Im fairly new to forums and owning a U2. I felt kinda funny posting questions to any of the cockatoo sites because I didnt want to be ridiculed for not knowing much about my U2 before I got him. I have no regrets about rescuing my "Buddy" but I do have alot of questions that others might find funny or odd. I've done tons of research and feel a little over whelmed with all the information. Im not sure if I ask my questions now or if this is just to introduce myself. I guess I will start with introductions first and then start new forums with my questions. I got Buddy about nine months ago. I don't know much about previous owner so we are just slowly getting to know each other. From what I can tell or what I do know is he's about seventeen years old. I was told he is a he but im not too sure about that. He seems to have picked my husband as a mate and he tolerates me but loves to bully me. I swear he knows I've read alot about the damage they can cause and knows how to scare me. Im trying to be patient and not intimidated but I have to admit that's hard. Im just looking for any and all info on how to make sure buddy has the best possible forever home. Thank you!
