We sometimes hear people mention that they might adopt a cockatoo as a pet. They believe they are easy to take care of because you do not have to clean them or deal with shedding.
What they do not understand is that a cockatoo needs something other than cleaning. It is a social bird and needs human company actually more than most other popular pets do. Unlike a dog that will be content to lie down next to you, a cockatoo will want more.
A cockatoo will not feel well taken care of until it sits on your arm and plays with you. One of the things you will have to do is crack jokes to make it laugh. Yes, you have to find ways to keep it entertained.
Chatting and joker-telling is the only way that you will be able to bond with it. You have to speak to it as you would to a little child who is able to understand simple speech.
In the video below, the man is doing exactly that. He is giving the cockatoo a moment of its life. He cracks one joke after another that leaves the cockatoo laughing hysterically.
Take a moment and watch as he does it like an expert, he obviously enjoys every bit of it himself.
