Cockatoo Essential Care Supplies

Last Updated on May 27, 2024 by Ali Shahid

Cockatoos require a large cage, at least 36″ L x 24″ W x 48″ H, with metal bars spaced 3⁄4 inches apart. The bottom should have a removable metal grate covered with habitat paper or paper-based bedding. They need a varied diet of pellets, fresh vegetables, fruits, and cooked grains, with calcium supplements like cuttlebones.

Cockatoos love to chew, so providing plenty of non-toxic wood and bird-safe toys is important for their entertainment and to prevent destructive behavior. Bathing is essential for their health and feather maintenance – you can provide a shallow dish or birdbath in their cage for preening.

Cockatoos also require exposure to UV light for 10-12 hours per day, placed about 12-18 inches from their perch. Regular vet checkups, wing trims, nail trims, and beak maintenance are also part of proper cockatoo care. I would recommend the following parrot-friendly essential care supplies for your pet cockatoos:
