How about getting him some lessons? Or play a tune and see if he can learn it!

Not surprised Mercedes..these a native birds of Australia and belong in the can you think that you could ever replace that...those beaks are for shredding off bark..digging into branches and trunks of trees to get grubs..not to mention they can live up to 100years old (as mentioned before) even in captivity.

Out of my five cockies, every one of them is a toy manipulator as well as a mulcher. Cockatoos in general are the sort that likes to see what a toy will do as well as munching it. If you have a cockatoo, baby wooden "stacking" toys and "nesting cups" fascinate them and they will actually learn to stack and nest them, then unstack them. and dump them. Make sure to get US made baby safe toys though, you can't trust there might not be something like lead in the paint of Chinese imports. Stainless steel measuring cups would also be a good choice, with the added benefit that they make a NOISE! Cockatoos love anything that can make a NOISE! I had (bird specific) toys that played a tune when the bird managed to push the button; they wore them out.
