What advice can you give me on breeding my male and female cockatoo?

I have both a male and female cockatoo that I would like to breed, should I just put them in the same cage or is there something special I need to do.

Make sure the pair is bonded and healthy. Some species don't like to breed in captivity. Consult a local zoo or look for more information on

It seems fairly easy to breed cockatoos in captivity. Yes, you should put the male and female in the same cage, but because there is a possibility that the male might become aggressive during mating season, it is suggested that you seek a professional's help in clipping his wings.

they breed best in the winter season. You shoulf clip the males wing before the breeding season as they tend to get too agresive. And make sure thier cage is big enough for some flight, four feet is usally big enough.

You have to give them a breeder box for a nesting sight. Also, the birds must be in prime condition, especially the female. She needs vitamins and added calcium to her diet. You don't want her to get egg bound.
