I Am Trying To Tame My One Goffin Cockatoo Tiki He Has Built Some Trust And Comes Up To Cage For Kisses And Head Scratches But Freaks When I Get him near my hand or a perch should i towel him to let him know that i am a ok person and talk to him and pet him? The other Goffin Tyson Is Tame But just not Tiki and tyson doesn't step up and they haven't made noise yet! Tyson told me hello yesterday

I wouldn't try toweling at all right now, I believe that is more than likely to freak him out more! Try offering treats through the bars and get him used to your hands that way

I second Daisy's post. Offer treats first and see if he will take them from your hands through the cage bars. Let us know how that goes - if it goes at all.

That's good :)

Cockatoo bites are VERY painful. An umbrella bit me and I'm not kidding I yelped like a dog when you step on its paw :( !!
