I have the opportunity to purchase a U2.
I have experience with birds, and know the ups and downs of umbrellas. Can someone provide me with some good U2 websites, describing personality, play, snacks, treats, diet, etc.?
TIA.

I have the opportunity to purchase a U2. I have experience with birds, and know the ups and downs of ... for anyone living within half a mile of you. Resign yourself to having chewed woodwork and dust over every surface.

Sttart drafting adverts now for when you need to find it a new home. I have one and although I love her, she makes me tear my hair out sometimes.
I would never choose to get one, knowing what I know now. I didn't choose to get Pandora, she came from an owner who couldn't stand the noise. I have had to place her cage in a room not ajoining my neighbours house. When she lets rip, I cannot hear the television even if it is on full volume. Go to www.mytoos.com and turn your speakers full up to get some idea of what to expect.
Bob,
You are indeed a funny, funny man.
The U2 is indeed a cool plane.
Thanks for the laugh. Now, how's about sites for an Umbrella 'Too? ~Kimberlee

Molly,
Thank you for your thoughtful response.
Coming from a bird lover like you, it worries me that Pandora makes you tear your hair out.
My biggest concern, after reading mytoos.com (aside from the fact that it appears no one should own one of these magnificent, wild birds), is whether one can actually have a happy 'Too! It almost seems like these are all failure stories; are there any real success stories?

Of course you think you are the only one who can tolerate the noise.

In your pics it looks more like male pattern balding.

OK, enter the fool. My name is Bob and I have a happy M-Too. Peachboy was a throw away, his former owner died, he had been in a cage with no toys, nothing to chew up and feed a lot of crap, for about ten years, cage bound.

I spent nearly a year working with him, finding a way to develop trust, his and mine. He yells, I am half deaf, he chews things, but not the house, dust sucks but I have four shop vacs, wife is not always happy but hell she was not always happy before the Too. Now understand we worked damn hard to find a way to "make it work". I would trade the wife off before I placed this bird. She knows it. But having said that, what kind of dang fool would want a Too?

Pandora is not my only cockatoo. I also have a goffins who not only plucked but dug holes in her chest. Was stitched up several times and put on prozac for the last 8 years.
In my heart, although I love Pandora and little Maggie, I really don't think cockatoos are very good pets for the average pet owner. The fact that I am a bit dotty and a little deaf, makes life with Pandora tolerable lol.Thank goodness I also have extremely tolerant neighbours. I don't think Pandora is unhappy, she just likes to scream. So does my friend's mollucan and so does the goffins.
On balance, if you can offer a bird the normal routine and affection, I would say that there are easier birds out there than cockatoos.
