivals their boisterous, comical personalities, but they need an owner who is completely dedicated to them.
Sweet and affectionate may be understatements when it comes to describing the Moluccan. It’s a bird that loves to be loved and really wants nothing more than someone (bird or person) to be with at all times. As a pet, the Moluccan tends to turn into a one-person bird.
They are also very intelligent and thrive on challenges. Moluccans can learn to dance and do tricks and they can be quite the entertaining comedians when in a good mood.
Moluccans are not the best talking parrot. They can mimic some sounds, though many owners say that it’s more like yelling than talking. These birds are also screechers and will scream for attention, when unhappy, or no apparent reason. It’s a loud scream, too, so they’re certainly not ideal for anyone with neighbors who enjoy peace and quiet.
While Moluccans are known to be extremely affectionate, some can be aggressive at times. This is particularly true of males as they age. A crank cockatoo can bite and this bird is designed to crack tough nuts, so it’s beak is very powerful. For this reason, they’re not a good pet for families with children
Moluccan cockatoos are one of the largest white cockatoos. They average about 20 inches in length from the beak to the tip of the tail feathers.
This species requires a lifetime commitment as they can live up to 70 years.
