Goffins, one of the smallest of the cockatoo species, are known for their outgoing and gregarious personalities. They are impish little clowns who are full of constant energy. They`re quite affectionate and tend to be more independent than most cockatoos. I fit that description to a tee! I bounce up and down when I am excited, jump onto your shoulder when you walk by and love to hang out on a shoulder or my play top all day. If my cage door starts to close, I know how to push off with one leg `til it opens the door wide up again. I say, "Hi Homer" in a very cute little voice. Also, if I?m tired and want to go to bed, or I don`t like a certain person, I say "goodnight, bye-bye", get in my cage and turn my back to you! I am six years old, and lived with one nice lady all of my life. My owner hates to give me up but she has to move into an apt, and though I`m a quiet ?too, apartments and `toos just don`t mix- so she wants me to find a forever home with someone with cockatoo experience. Goffins Cockatoos can be very sweet, loving and cuddly if well socialized and trained well. (I, for one, am very well socialized!) However, they are still loud birds (they should not be kept in apartments or housing situations where neighbors live close and might be bothered by the noise) and cockatoos can be very demanding and needy. I would just love to find a new human, as nice as my last, to spend the next 20 years or so with. If you`d like a handsome, friendly, silly little fellow to hang out with, I`m your guy! http://www.answers.com/topic/goffin-s-cockatoo http://www.centralpets.com/animals/birds/parrots/prt811.html
