Here is our umbrella cockatoo hatching out. We
had to help this baby, as baby could not get out of
shell on it's own. In two of the photos we placed a
walnut to give you an idea of what size an umbrella
cockatoo egg and chick would be.
Baby umbrella cockatoo is day one below and
doing just great! Notice the white tip on the beak this
is what we call the egg tooth. The baby uses it to chip
out of the egg. it will soon disappear because the baby
will not have need of it any longer.
And look at us now (we are hungry), and yes
there was a second egg. The second baby umbrella
cockatoo hatched without any help. They are five and
nine days old in photos below:
Look at all the pin feathers! (left photo) They
look like little spikes sticking out all over. Here they
are 17 days (sleeping) and 21 days (eyes open).
We are standing up now at
23 & 27 days old. (right photo) The one with his mouth
open wider is 27 days, maybe because the 23 day old is
standing on his foot.
If you look real close you can see the little
crest being raised and lowered, they are excited knowing
their food is coming. You can hardly see the baby macaw,
but he is there on the right side, snuggling into the
umbrella cockatoo babies.
Baby blue and gold
macaw is very visible in this clip with the
two umbrella cockatoo babies.
Here we are umbrella cockatoo babies at 41 days
and 46 days in (left) photo, and 46 days again in
(right) photo. You can visibly see feathers emerging
from the pin feathers. Soon they will be growing into
those big feet. They kind of look a this stage as if
they have q-tips sticking out all over, lol. It's such
an amazing transformation as they feather out into such
a gorgeous bird.

Umbrella Cockatoos although not
prized for their talking ability many of them often
surpass the African Grey's talking ability. They are one
of the cuddly bird types and prefer to be not just on
you and with you but curled up in your arms as part of
your body. Thus giving them the nickname " The Velcro
Bird" among parrot types. True to their nature they are
not one to leave on a playstand when you leave the room
as you will soon hear the pitter patter of small feet on
your floor searching for you. For this reason they
should not be left unattended when let out to play for
they can get into trouble on their quest to find you.
Electrical cords and such are not their friends for
obvious reasons, among other household items they can
and will get into. It is not that they are bad birds but
that owners must take a more responsible stand in caring
for them. Which when properly cared for leads to a
wonderful companion of very longevity.
