The Ducorp’s cockatoo is sometimes referred to as Solomons cockatoo and they come from the Solomon Islands. Ducorp’s cockatoos are very affectionate and intelligent birds that will usually learn to say a few words and/or phrases. When hand feeding Ducorp’s cockatoos it takes about 4 months for them to wean. During the weaning process and sometimes for months after being weaned it is not uncommon for them to cry often. Like any other cockatoo they love to chew, so offer them a lot of toys with wood which will keep them entertained and happy. Their noise level is considered to be a medium noise level unlike Umbrella cockatoos and Moluccan cockatoos in which the noise level is considered to be loud. When thinking about getting a new bird keep in
mind what size cage is needed to house the bird, and if you have enough space in your home for the cage. A Ducorp’s cockatoo should be kept in a cage at least 32” wide x 23” deep x 60” tall, and bigger is always better. Remember like other types of cockatoos, Ducorp’s have a great deal of powder which could cause problems for people who have allergies or asthma.
