"My wife and I just adopted Dee-Dee from a friend. She is 2 years old. We have had her for just a week but we have all adapted to each other very quickly. She loves the attention we all give her, including our three year old daughter. She has never tried to bite any of us since day one. We are obviously all still getting to know each other but she is really showing her willingness to cuddle. My wife works from home so Dee-Dee is never alone. She has had a good apetite, loves to come out of her cage and stand on the perch adjacent to the roof of the cage. We are having problems getting her to step up onto our shoulder or hands, but we are working with her. The one thing that we have noticed, and I have read so much about how they like to play with toys and chew them up. We have spent about $100 in toys and she hasn't touched any of them. We went to a person that works in a pet store that owns a Cockatoo and she pointed out some toys that her bird loves. We purchased them and Dee-Dee pays no attention to them at all. We hope this is just a timing thing and as she gets more comfortable she will start enjoying her toys more. But for the week we have had her, she has already made a loving impact on us all."
