Written Dec 5, 2004
In the meantime, Wayne named the playful and friendly fellow "Polygon". And to his shock, Polygon talked... and it wasn't just "Hello" he was saying. Polygon's chatting was a little more "complicated"...
As we listened to the many strange and wonderful things this Cockatoo could say, Wayne and I laughed so hard it brought tears to our eyes!
Polygon had just made me become a passionate Cockatoo lover. I never imagined that Cockatoos could be so charming and funny, and I never really had even imagined owning one.
For the last 12 years, I've learned A LOT about these feathered friends - mostly through the school of hard knocks (or should I say "bites")! I've gathered literally hundreds of tips and tricks on how to keep Cockatoos happy and health and, if you let me, I want to share this knowledge to help YOU in your journey to successfully resolve the Cockatoo challenges you might be facing.
I want to share with you my passionate quest to have the happiest, healthiest, and funniest Cockatoos possible!
For Many Cockatoo Owners, Having A Funny, Talking, Affectionate Cockatoo Is Too Sadly Only A Dream
But wouldn't it be great to have access to expert Cockatoo training knowledge that might make your dream have more chance of becoming reality?
I mean, I too have certainly discovered that not all Cockatoos are like Polygon at first...
Are you dealing with sore, even bloody fingers (bitten to death), ringing ears (those sonic screams), or simply a Cockatoo that refuses to speak... And you have no clue why he is mute as a fish, bites, or screams despite your best determined efforts?
I bet you didn't realize owning a Cockatoo would be so emotionally involving!
Cockatoos can BITE!!!
If you haven't already noticed, when some of these guys bite, they don't mess around... We're talking about beaks that Mother Nature designed to crack open hard nuts or rip through tough wood. You don't want these razor-sharp "feathered-pruners" snapping at your soft fingers... or worse... towards ears and eyes...
And what about when your Cockatoo becomes, or IS already, a constant screamer?
Cockatoos can SCREAM!!!
You know it's getting bad when your guests involuntarily spill their drinks after an 80-decibel Cockatoo scream, or when someone sits down quickly, holding their heart, worried that they might faint from the noise!
Some birds even scream at night... Talk about a sleepless, wide-awake nightmare... And not just for you, also for your local angry neighborhood!
But enough scary Cockatoo talk
What I want to talk to you about are highly effective training methods to help STOP and PREVENT ANY feathered nightmares... I want to show you some powerful training secrets that will help you towards your goal of owning a loving, talking, tricking, playful, and colorful feathered angel... like Polygon.

"...Thank you so much... He is so much more enjoyable…"
My husband and I have started taking showers with our bird named Cosmo. He absolutely LOVES it, and I would never have tried without reading your book.
His screeching and screaming (which is the reason I purchased her E-book) has also died down considerably. We leave the room completely and go back in and praise him when he stops. We have also learned that remaining calm and speaking softly to him but not leaving our seats until he stops works remarkably well as well.
Thank you so much for putting you ideas in writing! He is so much more enjoyable (in his adolescent years)! :)
Thanks - Terry & Renée St. John
"I'm very satisfied with the results I'm getting... She enjoys to be petted."
I had the opportunity to be able to use your training on my new parrot, and I'm very satisfied with the results I'm getting.
I started the course by reading the material on getting your bird to love you, and which bird to buy. To be honest the bird was kind of shy when she came home about 1 week ago, and she was biting my fingers. So I did as you have said to let her bite them, and now what she does is that she bites them so soft because she wants me to touch her head with them. She enjoys to be petted.
I'm trying also the part that you teach us how to feed your bird in low quantities, so that's the next step I'll take.
My bird is 4 months old, and in the next few days I'll read the other materials on training her to play games, etc...
For now I'm happy to get the response I'm getting from my new friend, Paulita Margarita. Thank you very much.
"This book puts its ideas into terms that you can understand... definite direction as to WHAT NOT TO DO"
After reading the Cockatoo Secrets, my parrot only being here for a few weeks are playing on their homemade wall mounted jungle gym, making their way back to their cage when hungry and thirsty and taking rides on our fingers (even my 4 year old).
As I speak to them, I can see direct eye contact, their eyes just light up. We can tell that they are concentrating intently on what we are saying. Though their flying feathers have not come back completely, they are still starting to venture around the house despite the other household pets who watch them, and almost appear to protect them.
This book puts its ideas into terms that you can understand, many things not thought of by the general population such as bathing, preventing illness, trying fresh food snacks and links to where you can buy supplies. There are useful tips about cage placement, ideas on how to make your bird comfortable and happy in any location and definite direction as to WHAT NOT TO DO.
"...This course has helped us a lot..."
I just loved the training course.
I adopted a parrot 2 years ago and have not been able to train him at all. In his last home he did not have much attention. so I have been struggling with biting and screaming for some time.
I have been doing the techniques in your course now for about 2 weeks. Screaming is less and I am now able to hold Cocoa. He comes out of his cage and walks the floor to find me.
This course has helped us a lot to have a nice companion for my family. Cocoa has even calmed down enough to let my youngest of 5 children (1 1/2 year old) pet him - with supervision of course. Very nice!
I thank you so much for the time and effort.
"I would strongly recommend this training course..."
There was so much information that seems to work for both of them. I would strongly recommend this training course for anyone who wants a great deal and fantastic customer service. I like the fact that I am not forgotten after the sale, and you still send me all kinds of new articles as well as training ideas.

"Downloading your book, or should I say books, was so simple
I'm a stranger to downloading E-books and was a little worried if I was doing the right thing... But I finally made up my mind...
Downloading your book, or should I say books, was so simple that I didn't believe that they had downloaded... Sure enough there they were... so quick... so simple... so worthwhile.
I found your information extremely valuable. Plus...this is a BIG plus...your enthusiasm in your writing is overwhelming... This straight forward... no nonsense composite guide is a great read about the well-being and upkeep, plus highly effective training techniques on parrots... and I've read loads, believe me.
"... Keep up the good work and if you come up with new stuff let me know."
I have found that the best part of your course is in the educating yourself on behalf of your bird and learning why they do what they do. You also stress the part of spending quality time and the placing of your bird in the house where they can see and hear you.
We have an eight month old parrot and already it is spoiled and thinks it is, and has always been, a part of the family. I can't remember having so much fun. Gracie jumps down off her perch and wanders through the house looking for me if I stay out. Her vocabulary is amazing. She rattles on for 45 minutes at a time. She is constantly learning new words and phrases.
I believe it is because where I read that you should spend quality time with them and become their friend. She has bonded with both my wife and me, and either one of can and does feed and baths her. She likes to sit on my shoulder and watch TV, while I feed her sun flower seeds. She has, from spending time, learned to trust me, and I am sure that I now have been adopted as part of her flock.
Keep up the good work, and if you come up with new stuff let me know.
"I am very glad we purchased your training course...."
I am writing back about your training course. My husband and I have been reading and searching for the right bird for us. We have actually decided to go with a parrot at Petsmart in Burnsville, Minnesota.
However, we have spent a lot of time looking, holding, and playing with all different birds. I have read some of your training course and it has helped minimize a lot if pet stores that don't take care of their birds properly.
I am very glad we purchased your training course, and I believe it will help us in the long run with our Dusky.
"(He) has now really become the family bird..."
With regard your training course my comments are as follows:
I wish I had got your course before getting my parrot. I found I was really struggling with my parrot as he would only allow me to touch him.
Since sharing your course with the whole family, we have progressed to the level where my wife can now pick him up and take him around the house. In fact he now even follows her even when I'm in the room. He is far more tolerant of the children (5 & 7 yrs) and has now really become the family bird, not just mine.
The E-books on diet and health were very informative and helpful. You also provide insight on maintaining your parrot. After reading this I was horrified at how my bird's wing had been clipped. My family and myself refer back to your course continually. Potty training was also helpful, and we are halfway there with having our bird potty trained.
"The course was helpful, especially the chapter on problem behaviors..."
I invested in your training course after purchasing a young female parrot. She was hand fed as a baby, but then the pet store made the mistake of putting her back in a cage with her siblings. She had become hostile and fearful of humans, and the pet store employees had nicknamed her "Jaws" because of her defensive biting when they caught her with their hands.
I'm a counselor, so I love a challenge, and I felt a bond when the little creature cuddled under my flannel shirt. I took her home and named her M.
The course was helpful, especially the chapter on problem behaviors, and how to get your parrot to love you. In no time she was stepping up onto a wooden perch, and she has not seriously bitten me now in about 3 weeks. To the contrary, she skitters to the end of the wood perch I use to Step Up, and cuddles in the hollow of my hand insisting I rub her head and neck. It's pretty amazing. It was also helpful to know which fruits and veggies I can safely feed my bird.
I find a parrot the perfect bird for a middle aged professional who works long hours at the office. Her life expectancy does not exceed mine, which is one less worry.
Her playpen is small enough to sit on the end table next to my recliner while I read or watch TV, allowing us daily time together. They naturally like to hide in pockets and shirts, which makes them adorable and convenient.
"Thank you so much for your insight and practical tips..."
Your training course was of immense help to me. Even with limited time due to two new babies in the house - one of the bird variety and one of the human variety, I have seen a dramatic change in the way that my parrot interacts with me and my husband.
I was concerned when we first bought him as he was showing an extreme level of nervousness and aloofness as birds tend to do. However, I believe it is your program that has trained us to interact with our new baby.
Thank you so much for your insight and practical tips. I will not hesitate to recommend your training program to any bird owner.
"Your material is easy to read and simple to follow..."
I haven't actually completed reading the entire course material. However, what I will say is that what I have read, I have learned from. My children and I are the proud owners of three lovely colorful birds (Ohla, Beeker & Baby Blue). Ohla had a tendency to bite but we have followed your tips and the biting has now very much reduced. Once in a while she tries, but we follow what you recommend and it doesn't occur for long periods of time after that.
My thirteen year old takes showers with all three of them and it completely calms them down. We never knew you could! They really enjoy their shower time. Baby Blue is now sticking her entire head into the water reservoir, which she never did before beginning her shower regime.
My son who is eleven takes part in their development as well, so the whole family is really enjoying these little creatures. They don't just remain in their cage.
Your material is easy to read and simple to follow. We're happy we found you on the internet. My two year old daughter also likes to have them on the edge of the tub when she takes her bath, and they are happy to stay there!
Thanks for the tips, they sure have helped.
" Thank You!!!
I was really depressed because I got sick and had to retire early. I bought a parrot which I named "Chi-Chi". He was scared to death of me at first until I purchased your course. Now he is tamed and knows I am his other "Daddy". He is a very happy bird. Sings "All' day long! He has added to my life richly. Thanks to following some of the simple training methods described your course I was able to bring much "Joy" to his life as he brings to our home. Thank You!!!
"Renge... is clearly saying Peekaboo, Baby Bird, C'mon, and Goodnight."
I am thrilled with your parrot training course. Your knowledge and understanding of these beautiful creatures is extraordinary.
I am a studio musician and producer, well known for playing the guitar on such shows as Seinfeld and Married With Children, as well as being a member of the Grammy award winning musical act Manhattan Transfer, Jean Luc Ponty and rocker Bryan Adams.
I have a parrot named Renge. He loves to accompany me in the car, in the recording studio and even for a ride on my scooter. Although I have to use a leash on the scooter. Your course has helped me build a relationship with him so he can be free around the house as well as the recording studio.
After 6 days with your course, Renge, who was already murmuring some words, is clearly saying Peekaboo, Baby Bird, C'mon, and Goodnite. He doesn't yet do it on command,but we are working on it. I am also working on the response to my questions exercise that you mention in your great book.
Your chapter on nutrition and feeding has opened a world of new foods for him to enjoy. I had been feeding him only "pretty bird" conure food and a piece of apple each day. Now he enjoys fruits and veggies, pasta, and I've even taken him to a couple of restaurants where he shares for example, rice at the Mexican restaurant.
There is much fun work to do thanks to your Cockatoo Secrets and I intend to get good at this as he gets better and better.
This past week there was a bird feeder making class at the HUTCHINGS MUSEUM in Lehi Utah. I was invited to bring Renge, and the 20 or so children loved him. The museum, upon hearing that it was Renge's birthday on May 1st, (he will be 1 year) has offered the museum for his birthday party. Now if that isn't a testament to him and your training methods, I don't know what is.
"... she now says 'Hi Gabby, Hello, Love you too...'"
Where do I start about your training course? First. I have been involved with avians of all sorts, but particularly parrots, since I was 8 years old... dating myself that would be 37 years. I have always been to many bird seminars, & I have tried to read everything I can get my hands on about information that I had not previously learned about or read elsewhere.
I had for the most part been a parrot person. Your course has been especially helpful in getting my parrot, Gabby, started on her speech, she now says " Hi Gabby, Hello, Love you too & Gabby like?" I couldn't believe how quickly she started & how soon she perfected the words. She speaks very clearly.
We are currently working on some trick ideas, as my daughter wants to be on "Pet Stars" and is determined to take Gabby to Hollywood.
I have shared some of your information on the biting & screaming issues with a dear friend of mine (although I advised her to purchase them for herself, which I believe she did), who rescued a Double yellow head, who had all his negative behaviors reinforced by his previous owners. She is reporting no blood draw for over a week, and the screaming stops with just a little "flock whistle" when she leaves the room.
So I must thank you so much for myself, as well as my girlfriend. She was really getting close to the end which would've meant I would have inherited her bird, & I am really quite content at the moment with my pet numbers. So thank you again for saving me from adopting one more parrot in need of reform, by helping my girlfriend through your training courses, to gain confidence, be able to read his body language & get the upper hand back.
