I've been reading about them, and watching youtube videos of them and I'm absolutely smitten with them. But the fact that they are a cockatoo, has me being very cautious about the idea of getting one. I really, really love the idea of having one, and free flight training it. Which would be really helpful for it's health since they are prone to fatty tumors.
Could an rb2 handle someone who worked a normal work schedule and wasn't home full time unlike other cockatoos? Currently, I'm only away from the house MWF 8am-2pm. Which I'm sure any bird could handle. But realistically, in a couple years I'll probably be gone M-F 8am-5-6pm. So I wouldn't want to get a bird that would be miserable in a few years because of my decision to get one.
I currently have a caique, and he's pretty good at rolling with the punches: Ie: he handles change very well. I don't have him on any kind of routine at all, and he seems to be thriving on it. I know that other cockatoos would not like this one bit, but would a rose breasted?
There's so many websites and they all have very vague information about them, I want specific nitty gritty hour by hour detail and I'm just not finding it, do you know of any good(trustworthy) websites I can learn from?
