Our beautiful prince and princess are well trained and they are sweet to cuddly.They will be devoted to their owner,” If their special needs are not met, they may scream incessantly.These cute creatures would like nothing more than to be sewn to your body 24 hours a day. They crave attention and love, and can become pests because of this trait.


Moluccan Cockatoo is the largest of the “white” cockatoos. The Moluccan cockatoo is a favorite among bird fanciers due to its striking appearance and wonderful temperament. At 20 inches (50 cm), this is the largest of the white cockatoos, with the female generally being larger than the males. They weigh between 640 and 1025 grams – the average being 850 grams. Moluccans are also called salmon-crested cockatoos because of the salmon-pink feathers that comprise most of their head crest, which they will display when they are excited, angry, afraid, or thrilled with something.. The Moluccan cockatoo is a rosy-pink color, with the depth of the pinkness varying per individual. The feet and beak are black, but are generally covered with powder down, which make them look gray — don’t worry, this is absolutely healthy. These are very social animals, and get along well with each other, so if you are not home often, you may want to consider getting two. This should not affect their pet quality.


Highly unsuitable for 99.9% of Parrot owners. Unfortunately, young hand-reared Moluccan Cockatoos are often the subject of impulse buying. Can there be anything more sweet, vulnerable affectionate, cuddly and adorable than a young bird of this species? And can there be anything more difficult to control and to live with than an unhappy adult?

A suitable owner would be…

100% committed to providing a stimulating and loving environment for as long as he or she lives or is physically able to care for the bird.

One who understands the unpredictable temperament of this Cockatoo, this takes experience. A sudden wrong move that makes the bird over-excited could land you in an A&E hospital department with a very serious wound. An attack from a Moluccan can be very sudden and unexpected if you cannot read their behaviour.

Able to tolerate ear-splitting screeches of a magnitude seldom encountered in the avian world.

Willing to love and care for the bird even when it is feather-plucked or self-mutilating.
